Connie Maxwell Children’s Home



One of the ways you can give is by giving of yourself

Both individuals and groups can volunteer.  The first step is to complete the online application. Give as much detail as possible as you complete the form. You may also indicate on the form which Connie Maxwell campus you would like to serve on.

After your application form has been submitted, an individual volunteer or one representative from each group will need to complete a background check.  The link to the form will be emailed to you by the Director of Church and Partner Services.

Dates, times and types of volunteer ministries will be worked out with the Director of Church and Partner Services.

If God is leading you to volunteer as part of the ministry of Connie Maxwell Children's Home begin the process with the on-line application form. If you need additional information you may contact Debbie McDowell at 864.942.1405 or email
