Partnerships are the most effective way to break the cycle of poverty. MUST serves with churches, civic groups, businesses, non-profits, government agencies, foundations and individuals. MUST provides opportunities for your church to partner with us on-campus AND off!

Here are some ways your church can partner with us!

Pray

MUST has been a beacon of hope and a place of refuge for more than 40 years. This could not have been possible without community support. This goes beyond our generous donors and volunteers. Please join us in our mission to respond to Christ’s call by praying with us as a church family.

Participate

There are several opportunities and ideas that can get your church involved in serving their neighbors in need!

Put together a Gobble Jog team! The Gobble Jog, MUST’s annual event raising more than $1,000,000 over the past eight years, is not only a great way to serve your community together as a church family, but also a great way to  stay in shape!
