Volunteers

"As the Father has sent me, so I send you." --John 20:21

As followers of Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are called to serve the lost and hurting and to proclaim the good news of the gospel in our local community and throughout the world. Each of us has been called to participate in God's mission. Each of us is SENT.

RCA Volunteer Engagement exists to help you engage personally in God's mission through meaningful volunteer opportunities. We believe that as people serve in the name of Christ, whether in their local community or around the world, the impact of that service will change lives--the lives of those being served, of those who serve, and of the churches that send.
