Paige Ferrari is a senior at GCU studying Communications and serves in the Spiritual Life department as part of the Global Outreach Team. Although she’s from Southern California, Paige finds herself falling in love with the people, culture and lifestyle of Phoenix, and hopes to permanently move here after graduation. She is a passionate writer, reader and coffee connoisseur; she is always looking for some creative words over a cup of coffee.
Just a couple of weeks ago, the Grand Canyon University Global Outreach team had their glory during GO Week 2015. Now, it’s time for the Local Outreach team.
The hardworking Local Outreach student leaders are putting on a week of fun events through Oct. 3, sharing their passion for the community that we live in.
Local Outreach weekly ministries give you the opportunity to help in the city that you live in. You can serve your community and make a difference by volunteering to play with kids, tutor or even help teach health and wellness classes.
The volunteers that join student leaders are what make these ministries possible. The longest standing ministry, Canyon Kids, is a day camp on Saturday mornings and always has an amazing turn out of student volunteers who pour their hearts into the lives of neighborhood kids.
Lives are radically transformed by the volunteers. In return, volunteers will find a community of other students who serve alongside them in Jesus’ name.
To finish off this week, on Saturday, Oct. 3, GCU will continue their partnership with Habitat for Humanity by sending students into the community to fix up some of the homes that need a little TLC.
For more information on how to get involved with Local Outreach, stop by Hegel Hall – one of the student leaders would love to chat with you!
