MOM AND VOLUNTEER

"Last year, RISE UP! recommended volunteers attend the Orange Conference put on by the curriculum company that partners with RISE UP. The leaders explained how developmental differences affect the way students mature in their spiritual life.  These principles can be used to help make God's Word practical and meaningful to the children at RISE UP! meetings."

DAD AND VOLUNTEER

"To quote King David, “I will become even more undignified than this, but it is before The Lord that I celebrate.”  I desire for my children to see the lengths I will go - to make a fool of myself for the Gospel of Christ!  Thank you RISE UP! for granting me that desire!"

PARENTS AND VOLUNTEERS

Melanie: "God asked me to take a step of faith at our school and trust that He would guide and provide.  I love the opportunity to share the Gospel and engage with the kids in a crazy, messy way!"

Jason:  "Melanie is the heart and soul of our chapter leadership;  God just put the crazy idea in my head.  We love serving together and are thankful God called us to serve Him in this ministry."
