The success of Stronghold's ministry on behalf of the Churches of Blackhawk Presbytery depends on people like you.

Since its inception, Stronghold has been blessed with the hard work and dedication of its volunteers. Stronghold's ministry has grown significantly since those early years. Thousands of guests use the grounds and attend our programs every year. Meeting the needs of all of these people has become more complex and time consuming. Volunteers who are willing to share their time and talent help us to provide cost effective, quality service to our guests.

Help us continue to grow and share Stronghold's unique hospitality by becoming a volunteer today! You can volunteer as an individual, or as part of a group.
