Mission Volunteers

People are eager to help those in need. They are looking for joy in troubled times. They are finding it through living out their faith by serving those who are suffering. Faith and good works go heart and hand.

"Mission Volunteers" is especially appealing to youth group leaders. A mission trip to Epworth could be the turning point in young lives. Christians are more concerned with meeting the needs of others than accumulating treasures for ourselves.

Learn What Hands-on Experience Can Teach You

When young people observe others in tough situations-those needing home repairs, families lining up for a free meal or men looking for any chance to work-they learn to approach these times with a right attitude. They learn this by hands-on experience. We guarantee they will begin to seek wisdom from God.

As we gain a new respect for the less fortunate we recognize that our actions should correspond with inward faith. This is the true blessing and eternal value in participating in a "Mission Trip" to Epworth.

Holding a food drive and stocking shelves for Second Harvest Food Bank, packing and delivering groceries destined for poverty stricken housing areas, sacking oyster shells for reef building and participating in a neighborhood clean-up are but a few of the mission projects available.

Hi, I'm Christina.

Most days you can find me in the dance studio or at church.

I love serving the world by being inspiring and motivating through teaching dance and talking to groups about my life experiences. There is a saying, "take the seed you have been given and sow it'. My purpose and mission in life are to share God's love in all that I do. Leading worship and sharing my story teaches how the truth can set you free! Psalm 95:1 "Come let us sing for joy to the Lord: let us shout aloud to the rock of our salvation".

I am mostly known as "The Dancer".

The things I am most passionate about in life are loving my husband and family, teaching etiquette to my students and how to be humble and loving towards others. I'm also passionate about a few simple things in my daily life that bring me joy. Strolling trough my flower garden every morning with a good cup of coffee, walking my dog, Charlie, riding bikes, walking on the beach, cooking and gardening.

Won't you take a moment today and reflect on who you are? Where you can be found? How you serve the world? How are you known? The things you are most passionate about? You deserve to give yourself some attention and praise, you are beautifully and wonderfully made!
