Come volunteer with us for the opportunity of a lifetime!
Short-term volunteers, or "Mission Volunteers" as we call them, are welcome to join us for any period of time between one week and three months. They primarily serve at our campus, in a variety of ways. However, they also have the opportunity to get off campus and do ministry in the local community, with our staff, at least once a week. If you would like to volunteer, it is necessary to complete all the application steps below.
We provide food, housing, and pick up/drop off in San Diego, California. You must be at least 18 years of age. We will contact you after we receive your application! Thank you for your desire to serve.
