Serving God with Your Hands

We could always use extra hands to help us in sharing the love of Jesus with hurting people! If you have a passion, spiritual gift, or a willingness to serve the Lord in some way, we’d love to talk together about how you can use that thing to serve God at Hope Alive!

 

Below is a list of common ways volunteers can help with the ministry of Hope Alive but don’t be limited by the list! If you have a service idea, please email us so we can talk more! DawnE@hopealivefortwayne.org
