Partnering with the Community
We strive to reach out to local communities by partnering with community agencies to help assist those whom they serve and to provide opportunities for groups and individuals to serve those in need.
Missionaries are needed in a variety of ways. If you're interested, talk to your bishop about missionary service opportunities. Missionaries help by:
- Mentoring individuals.
- Teaching life and work skills.
- Teaching English.
- Helping individuals find a job.
- Developing community resources.
- Coordinating community service projects.
