Our Ministry Teams
We believe there is a reason Jesus sent out the disciples in teams of two. We were meant to do ministry together. Teamwork makes the Dreamwork! We believe the Lord wants us to ask him to send volunteers to do the work of ministry. Read more about it from Luke's Gospel.
Every organized ministry or project or event is assigned to one of the Ministry Teams below.
Contact one of these ministry leaders with questions or to find out how when and where you can volunteer to serve.
