Volunteerism and Mentorship

Posted on Sep 30, 2015 in Freedom

When we talk about having freedom in our lives, we believe this includes having the freedom in our schedules to give our time, talents and resources, to the people, projects and organizations we care about.

According to BBBS, only one out of ten new volunteers that enroll as a “Big” is male, while the majority of children applying to be partnered with a mentor are boys being raised by a single female parent.

Client’s Mission Trip to Ghana

Posted on Oct 28, 2014 in Freedom

One of Darrell’s clients, Lynn Schertz, participated with his church on a mission trip to Ghana earlier this year. Here is a small excerpt from Lynn’s mission report: “Myself, our senior pastor and children’s pastor hosted a Christian worker’s conference attended by about 100 people.  We distributed 30 study Bibles as well as other Bibles and literature, gave seminars, and our pastor led 2 revival services attended by over 200 people each night from the small village where the conference was held.  We also took 250 pairs of reading glasses with us as many of the people have poor vision due to poor nutrition. We made many new friends and hope to continue our relationship with these people in Ghana.”  If you are on Facebook, you can go to to see the latest video of the latest trip, journey five or more information can be found at...
