AMBASSADORS & DEACONS RESOURCES

Become an Ambassador!

An Ambassador acts as World Renew's key contact and resource person in your church. You will ensure that devotional materials, bulletin inserts, videos, and other vital resources get to the right people (such as your church's Mission Team). Through you, more people will learn how to get involved in life-changing World Renew projects! A key part of your role will be promoting and supporting 2-3 World Renew campaigns or programs a year in your church—which amounts to approximately 5 hours of service per month.
