How can I get involved?
Whether you have an hour a month or an hour a day, we would love your help!
If you're new to Women of Vision and World Vision, we suggest you begin by joining the first Heart of the Matter study that works for your schedule. Come to speaker events. Think about joining a team: sponsorship, events, development, communications, hospitality, partnership. Schedule a meeting with us to discuss how your gifts and talents can best be applied. We know there is a place with us to serve!
Here's an outline of different ways to come onboard:
