Working in team is something that has a possibility to achieve something that is bigger then yourself.

When Jesus finished preaching he said to Peter “Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish. ”(Luke 5:4). Now if we want to go deeper we need a team. You can only go so far and only catch so many fish by yourself. Everyone is exceptionally unique yet each one is called to be one body. We invite you to pray, be connected, get involved wherever you are.
