Nightclub Guardian Angels

Lost Sheep Ministry Volunteer NGAEach Friday night (Saturday Morning) in Knoxville’s Old City, Lost Sheep volunteers intervene to help young people for whom a “good time” has gone too far. Between 12:00 to 3:00 am, volunteers offer a safe place, food, prayer, and an opportunity to sober up before driving home. If needed, a call to a friend or family member, or a taxi cab, gets them safely home.  In case of emergency, volunteers are alert to call an ambulance, when an overdose of alcohol or drugs is involved. This event takes place between the months of April – October.

  • Mature and committed volunteers needed to help facilitate program. Must be physically able to volunteer late nights.
  • Must be 18 years old or older to participate
