STAFF TEAM


  • YOU

    MINISTER

    We believe God gives everyone a calling and purpose and you can make an impact. This comes from a very old idea called "the priesthood of all believers" which views Christian ministry as God's people serving in the world with our entire lives - through our jobs, as moms and dads, as neighbors, as servants and through God's church. When you use your talents and passions to serve you make an impact on God's mission. Many participants in our ministry dedicate significant time and energy to enrich and expand our ministry. To explore areas where you are gifted and tell us where you'd like to serve, check out our Serve page.
