MNA Second Career

About the Ministry

A ministry matchmaker


Ready to serve but don’t know how? Let us help. Volunteers of all ages and in all stages of their careers and retirement can use their gifts and skills to further God’s Kingdom by serving a diversity of ministry needs. MNA SecondCareer matches PCA church plants, churches, and other PCA ministries that have limited resources and a need for skilled help, with volunteers who have the needed skills and time to contribute.




Our volunteers vary widely in age from 20 on up through retirement. Some are solidly in their first career but at the same time use their skills in a second career capacity for ministries in need. Other people are between jobs, at home, or of retirement age and have flexible schedules. Volunteers with recreational vehicles are discovering the joys of serving with our RV Ministry. One can make a difference and find significance by having a second career at any time serving God’s Kingdom.
