Local & Regional

You care. You’ve been hard-wired by God to care.
At CVC, we want to learn how to better reflect the heart and hands of God for the oppressed. We may not be able to do everything, but we can do something. We can be courageous missionaries cleverly disguised – bringing hope, transformation and salvation to people in need.

We pray that you have been encouraged toward missional living by informing you about volunteer opportunities in Northeast Ohio. Thanks for being part of CVC as we seek to invite people to new life in Christ.

You can download the printable booklet or view the missions opportunities online.

We also have a number of local and regional volunteer opportunities through our church planting partnerships.  Similar to our local opportunities, you’ll want to contact the churches directly to find out more about volunteering.
