What is it?

Servolution is a culture that inspires to change a person’s life through simple acts of kindness for the glory of God.

“It’s a church revolution through serving,” said Matt Bourgeois.

The goals of Servolution

Our goal as Christians is to become more like Christ every day. We've got to get out in our communities and show people that we care and that there's a God who wants to heal them. Words can't always fix our pain. People may know that God loves them, but maybe they haven't ever experienced God's love for them in a practical way. We can be a testimony to others of what God can do in their life! When people see our genuine love for each other and others, they can't help but be drawn to it. A kind word goes a long way. You never know what someone may be going through. Handing them that bottle of water or a hot meal may be just what they need for God to soften their hearts and open their minds to hear about the truth.

Servolution is about serving together.
