How It Works
Christian churches and organizations identify a community need(s) and then develop and host one or more short-term (2-8 hours) projects which can be completed by a group of 5-50 volunteers.
Promotion of your project(s) is done through your own church/organization communication channels. Joy FM radio is the primary media ambassador and will heavily promote the event; additional media outlets will also be tapped to get the word out. Christian churches, organizations, and companies unable to create a project can be involved by promoting available projects with their audiences.
Individual project listings and a simple registration process will be located on the Serve St. Louis website, making it easy for volunteers to sign-up and for you to track who is coming to your project. Individuals/groups can begin signing up for projects in September.
Churches and organizations receive on-going mentoring and training from a church/organization with more experience in organizing projects at this level.
Host Church or Organization
Host Churches and Organizations are responsible for identifying, developing, and hosting one or more short-term (2-8 hours) service projects that can be completed by a group of 5-50 volunteers.
Whether your church is involved in doing service projects every month or just thinking about how to reach into the community, Serve St. Louis is a great way to connect with others, get ideas, and serve the community.
Churches wishing to host a project will need to have one or more people who can coordinate all project logistics.

Promoting Church or Organization
Perhaps your church or organization is new to this type of serving experience. It can be a little overwhelming, but there's a way for you to test the waters and get your feet wet.
Promoting Churches, Organizations, and Companies promote the idea of honoring Jesus? name by serving the community in practical ways - real people meeting real needs and making a difference in the name of Jesus. It sounds simple and it is - just actively encourage your congregants, staff, and volunteers to sign up for one of the Serve St. Louis projects. Serving changes hearts and lives...watch for it!
