Steps to Serve
Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer in the Canines for Christ Pet Therapy Ministry. Please contact Larry Randolph if you want to be involved! The purpose of this outreach ministry is as follows:
- Making a difference in the lives of people that are in need of love, hope, and compassion by using our beloved family dogs to break down the barriers of communication.
- Letting our dogs become "Jesus with fur on" to open the door for us to share God's great message as told in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son and that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." This message is conveyed by a kind word, tender touch, prayer, and presenting the "salvation card" that is left with each patient.
