Many times, the children in Mt. Olive Ministries are the recipients of service. However, this year, we will be working alongside children and adults in the community to help beautify properties of elderly people living in the community.
    Skill level: All levels! We will be cleaning, landscaping (including the installation of sprinkler systems), and painting. (If you have skill in plumbing, carpentry, or electrical areas, these will also be employed!)
  2. Rebuilding a carport for Mt. Olive Ministries. Teen & adult volunteers. We’ll need a person with carpentry experience who can direct this effort.
  3. Workshops for the children to introduce skills. Career workshops (carpentry, gardening, landscaping, graphic design, computer programming, nursing, etc.) as well as creative workshops (sculpting, watercolors, dance, etc.), academic workshops (computer skills, research skills, tutoring, etc.) and homemaking workshops (cooking, baking, ironing, sewing, organizing, money management). The possibilities are limitless! What has God gifted you with that you could teach these children?

We are staying "home" this year, but the fun, fellowship, times of worship, and going deeper with Jesus are not to be missed.

Margaret was recently named one of 50 women most shaping culture and the church today by Christianity Today, one of the 30 Voices who will help lead the church in the next decade by Charisma magazine and one of 40 who will shape Christian publishing by Christian Retailing magazine. Margaret lives in Utah with her husband, Leif, and their superpup, Hershey. She believes some of the best days are spent in jammies, laughing, and being silly.

Come spend the weekend with Margaret and other Venture women. Bring a friend, your bible, and an open heart ready to learn laugh and find your joy!

I will rejoice in the Lord. I will be joyful in God my Savior.
— Habakkuk 3:18
