Every year, more than 28,000 people choose to live and serve in communities across the United States and the world through faith-based service programs. They choose service for many reasons - to give to others, to learn about themselves, to build community, to explore their faith, to shape their future - and they all come out of the experience deeply changed in their own way. But one thing is always true. No matter what each person comes to faith-based service seeking or walks away from it understanding, it always begins with a choice.
