Meet The Need is launching a partnership with the Luis Palau Association! Wherever Palau Festivals are being held, Meet The Need will team up with Palau to mobilize the church community and others to get involved in Season of Service and the Festivals themselves. Season of Service is the week prior to Palau Festivals where volunteers are mobilized to meet the physical needs in their community through strategic networks of local churches and business and civic leaders (http://www.seasonofservice.com/).
Of course, Meet The Need’s and Palau’s real heart goes beyond SOS and the Festivals. Our partnership is truly designed to help Palau leave a lasting legacy of service and unity among the Body of Christ long after the Palau Festivals are over. Using MTN, hundreds of churches and ministries will “join” the Meet The Need network. And thousands of church members and other volunteers will sign up for SOS and the Festival in each city. So by the time the Festivals are over, each city will be “connected” on a common “platform”, enabling them to work together to serve those in need for years after the Festivals. From that point on, members of local churches all over the city will be able to search on their churches’ web sites for opportunities to serve local ministries and families any day, all year long. The need never stops, so let’s make the “season of service” last forever!
