Meet the Team

 

Our core ministries include Host Ministry, Kids Life, Kinetic Worship, Life Groups and Student Ministry. We would be honored to have you join our team as one of our essential ministry volunteers. If you would like to serve in one of these areas, please let us know and we will get you connected! Those who serve with our church during the week and on Sunday mornings are a part of fulfilling our call to share the love of Christ around the world!

We have ministries to serve every person who comes through our doors! Our Kids Life ministry serves infants through elementary. Student Ministry serves middle and high school ages. Life Groups serve our adult members. Worship and Host Ministries are pillars of our Sunday morning experience, to help everyone feel at home and connect with God.
