Can you help? - we need volunteers. This ministry requires people who have facilitation, counselling, spiritual direction, educational, office, financial managing, computer and organisational skills. You might be able to help with retreat ministry or in backup support. Whether you can offer one hour or many hours a month you could assist greatly in this ministry. You can assist without leaving your home. No matter how small you offer may seem to you, every offer might just be what we need at the time. So let us know. Anyone interested in supporting this ministry please email, or the contact person in your state, with your contact details and you will be contacted by us to discuss how you might be able to assist.
