Volunteers In service (VIS)

Volunteers In Service empowers Christians to join Christ’s work in their community. As people of faith, we know that service is a powerful way for individuals to express and experience Christ’s love. Volunteers In Service helps the Christian community answer the call to serve with an open mind and a ready heart.

Just as Jesus washed the feet of His disciples, Volunteers In Service helps people of faith and their churches prepare their minds, hearts, and hands for service shaped by humility.
