Get Involved

There is more than one way to change the world.

We understand that everyone wants to make a difference, and that we each have a unique calling. We exist to connect you and your passions with opportunities that will create a lasting, global impact. When you choose to engage with the world around you, your LIFE, and the lives of those you serve, will be changed. Here are some ways you can get involved:

 
PLANE

TAKE A SERV GLOBAL SERVICE MISSION TRIP. Go with us to Kenya, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Cambodia, and USA!

Mission trips are an exciting way to give back and make a huge difference by distributing food, building churches, loving on orphans, giving clean water, and telling people you care.

Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what some of our trip participants have to say:

Love. I saw and experienced love everywhere I went… What stood out above all was the love they [new orphans brought to House of Hope] received from the 40 children currently living at the House of Hope. They showed me how easy love is when we make it about someone else and not ourselves, and how language is not a barrier when love is your first language.” – Anne Rex (To read Anne’s full blog post about her experience, click HERE.)

The most fulfilling life purpose journey I’ve ever been on. To stand in the middle of nowhere and pump fresh water for people who’ve never had it changed my life. If you let the little things get to you, you’re stressed out at work, join SERV International on a mission trip and come back feeling truly grateful.” – Tom Sullivan (To read more about Tom’s most recent trip, click HERE.)

First, let me say words cannot explain the pure joy I received from being a part of giving a child hope. The blessing goes both ways, I believe Kevin (one of the new children) and I will always be blessed because of the love of Jesus Christ.” – Roy Prather (To read more about the trip Roy participated in, click HERE.)

Donate

INVEST FINANCIALLY: Start a micro-campaign to raise funds for SERV or make a donation to one of our projects

SERV cultivates long-term relationships with communities in Kenya and the Dominican Republic. Once we’ve connected with a community, we can begin to further understand the needs of the community. When we learn the needs of the people we love, we undertake projects like building wells, greenhouses, orphanages, and implementing water filtration systems. And it’s no secret that projects like these cost money!

We love when individuals, families, schools, colleges, clubs, community groups, youth groups, churches, and groups of friends host their own micro-campaign to make a difference in the lives of others locally and globally.

Whether you give of your own resources or choose to spread the word to your friends and community through a micro-campaign, we would encourage you to never underestimate how God can use the resources we give back to Him.

To find out more about the projects SERV is currently engaged in raising funding for, please see the DONATE page. To find out how you can start your own micro-campaign, check out the page titled CAMPAIGN.

 

Sponsor

SPONSOR A CHILD: Impact the life of a child at our House of Hope in Kenya

SERV’s House of Hope child sponsorship program allows you to build a personal relationship with a specific child or children, of your choosing, who will know your name and connect with you throughout the year. House of Hope offers a loving, Christian environment where children receive nutritious food, clean safe water, clothing, shelter, education, medical care, and spiritual development.

VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME: Come join our team at an event, in the office, or in the SERV Store
