Ready To Get Involved

“I love volunteering for Freedom because it gives me a chance to serve right here where I live. I get to see the kids we work with at the grocery store and the local park. Jesus tells us to make disciples, and with Freedom for Youth I can share the Gospel in my ‘Jerusalem.’” – Emily, Volunteer
