MAGIS MOMENTS

Magis (pronounced “màh-gis”) is a Latin word that means “more.” It is related to Ad majorem Dei gloriam, a Latin phrase meaning “for the greater glory of God.” Magis refers to the philosophy of doing more, for Christ, and therefore doing more for others. Through our series entitled “Magis Moments,”  we are highlighting the people and programs, supported by our leadership donors, that go above and beyond to serve our community “for the greater glory of God.”


MEET MAGIS SOCIETY MEMBERS MAKING AN IMPACT
