We exist to bring glory to God by "Being" and "Making" committed Followers of Jesus Christ. Jesus has taught us that we are to enact our faith not through words alone, but also in our actions. Being a disciple means being an agent of physical hope to a world that God is redeeming. Good Shepherd sees the world through God's redeeming lenses, and the role of our church and the Church (Universal) is to begin the work of restoration that we know God will finish at the second coming (Revelation 21). Out of this gospel-centered service is the overflow of discipleship, serving those in and outside the church. One of the ways we pursue and live out this discipleship trait is through volunteer opportunities.
