DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — This week, nearly 2,000 teens from more than 50 area churches have come together with Wired Ministries to volunteer their time to help with various projects in the community.
Nate Cooper is just one of roughly 400 people who have been assigned to assist with the Dothan City Schools consolidation project.
Cooper said he agreed to help out not only this week but all summer long.
“We’ve really been preparing for this week, and we know the importance and how much it helps us to rely on all of these churches and all of these kids,” Cooper said.
“The main thing about this is it’s not about moving furniture,” said Wally Roper, DCS Consolidation Project Manager, WIRED Ministries. “It’s about children that come that we can show the love of Christ to and talk about Jesus to these kids. That’s first priority. The second is how can we be medicine as a church to the community.”
Wired Ministries has been in existence here in the Wiregrass since 2008.
