I am intern with the Discipleship Year program, which means I have trouble choosing categories from the drop-down menu above. Am I a client served, or am I a volunteer? I think that this dilemma encapsulates the essence of Church of the Savior. All of us are receiving while we give, and all of us are giving while we receive.
