Missions & Volunteer Opportunities

Missions

We are called by God to restore and redeem all of God’s creation. 

Mount Olivet’s Mission & Outreach team helps our congregation answer that call to serve in ministry with and for our neighbors throughout the world. This work is broad, and Mission & Outreach seeks to help our congregation be the hands and feet of Christ through hands-on work to restore and empower Christ’s community.
