Make a difference in someone’s life by serving in Mission Outpost. Several safety precautions are in place to create a safe space for our guests, volunteers and staff. Volunteers must attend an orientation session before they can serve. During this orientation we will share safety protocols and describe the different areas where you can serve. Please register here for our next volunteer orientation on September 14 at 6:30 pm in the Atrium of the Christian Life Center.

Volunteers who have completed orientation must also sign up for a shift in advance. No walk-in volunteers will be accepted, due to COVID-19 precautions. If you are interested in serving with Mission Outpost, please email us at outpost@popmn.org.
