Jesus had a relationship OUT with the world.
Jesus and his disciples went out to their wider community, letting their lives speak louder than words. We are made to be a part of God’s mission and are sent to serve and love people in Jesus’ name. We are made to have loving relationships OUT with the world around us.
We believe there’s something for everyone, whether you can give one day, one week or 52. Serve at RiverTree. Serve locally or internationally. Try out some until you find one that really fits. You might find a new talent or hobby, and you’ll certainly grow in community and impact lives.
SERVE AT RIVERTREE JACKSON
It takes hundreds of volunteers to make RiverTree Gatherings happen every weekend. We’re always looking for more folks to do everything from hang out with kids to greeting folks at the door. Just give it a try. If you don’t like it, you can try something else. Serving at RiverTree gives you the opportunity to meet new friends, grow spiritually and be a part of something bigger than yourself.
