One of the best ways to find out how God has wired you to fulfill your purpose is by getting your hands dirty and actively serving Him in the context of the local church. We want to provide you with the opportunity to develop your gifts and talents and learn to use them for the glory of God and the expansion of His Kingdom.

If you’re into producing videos, we want to teach you what it looks like to make the best videos for the glory of God. Do you have a passion for leading worship? We want to put you alongside other great worship leaders and see what it looks like to take your talents to the next level. If you’re gifted in administration, we’ll give you opportunities to develop those skills. Maybe you’re great with kids, so we’ll give you the chance to serve alongside our kids team and invest in the next generation.

Along the way, we will teach you essential life skills, leadership, teamwork, and personal development. You will develop spiritually and grow relationally.
