Outreach

VGF Outreach provides opportunities to those in the body to serve in the local community and overseas through evangelism and social services. Our ministry has a strong benevolence aspect with out food pantry and defenders ministry meeting needs in the body and in the community.

As an extension of the Serve component of the body, we connect people to VGF through benevolence and community outreaches. We also provide opportunities for people to serve in local nursing homes, jails, and the Salvation Army as well as various community outreaches. VGF Outreach seeks to accomplish the great commission by making disciples of Christ through injecting the hope of the Gospel of Jesus in a practical way.
