Local and Community Ministries

Go Serve

Love God. Serve Others.

Global Outreach at Cedarville equips you for lifelong leadership and service through partnerships with local churches, community organizations, and missions. These volunteer ministry opportunities provide a context where you’ll apply what you learn in chapel and the classroom and make a powerful impact for Christ as you meet real needs in our surrounding communities and the world. You will have the opportunity to serve locally through weekly volunteer ministry teams or through short-term mission trips.

All Cedarville students are expected to maintain the spiritual discipline of attending weekly corporate worship at a local church.  We also seek to encourage students to take the next step and get involved in serving at their local church.  The local church ministry teams listed on this website provide you with the opportunity to serve local churches through Awana, children's ministries, nursery, Sunday school, youth, or worship ministries.

The communities surrounding Cedarville contain hospitals, detention centers, faith-based ministries, and many other types of organizations with volunteer needs which may be met by Cedarville students who desire to serve.  The community outreach teams listed on this website provide you with the opportunity to serve in a variety of areas which may relate to your area of study, personal interests, talents or experience.  Check out the wide variety of local ministry teams which are grouped according to the following categories:
