For four weeks a year, volunteers from Faith welcome up to four families at our church. A typical week of hosting involves 90+ Faith volunteers who put in over 400 hours.

Families Moving Forward team is looking for a “Wednesday Team of Ten Leader”
The Team of Ten provides shared leadership for the FMF, as we host families for 4 weeks each year. In preparation for and during each hosting week, the Team of Ten ensures FMF families’ needs are met and trained volunteers are in place to create a homelike atmosphere where guests can receive what they need most: rest, rejuvenation, hope, respect, a confidence boost, and a sense of control in their lives.
The time requirement would be the Wednesday evening of each hosting week from 5:00-8:30PM and an occasional time slot on Friday evening or Saturday day/evening (approx. 5-8 hrs total).
