Make a Local Impact

Where can you help close the gap?

At Resurrection, we believe God is calling us to close the gap between where the world is and where the world should be. Here’s the thing… we can’t close the gap without your help. God uses communities of people who are willing to show up and make a difference in the world around them. 

Are you ready to help us close the gap? If so, we have many opportunities to show up with your time, talent, and resources along with a simple process to get involved right away.
