These are the words to the Casting Crowns Song, Does Anybody Hear Her and this song is the theme song for the Lady Bugg House. We see her. We see past the scarlet letter that society can sometimes put on young single mothers. Just like Jesus did with the women at the well we want to extend the love of the Father to these precious young ladies, their children and the fathers. We see her as the Father sees her. If you see her too and are passionate about Jesus than we would love for you to join us in serving in this ministry to bring the LOVE OF JESUS to young mothers and their children.
The success of the Lady Bugg House ministry is dependent upon volunteers who are willing to invest their time and talents in a ministry that is committed to bringing the love of Jesus to pregnant and parenting teens. We are looking for people whose passion is Jesus and whose heart is broken for young moms and dads.
The foundation of our program is mentoring young mothers as they grow in their relationship with the Lord. We accomplish this not only through training but also through modeling godly character. Therefore, we are seeking volunteers who have made a commitment to Christ and are dedicated to the pursuit of knowing and doing the will of our Heavenly Father. It is essential that our volunteers are cultivating the spiritual disciplines in their own lives and demonstrating this by personal example so that our moms and dads may see by word and action what a transformed and vibrant walk with Jesus truly looks like. 2 Corinthians 3:18
Our priority is ensuring the safety of everyone we serve. Therefore, we have strict policies in place in regards to volunteers for the Lady Bugg House, Inc. The Volunteer Application is required to begin the process to be a volunteer for the Lady Bugg House. We require references and a back ground check for all our volunteers having direct contact with those in our program.
