There are serving options for every personality, skill set, and schedule. No matter where your gifts and interest lie, there's a place for you on our team.
You can help us to achieve our mission of Radical Hospitality, to Love Everyone, to Challenge Everyone and to be a Disciple for His people.

The Food Pantry desperately needs volunteers for the summer. On Tuesday mornings we need people with trucks, vans, or SUVs willing to drive down to the San Antonio Food Bank to pick up food and deliver it to the Ministry Center. We need people willing to unload those trucks and more at the Ministry Center. This is usually a 3 hour commitment. On Thursday mornings we need people to bag groceries, stock shelves, move orders from the food pantry to the distribution area, place groceries in client vehicles, and direct traffic. During Project Transformation we will also need someone to drive volunteers from their cars in the China Sea parking lot to the Ministry Center and back. This is usually a 4 hour commitment.
