Disciples Volunteering strongly encourages local mission engagement. Mission Inns and other Partners may have different protocols in place – see the list at the bottom of this page. Recommended safety guidelines and best practices for serving in mission have been compiled and are available here.

Disciples Volunteering continues to Call, Connect, Equip, and Send Servants and the Church for Service with the Community. Disciples serving community move from volunteer to servant to neighbor to friend as we Get Dirty for Jesus together.
