Our coaches are all volunteers who lead specific areas of ministry. They choose to lead their areas (such as kids, discipleship, or finances) because they care about our vision of reaching outsiders, and they can help make that happen through their abilities and dedication. The goal of the coaches is to have more people cared for because more people are caring.
