1 in 3 women will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime even in the Christian community! Maybe you were one of them or you knew someone who was in an abusive relationship and you saw firsthand the effect. Hope can make a difference in someone’s life. Our volunteers become part of a ministry team that invests in the lives of hurting people. Every task our volunteers choose to do for the ministry is significant.
Our ministry team plays a vital role in providing a safe place where hope and healing in Jesus Christ can occur and lives can be transformed from oppression to freedom. We invite you to be part of this team through our volunteer opportunities. Some volunteer opportunities are as needed and others are an ongoing basis.
