Our SERVE Program provides deep meaningful opportunities for servants (volunteers) to enrich the lives of the Treasures as well as their own. After the experience of serving the Treasures you will gain a very personal appreciation of the many types of poverty and a love for the people who are afflicted by them.
SEE CHANGE. BE CHANGED.
We have been working with servants for over three decades and it has been an incredible blessing! We strive to make missions trips a life-changing experience for all participants: the churches that send servants and gifts, the servants who come to serve, the people working at Potter’s House, and of course the Treasures. We offer the following mission trips:
Intended for churches or organizations that want to expose individuals to the eye-opening experience of serving the poor. Participants will experience first-hand what God is doing in the communities.
This option gives your youth group an opportunity to participate in the adventure of serving the poor in a exciting and exotic place. It is a great way to help strengthen young adults' faith and character and change their perspective on life.
Through this experience you can strengthen the relationships with your family members as you serve together in a Christian organization. Every member of the family can use their talents and abilities to share God's love to the poor.
This is the chance for individuals to work side by side with the staff in daily activities. From short term volunteer opportunities to internships to long-term mission, individuals will have the opportunity to use their skills and experience to enhance our programs.
