God has given each of us a spiritual gifts to help grow His Kingdom. Whether you're great with kids or you have a musical talent, Encounter has a place for you to serve. Look through our teams and see where your talent lies – there's a form at the bottom of the page when you're ready to help out.
Guest Services / Security Team
Remember that warm greeting when you first arrived at Encounter? We want everyone to feel welcome from the moment they arrive in the parking lot and that's where our fantastic Guest Services Team shines! Whether you're making the coffee before our guests arrives, greeting them at the door, handing them a bulletin or helping them sign their kids into family ministry, if you're a "people person," we've got a spot for you. Each week, there's a dedicated group of Security Team members in our hallways, watching over us while we worship and keeping an eye on our kids in Family Ministry. There are clearances required for this team.
At Encounter we want to make your worship experience as special as possible. Of course, our musicians lead us each and every week, but we also have a behind-the-scenes team. If you have a heart for technical things – lights, video, computers; or a visual eye for stage design, we’ve got a place for you.
Set Up / Tear Down
Each week at Encounter starts with a box. Several boxes, really. Our Set Up and Tear Down Team takes the content of those boxes and builds a church from scratch every week. Family Ministry, our Worship Center, the Worship Team, and our Guest Services all rely on the dedicated volunteers either arriving a little early or staying a little late to build the Kingdom of God in a middle school.
Each week our Family Ministry folks create a high-energy, hands-on enlightening environment where your kids get to know and love Jesus. There are teachers in our pre-school and elementary levels, and we've always got room for more caregivers in the nursery. You'll also have the opportunity to welcome the little ones in the registration area.
Office and Ministry Support
Church is more than Sunday mornings in our Worship Center. Throughout the week, Encounter staff is not only preparing for Sunday mornings, but working to reach out to the community. If it’s difficult for you to serve on Sunday morning, we’ve got a place for you Monday through Friday. And the needs are as wide-ranging as your talents. We are always looking for team members for small construction projects, writing/communication, help with the website and computer technical support. Our Prayer Team and Care Team also welcome new members with a heart for serving others directly.
