Service and Volunteering
"The willingness to Serve is not sitting home saying 'Call Me'. The willingness to serve is getting up and knocking on the door of the place and saying 'Is there something here I can do to assist you?' That is the willingness to Serve. It's not just clear intention; it's intention made clear, by going and presenting yourself to that idea."
Volunteers have been the backbone of MSIA since it started. We wouldn't be the great organization we are today without them. We have often said that our volunteers carry the Spirit of MSIA. We continue to be a healthy, growing Church and we need more assistance from volunteers.
The world has changed these last few years due to the rapid advance of the computer. Thanks to email, we are able to have MSIA staff live in different parts of the country and be able to keep in touch with them as if they were in the same building. We would love to have many volunteers working with us in the same way. But even if you do not have a computer, there are still volunteer jobs that you can do that would really help us out.
Please take a moment to look through some of the volunteer opportunities below and see if there is anything that looks like you would enjoy doing. You will see that each job has a staff supervisor, so please feel free to contact that person and discuss the job with them.
If you live in the Los Angeles area you are welcome to come to MSIA's headquarters at Peace Labyrinth & Gardens to serve. You can also contact us by phone (323) 737-4055 for more information about volunteer opportunities at MSIA's headquarters.
Thanks and we love our volunteers!

"We want people to volunteer. We just really do because it's not an organization of staff people. You understand, if it was just staff, there would be thirty of us in the room, and it would be mutual admiration meeting. It's not that. It's all of us."
