Called to Serve
REACH, TEACH, MEND & SEND
Thank you for your interest in this year’s Called to Serve series. Below are the required assignments and expectations for the class. We want you to know that the entire staff is here to assist you if you need help. Our study together will be intense and the assignments will require diligence to complete. You will study hard but we are confident that your foundation of faith will be strengthened and, most importantly, you will grow closer to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We look forward to a great work of God as we put to practice these teachings on servant leadership.
It is of the utmost importance that you attend each session in the Called to Serve series. The sessions are structured in a way that each class builds on the previous one. To take full advantage of what Called to Serve has to offer it is important that you are able to commit to all six sessions.
