Join the MSM Support Team

MSM support team is for adults/older teens who are unable make a monthly/multi-night commitment to the MSM Ministry but are still willing and excited to support our ministry to the youth. Support Team members are invaluable to our ministry as they allow our Core members to focus their attention on the youth before/during/after our sessions. Support Team is also an excellent opportunity to meet our MSM families and build community.
