Serve Local & Global Communities

For us, faith is a verb. We believe God transforms us and invites us to be active in changing the world – by starting first in our own backyard. We serve based on what we’re passionate about, so we’ll work to help find where you fit so that you can serve in a way that suits you individually with any amount of time or commitment.

Our most recent local partnership is with Neighbor Helping Neighbor Service Coalition that serves students and families in need within the Francis Howell School District. We’re also involved in Operation Backpack which provides food to elementary students who may not get enough to eat outside of their school. Regionally and internationally we train teams to be responders in natural disasters and send teams to build schools and homes in countries experiencing extreme poverty.

Spiritual Gifts Survey

Each of us is gifted by God in a unique and specific way and we encourage you to discover the unique traits that you can offer back to God. Once completed, we work to help you find a service area that will allow you to put your gifts to work. Complete the survey HERE ›
