Weekly/Monthly Mission Opportunities


Straight street

Downtown Roanoke

Help cook and serve a meal on the first Saturday of each month at this ministry that serves at-risk teenagers in downtown Roanoke. Encourage your friends or church group to choose just one Saturday to help, and our church can easily cover more than a year.

Street Ransom

Roanoke County

Street Ransom will serve as a refuge for young adults recently rescued from sex trafficking in the greater Roanoke area. Because of the nature of the ministry, individuals will not be allowed on the campus, but this is a great opportunity for you or your Bible Study class to donate supplies to this newly-developed ministry.
