NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 7, 2019 (Newswire.com) - The Church of Scientology Nashville held an awards presentation and open house for International Volunteer Recognition Day to acknowledge volunteers and encourage others to help people in times of need.
“Helping others is a virtue that should be recognized more often,” said Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Nashville Church. “The volunteers recognized for their work over the past year have shown exemplary volunteer spirit and are depended on whenever needed.”
A Volunteer Minister is a person who helps his fellow man on a volunteer basis by restoring purpose, truth and spiritual values to the lives of others.
