2021 Gobble Jog

Volunteer for the 2021 Gobble Jog

For 50 years, MUST has established itself as a servant leader caring for those in need in the Marietta, Smyrna and Canton/Cherokee county communities. Founded in 1971 by the Rev. Wayne Williams, MUST Ministries' initial programs included a grocery bus ministry for the elderly, a youth tutoring program and outreach ministries to "alienated" young people. Since its inception, MUST has fulfilled Wayne's vision of connecting people who have desire to help with those who need help most. Today, MUST encompasses more than 10,000 volunteers who are continually helping MUST Ministries achieve its goal of being Georgia's most respected servant-leader.
