Roving Listeners in Greenville, SC is an outreach of Ekklesia Global, a faith community and 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
We are blessed when we meet these people and are inspired by them to give more of ourselves. One of these angels on earth is Tracey Mulvaney. If you haven’t met Tracey, put it on your bucket list!
Tracey, a founding member of Ekklesia and integral in its growth, felt led to bring more people together-people who might not normally cross paths-and to bring out each ones gifts and celebrate them. She now works diligently to define her ministry and its role in the form of Asset Based Community Development–using the gifts and talents already existing in a neighborhood to build it up and create positive change that benefits the whole community.
Ekklesia hopes you, too, will be inspired on your own path to God, and if you’d like to be a ROVING LISTENER, too, let us know.
