God calls His people to the incredible and exciting mission of witnessing in word and deed to the gospel of His love in His Son Jesus Christ to all nations, as well as to all of our neighbors. Through our Local Outreach Committee, Holy Trinity is committed as a church to seeking the good of our city, especially the poor and underserved, through our own ministries as well as through partnership with local likeminded ministries.



We encourage every member of our community to find at least one way they can put their faith to work and share the hope they have received (James 2:18). Our ministry partnerships provide opportunities that range from one-time projects to relational ministry, from hours a year to hours a week. Serve individually, as a group or as a family. Let God use your time, energy and resources to help change lives, and to help change you in the process!



Every year Holy Trinity Anglican Church gives away 10% percent of its operating budget through grants and gifts to help support the work of Christ-based ministries, both locally and globally. Inquiries regarding the grant request process for local ministry partnership can be sent to the Local Outreach Committee at

Jobs for Life (JfL) is a global nonprofit organization that engages and equips the local Church to address the impact of joblessness through the dignity of work.

Weekly: JfL classes usually meet twice per week over an 8-week time period. Class sessions last approximately two hours. Sites need mentors (called champions), one per student, who attend classes alongside their students. Instructors may teach all sessions or break the material up among a team of instructors. Volunteers may also provide administrative assistance, prayer support and fill other leadership roles, under the direction of an overall Site Leader (often a volunteer as well). Some sites offer meals and childcare, too.

JusticeMatters provides preventive and restorative legal services that protect children and help survivors of human trafficking and other traumas rebuild their lives. We also work for systemic solutions statewide, promoting just policies and practices through advocacy, training and leadership to address the roots and repercussions of human trafficking in North Carolina.



JusticeMatters is grateful for the many volunteers that have and are currently serving as part of the team. Due to the highly sensitive and confidential nature of our work, many volunteer positions necessitate specialized training.

We have an urgent, ongoing need for volunteer attorneys and law students, especially in the areas of humanitarian law, family law and other civil matters (such as landlord/tenant, consumer debt, housing/foreclosure, SSI/SSD, wills/estates).

In addition, we need volunteer interpreters, for numerous languages, with certain experience and expertise. With the opening of the Raleigh office, we currently have several volunteer needs including administrative support.

Please visit the “Get Involved” tab on our website or contact Charissa Gray at to discuss whether your gifts match our current needs.

At Oak City Academy, students love learning so much that they run to school. They are taught to be wise, virtuous and free, and believe every child, regardless of income, is created to flourish.

The goal is that 50% percent of the students come from the low-income community.

The Raleigh Rescue Mission 6-step “New Life” program is designed to provide a path to sustainable success for the marginalized in Raleigh. An important element of the New Life program is the 8-week Jobs for Life (JFL) class, and a very important part of the JFL class is having coaches/mentors that participate with the folks going through the class and develop relationships to help mentor them as they go through JFL and the New Life program.

The Rescue Mission needs additional coaches. The next JFL class begins on Mar. 24. The classes meet twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 8 weeks. There are 2 classes each Tuesday and Thursday (7-9 AM and 6-8 PM), if you have flexibility for one or the other of these time slots, this is a rewarding opportunity to serve.

So, what skills do you need to have – well, among other things, a Big Heart, reasonable communication skills, being a good listener, patience, being able to work with people from different backgrounds and a desire to serve.

If you can help, or if you have questions, there is a coach/mentor meeting at Raleigh Rescue Mission on March 10 at 7pm. If you’re interested in signing up, please call John Charlesworth 919-349-0719 or email him at

Refugee Hope Partners (RHP) is a ministry in Raleigh that exists to love our refugee neighbors with the hope of the gospel in partnership with the local church. The ministry began as a grassroots effort in 2007 when a group of Christians befriended and began serving newly arrived refugee families at Cedar Point Apartments in North Raleigh. Since then, the ministry has grown exponentially, partnering with over 20 churches in the area, organizing as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and gaining recognition as a trusted refugee care organization by resettlement agencies. Its cross-cultural ministry now reaches hundreds of families and refugees from people groups and nations throughout the world who have been resettled in Raleigh.

RHP loves its refugee neighbors by:

  • engaging families and individuals as they face cultural, practical and emotional hurdles in adjusting to life in a new country,
  • equipping hands, minds and souls for independence with dignity, and
  • encouraging healthy relationships and spiritual growth so that all may thrive.
