Jesus wants every person using their gifts – He taught that people who walk in His way are meant to use their unique gifts, passion, abilities, personality, and experiences in such a way that people will give God thanks for their service.
One gift is not more important than the other – they are just different. Whatever gift we have, we are encouraged to use it for the benefit of others.
Local church leadership exists to equip the church family – to accomplish God’s mission of restoration. It’s not a bunch of trained professionals doing everything in the church, but it’s about all the people of the church coming together to tell people about Jesus Christ and to serve the community in Jesus’ name and power.
Do I have to be a member to volunteer and serve?
Absolutely not. There are many different ways that you can be involved. Roles that require more responsibility and leadership do require training and success in areas of smaller (but equally important) responsibility. Mission Trails Church Leadership has the final say on who is in what role.
What does it mean for me to volunteer and serve?
You can try out different roles until you find one that suits you. We can help you discover and develop your gifting. Some skills you already
How do I choose what role I have?
Currently, we need help with setup, tear down, refreshments coordination, greeting, events, and more. You can sign up for different roles by contacting Jeremy at MV@missiontrailschurch.com or by phone at (619) 786-2682. Eventually, we will develop an online sign up form to stream line the process.
How do I know what will be a good fit for me? What if I don’t like what I’m doing?
You can always switch roles if you don’t like yours. Some roles require more training and responsibility, so Mission Trails Church leadership is ultimately responsible for who serves and in what capacity. We provide training opportunities so that we can help you uncover abilities that you didn’t realize you had.
