“CAM provides the indigent in our area with a place they can come to that is safe and offers fellowship and a sense of community. They are treated with dignity and respect, are given a hot lunch, food to take home and an opportunity to interact in a meaningful way with Stephen Ministers.”

“For the past 7+ years, I have been blessed to be a part of the CAM community. Becoming a Stephen Minister has enabled me to get to know both the clients and volunteers on a more personal level. Listening to them, praying with them and show the the love of Christ each time I am there.”
