Volunteerism is essential to the vibrancy of Renaissance Unity and the structures which have been developed to coordinate and maintain our volunteer efforts are ENGAGEMENT TEAMS and MINISTRIES. Following is a list of the Engagement Teams/Ministries that have been organized. Congregants are encouraged to review the mission of each Engagement Team/Ministry and search their hearts in consideration of serving on the team or ministry that is the best fit.
