Welcome to the Ambassadors of Charity Program

Thank you for your interest in this new venture. How can you help?

Ambassadors of Charity assist the John Michael Talbot Ministry and Brothers and Sisters of Charity through personal action.
They are the hands, feet, and voices of our community and ministry.
