Volunteers are Integral to Prodigal’s Mission

At the heart of Prodigal Ministries’ mission is the desire to share the grace and love we have received from God with those who are in desperate need of His grace and love.  Volunteers are an integral part of Prodigal Ministries, working on behalf of and walking alongside our clients.

There are numerous ways you can volunteer your time to help our clients; from providing transportation to church, medical appointments, parole officer meetings and grocery shopping, to leading bible studies, providing meals, and collecting household and hygiene items for clients.

SECC Workday at Wright House
Southeast Christian Church volunteers remove brush from fence row on workday at the Wright House in May.

One recent Saturday in May, a group of men from Southeast Christian Church’s Oldham campus (SECC), joined staff and clients for a workday at one of Prodigal’s residential homes, the Wright House in Buckner, Ky.  Led by Mark Cappo, the SECC volunteers power-washed the house and cleared brush from fence row and lot behind the house. They also organized and cleaned a Prodigal warehouse on the same property, and mowed the lawn.  The group took a break for a lunch of grilled burgers and hot dogs, cooked by the staff.

Immediate needs:

– a family or small group to bring a meal and perhaps join the men for Bible study at the Wright House on the 4th Tuesday of each month, beginning in August.

– twin-sized blankets (new, please)
