A lifestyle of service is at the core of who, and what, the ALERT program is all about. The reason for this service is so that others may learn and grow closer to God. We don’t serve the kingdom because we have some idea that we must be the strongest, or we must be the best, or we must work the hardest. We serve as a light that shines Christ to the world.
What better way to show Christ’s love to those around us than to meet their needs through serving them? So we go on deployments, and take the opportunities God brings us to work hard to serve the communities God has placed us in, so that we may shine His light, through our service, by His strength.
