Glory Soldiers Global is a tax exempt organization whose focus is to assist individuals and families who have experienced the affects of child sexual abuse including homelessness.
Featured in Essence Magazine (Bridal Bliss) Feb 2014, The Huffington Post, Fox News "Pay It Forward", a host of other blogs and television outlets, this couple (Ressurrection and Deven) overcame homelessness and now they give back by teaching others how to help the homeless, and teaching the homeless how to help themselves.
This training covers both sides of the organization's heart in ministry and humanitarianism. You will learn what Glory Soldiers believe, and how they function as an organization.
The training will last approximately eight hours, and is mandatory for anyone to participate in volunteer opportunities with the organization. This training is open to the public, including individual and church groups.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Can I come with a guest?
Absolutely. We ask that you give us a call if you are the leader of a college program or outreach/church group who desires to partner with Glory Soldiers Global. We'd like to make sure that we discuss with leadership how to collaborate with you on your outreach work.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
We do encourage all volunteers to be proactive in their giving to the homeless. You are welcome to bring a donation that would be great for our community housewarming parties for formerly homeless people who have just received housing in the last 90-120 days. Since this is taking place in Killeen, Texas we encourage gift cards that can be put into the donations for clients.
How is the training set up?
Our volunteer training is traditionally taught by Ressurrection Graves, and often accompanied by members of the board of directors, and/or existing volunteers. You may receive a hand out or two, but are encouraged to bring materials to take notes with.
We are very hands on, and interactive. You'll know most people in the room within the first ten minutes. This is a beautiful experience even for the most introverted person.
Is parking available?
Parking is above ground and available at the hotel for free.
Will there be refreshments?
Breakfast is available at the hotel from 6am to 10am at the hotel.
Can I bring my children?
Many people ask this question. Children are NOT allowed at the volunteer training. It is structured for adult learning. Children may attend outreach events if they are well behaved, with their parents, and NEVER left unattended.
