Thanks for your interest in volunteering! It takes hundreds of volunteers in dozens of different jobs to welcome all of our amazing guests. Because of volunteers that faithfully serve:

-Hope is restored.
-Guests are welcomed.
-Christ is lifted up!
-Lives are changed.

We also believe that serving is not just for others’ benefit, but is a catalyst for the individual to grow in their relationship with God. Jesus said that he didn’t come to be served, but to serve. If Christ made it a priority to serve others, we believe that it’s our mandate as well.

Don’t take it from us! Watch the videos below to hear from some of the current incredible volunteers and why they serve.
