We believe there is a place for EVERYONE & EVERYONE has a place. Find your place on one of our Volunteer/Ministry Teams.
Why Ministry Teams?
- Ministry Teams allow more people in our church to be involved in at least one minsitry that is based on their spiritual gifts.
- Ministry Teams allow people to get involved in ministry right away instead of waiting months/years to be enlisted.
- Ministry Teams allow people to prayerfully serve where their personality, spiritual gifts, abilities, passions, and life experiences lead them - by signing up to serve, instead of a committee enlisting them.
- Ministry Teams are a direct result of our vision statement and purpose.
Biblical Basis for Ministry Teams
In Acts 26:16, Jesus says, "Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant (minister) and as a witness of what you have seen of me and what I will show you."
As Chrisitans, the Holy Spirit has given us a least one spiritual gift, and in many cases more, to equip us to serve in His kingdom's work. Paul tell us in Romans 12:4-6 that "Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us."
As Jesus has appointed us to be His servants and equipped us with spiritual gifts to serve in particular areas of His kingdom's work, we are reminded by Paul in Colossians 3:23-24 to always be serving HIm in everything we do. "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receieve and inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
