At Doxa Church we seek to glorify God not only by making disciples but by being disciples. In Matthew 5:14-16 Jesus tells us that we are the light of the world, and as lights, our service can actually point others to God’s glory! Service and outreach are an important part of what it means to be a disciple but getting connected to an outreach opportunity can often be a challenge. The desire for this page is to help you get connected to the ongoing ministries of people from our church who are already serving the community. Please use these contacts to find out if there is a way you can serve as a small group or as an individual.

Safe Refuge: Temporary Homes for Children
Contact: Josh Kozub joshkozub.SRCF@gmail.com
The unexpected loss of a job, mounting expenses, foreclosure or eviction, a serious accident or illness, domestic violence, substance abuse, and an uncertain economy can plunge a family into chaos. Safe Refuge for Children and Families (SRCF) offers a hope-filled option for struggling families, made possible by a unique community-church partnership by providing temporary homes for children until the family can be safely reunited.
Right now, Safe Refuge is in immediate need of more foster families; if you are interested in providing a safe space for a child in need, please email Josh Kozub.
The Placer County Jail Chaplaincy
Contact: Kristen Robustelli firstname.lastname@example.org 916-749-0275
The mission of the Placer County Jail Chaplaincy is to continue the ministry of Jesus in our jails by preaching the good news of salvation to the poor and proclaiming freedom to the captives; by bringing comfort and healing to the brokenhearted through prayer, encouragement and one-on-one counsel; by strengthening and equipping those who desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus by providing them with Bibles, devotionals, Christian books, and study tools; and by helping to provide them with future shelter and discipleship through our Re-Entry Program, in which we help the men and women in our jails to make connections with Christ-centered residential and transitional programs, where they can go upon release.
They are currently looking for more volunteer chaplains to join the team who are available on a weekly or a bi-weekly basis to conduct Bible Studies and to provide one-on-one prayer, encouragement, and counsel. The schedule is flexible, and we have openings at both our jails in Roseville and Auburn. Training is provided.
