Sounds Great, So What's the Next Step?

  1. You can take the spiritual gifts test if you aren’t sure what your spiritual gifts might be, then fill out the Service Interests Form above to help us learn more about what your passions and talents might be. Also, think about where the Lord might be calling you to serve and pray for Him to show you where you can make a difference. And lastly, consider your experience. Maybe you worked at or owned a landscaping company at some point in your life, or just love doing yardwork, therefore you might just be interested in helping the groundskeeping team.

  2. Once you’ve completed those three things above, reach out to find out more about where there there are needs in the church that you might be able to help serve in using a combination of your spiritual gifts, talents and passions, and we will work with you on finding the perfect place for you to be a part of building God’s Kingdom.

  3. We will provide you with some information on the opportunities that we have available relative to your strengths, passions, background, experience, and where you feel called, and we’ll put you in contact with the people that lead up those different ministries within the church, so you can get more detailed info about those teams or committees and get a better idea of what it looks like to serve in these positions.

  4. Once you’ve had a chance to talk with those team leaders, and you’ve found somewhere that you think you’d love to serve in, you’ll be given the opportunity to try that position out on a Sunday, Wednesday, or event, whatever that specific area may be, and get a better feel for that position. If it is an area of service you’d love to pursue, you’ll be added to that roster of volunteers and will be provided additional training before we turn you loose! Don’t worry, we will help make sure you’re prepared! :)
