Volunteer Your Heart & Hands

The House of the Carpenter is dedicated to making an investment in our community. We’d love to have you join us in our Missions of Mercy, Transformation, and Spiritual Formation!

Our ministries encompass neighbors in Wheeling and throughout the Upper Ohio Valley. And we don’t reach out to strangers. Instead, we’re in the business of helping our families and friends as they overcome various challenges.

Volunteering allows you to serve God’s children. You can be part of a team that ensures all are welcomed into a safe and grace-filled community.

Below are a few suggestions to volunteer or otherwise get involved in this work. If you have other gifts you would like to share with us, please call or contact today.

A simple and effective way to get involved is to pray! We have a prayer wall in our building with special prayer requests. And of course our staff and neighbors have general needs that could use your intercession.

We encourage you to volunteer by:

  • praying on your own,
  • with your faith community,
  • or in the community at large.
