“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” -Eph 4:11-12
This ministry doesn’t happen without the passionate commitment of the body of Christ and the volunteers being the hands and feet of Jesus pouring out the love of God in all that we do! Ministry is taking place daily, weekly, and monthly at multiple levels! We would love to have you join us on an even deeper level and see what God can do through faithfulness and simply being available to have Him work through you.
