    Instructions

    Our ministries are loosely divided into four categories:

    1. Body Life
    2. Education
    3. Operations
    4. Outreach

    By choosing a ministry area under these categories, you will be contacted by the ministry leader of that area to begin a conversation about how you can serve.

    There are several online tools to appraise your spiritual gifts. One you may want to try is ChurchGrowth.org.
