Ministries

The word "ministry" means an activity by Christians to spread or express their faith. The ministries of the church are accomplished through the ministries of the people of the church. Serving in ministry is a Biblical mandate, all are welcomed to serve. Each ministry section will function according to the scriptures and the intent of the constitution, handbook and church policies. Non-members can serve in the ministries of the church; however, they cannot assume ministry leadership roles. We encourage every believer to serve the local church through ministry. Certain church ministries require applications, background checks, and interviews for the safety of the individual, our fellowship, and ministry.
