where can i serve?

You were created on purpose, with purpose, by a God who thinks your life is way too important to let you spend it all on yourself. Our desire is to help you discover and develop your life’s purpose by offering you opportunities to serve and connect. Whether you are people-oriented or task-oriented, an introvert or extrovert, a long-term follower or just checking God out, we have a place for you. 

*Shepherd of the Hills takes the safety of our youth very seriously. If you will be working with children, you must complete our training program, Protecting God’s Children, and be subject to a background check. Contact Angie Renner for additional info at arenner@sothfamily.org.
