Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Ephesians 4: 15-16 (ESV)
There's lots of super awesome people that make up our team. We couldn't do it without all these staff and volunteers (plus the many other volunteers who help us out so often). Thank you all!
