Volunteer

The Foundry relies on the compassion of community partners to restore hope and reshape lives.  We offer many meaningful ways to come together in prayer, fun, fellowship and financial assistance to provide a foundation of support for our ministry.

Volunteer Interest Form

Volunteers help The Foundry serve more people, stretch precious resources and raise support for our life-changing ministry.  Your participation—as an individual or part of a group—shows your compassion and allows you to impact the lives of hurting people in very personal and meaningful ways.

Volunteer opportunities are available at both our Bessemer campus and Foundry Farm near Cullman unless otherwise noted.

All volunteer opportunities require a completed volunteer application.  Applicants must be in agreement with The Foundry Ministries’ Statement of Faith and Vision, be comfortable praying alongside others, have a servant’s heart and be 18 years or older (age restriction does not apply to youth groups or other youth organizations that have prior written consent).

For large group volunteer opportunities, email volunteer@localhost/foundry-live.
