Did you know that Desert Southwest Conference engages a group of more than 600 people each year? You too can volunteer to do ministry across our communities and around the world! Behind every single event you attend, article you read on our website and newsletter, or follow on twitter, instagram, and facebook, there is a dedicated volunteer just like you helping to make it happen. Every year we call on our members to sign up to serve in ministry with the Conference. Sadly, many of those registrations get lost in the shuffle and people never hear back! This year, Connectional Ministries has automated key connection points to make sure that if you sign up to do ministry at the Conference, you will be contacted immediately and receive information about what happens next. Take a moment to let us know what your passion and interest in ministry might be and lets see how we can change the world together!
