Volunteers are needed to host an Alpha Table, which is like hosting people in your home. Volunteers seek to make every guest feel welcomed. You are not a teacher or answer-giver, rather a conversation facilitator. The relationships built around the Alpha table are key to hearts being opened to the message of Jesus.

STARS volunteers are salt and light to our city by helping change the trajectory of kids’ lives through encouragement, healthy relationships, academic support and serving as positive role models to children in our community. Volunteers meet weekly with a group of two to four students at their school during lunch to talk, eat and read a book together. You don’t have to be a trained teacher or tutor, all you need is a heart to encourage students, help them along as they read and show interest in their lives. These practical ways of showing them the love of Jesus make a HUGE impact in their lives!
