Serve With Us

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. -MATTHEW 25:35-40

Crisis Ministry

We have four locations providing counseling, food, clothing, furniture, household items, and financial assistance for rent/mortgage utilities, heat, homeless prevention/rapid rehousing services. Each location needs people to serve in the receptions areas, food pantries, clothing rooms, and counseling. To serve, contact Sheryl Olsen, director of ABCCM's Crisis Ministries.

Veterans Restoration Quarters (VRQ)

At the VRQ we welcome individuals, families, and groups, whether from churches, business, or just a group of friends, to serve. We need people to serve in the kitchen to prepare and serve meals, barbers/beauticians, work teams, teachers and facilitators, receptionists, data entry clerks, entertainers, and chaplains to listen, offer spiritual information, and prayer. To serve in one of these areas, contact Steve Miller, volunteer coordinator at ABCCM's Veterans Restoration Quarters.

Steadfast House

At Steadfast House we welcome individuals, families, and groups, whether from churches, business, or just a group of friends, to serve. We need people to serve in the kitchen to prepare and serve meals, barbers/beauticians, work teams, teachers and facilitators, receptionists, data entry clerks, entertainers, child care providers, and chaplains to listen, offer spiritual information, and prayer.

Medical Ministry

In partnership with Mission Hospital, this ministry provides essential medical primary care services including a dental clinic and pharmacy. This facility holds the highest level of accreditation for free clinics. We always need volunteer physicians, dentist, dental hygienists, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, receptions, and data entry clerks. To serve in one of these areas, contact Maia Price, volunteer coordinator at ABCCM's Medical Ministry.

Jail Ministry

Serving with the jail ministry is different than serving in other areas of ABCCM.  You must complete a background check, attend the Buncombe County Detention Center volunteer orientation, attend an ABCCM volunteer orientation, and must be at least 21 years old. We need people to serve as Bible study leaders, discussion leaders, library assistance, tutors, mentors and chaplains. To serve in one of these areas, contact Chaplain Norm Sanders.

Special Events

ABCCM hosts a variety of special events throughout the year.  These events are essential to informing our community of the many services ABCCM provides, while also helping raise funds for ABCCM's many areas of ministry. We need people to assist with event planning, setup, decorating, and day of coordination. To serve in one of these areas, contact Brad Owen, special events director at ABCCM's Servant Leadership Center.
