In this episode, host Joe Brannen interviews Ceeja Malmkar, Pastoral Resident for Grace Communion Surrey Hills. Ceeja shares her insights and experience on how she seeks out resources outside of the local congregation to serve their church’s local community.
“We all want to belong to something… (through our events and fundraisers) People are active in the mission of Jesus, through relationship, and don’t even know it. They just know they want to be a part of a community, and a part of relationship. And it is a beautiful thing. People want to give, and give back, and they want to be asked.” – Ceeja Malmkar, Pastoral Resident for Grace Communion Surrey Hills
