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.
Do you have a musical gift or a voice you want to use to lead others in worship? This is the place for you. We have an outstanding team at Encounter that inspires our congregation weekly and this is an amazing opportunity to be a big part of what God is doing here.
Our worship experience isn’t just the people on stage. We have a crew dedicated to lighting, technology, cameras and a visual eye for the stage design. If this sounds like you, we need you!
Set Up / Tear Down
Each week at Encounter starts with a box. Several boxes, really. We are a mobile church requiring a full set-up and tear-down each week. You don’t have to know what you are doing. We will teach you. What you need to have is a willing heart and the physical ability to lift objects and position items. This is always an area we need extra hands in, so if you are up in the air on serving positions, this should be top of your list.
Not able to serve on a Sunday? That’s OK! We have a prayer team that gets our confidential prayer requests to pray over each week. We also have a care team of card writers, hospital visitors, meal makers and more. This is how we are the hands and feet of God outside of Sunday services. Let us know if this sounds like you.
At Encounter we partner with families to bless the next generation with bold and strong faith. Each week our Family Ministry team creates a high-energy, hands-on enlightening environment where our kids get to know and love Jesus. We always have room for teachers in our pre-school and elementary levels and caregivers in the nursery. You'll also have the opportunity to welcome the little ones in the registration area. If you have a gift of communication, patience, fun or hugs and snuggles, this is the place for you.
Small Construction/Special Events
This level of commitment to serving is on an as-needed basis. It could be building a stage set, repairing a door at the church office, setting up for a special service, etc. You would be placed on an email list to be contacted when such needs arise and they do arise. We appreciate anyone willing to do the odd jobs of church life.
Office and Ministry Support
While we do have members on staff who do the majority of the office work, there are those times of year when there is a lot of extra cutting, sorting organizing and other tasks to be done. If you have availability during weekday hours and would like to serve in this way, we would love to have your help. Coffee and laughs will be provided.
