Membership Ministry

Help newcomers learn about the joy of commitment as a member.

Purpose & Mission

Participants in the membership ministry join in educating prospective members about our Center and our philosophy. This is a great opportunity to share what you know with others and help them discover a new life.

About Us

We encourage members of this ministry to learn as much as they can about our teaching and Center so they can help others learn. If you have a passion for sharing your love of commitment to our Center, this may be a way for you to serve.
