  • Be prepared to do evangelistic and compassionate outreach work for every age, from children to seniors, in a variety of environments with weekly trips to such places as street missions, transition houses, shelters, soup kitchens, prisons, drug rehabs, and at-risk youth programs.
  • Use your gifts in such areas as dance, music, drama, sports, and tech each week in ministry opportunities.
