You can make a difference in the lives of high school students.
REALIFE currently meets Wednesdays from 7 - 8:30 p.m. Leaders arrive at 6 p.m. to meet before students arrive (or earlier, if you want to come and help set up). Leaders can serve in a variety of capacities, from task-oriented to relationally-orientated roles. Some leaders do both. You could serve checking students in, serving food, leading games, helping with production or worship, or simply be free to build relationships with students to lead them closer to Jesus.
No matter how you serve at REALIFE, our primary goals are to help students know they matter, they belong, and God wants to help them live their best lives possible. If that excites you, check out the ways you can serve below, then fill out the REALIFE Volunteer Interest form below.
