Strong Families Ministry
There is a clear mandate from Scripture to care for those who need caring for. Jesus even went as far as saying when we serve others we are serving Him (Matthew 25:40). At Engage we do as our name implies and look to serve our community the best way possible. Partnering with Olive Crest is one way we have chosen to make a difference.
Olive Crest transmforms the lives of children in crisis through the power of God, family, and community. Combined, they served over 200,000 children and families since 1973.
