BY AVA CONLEY

It’s that time again! Can I just say I LOVE our volunteers! The Lord has brought so many different kinds of people to Common Ground Montgomery from different backgrounds who truly impact our students in so many different ways. It has really been a blessing to me to see God’s kingdom on earth in the way the volunteers love our kids. We are so lucky to have the greatest volunteers in the world! I would love to take the moment to highlight another one of the fabulous people that the Lord has brought to us! 

I wanted to take a moment and have Mr. Ben answer a few questions about his experiences at CGM.


Q: How long have you been volunteering with CGM?                                       

I've been volunteering for about a year.

Q: Why do you love coming to CGM?  

I love coming here because the kiddos are awesome and the programs are well organized.

Q: What is your favorite area to volunteer in?

Currently my favorite area is teaching.

Q: Who is your favorite staff person?                                                                        

My two favorite staffers are B.K. and Ava!

Q: How has volunteering at CGM impacted you?                                          

I’m more grounded and connected to the Lord’s work.

Q: What is one of the most impactful moments / conversations / interactions you’ve had while volunteering?                                                    

One of the kids in our class thanked me for being there and not losing my cool when they got crazy.

Q: Describe a funny story or interaction you’ve had with one of the kids.                             

A question in one of our studies was, "What would you do if you found out that you just inherited $1 million?'. One of the boys immediately jumped up and said, "$50’s and pizza night for all y’all!!!"


Thank you for all you do Mr. Ben! I know I can speak for all the staff and kids at CGM- We love you!
