What are Serve Teams?
Our serve teams are made up of incredible people that have discovered their gifts and passions and are actively serving in them. From creating a comfortable environment by serving on a Guest Services Team, to leading the next generation to Jesus by serving on a Student or Kids Ministries Team, we have serving options for every personality, skill set, season and schedule.
