Thank you for your interest in serving on a River of Life Ministry Team. Each week about 100 volunteers join together at River of Life to serve the Lord, each other and you. These teams are filled with amazing people and you would be a great addition!
Every team matters in the mission. There is no one position or person that is more or less important. All are equally necessary to the Church accomplishing its God given purpose.
RLA strives for excellence and safety in ministry. You will find that each team will have requisites and training unique to that ministry. However, anyone that serves in any capacity at RLA will complete the following 2 basic steps:
- Scroll down and read through the different team options
- Complete the Ministry Team Application located at the bottom of this page, indicating your team of interest.
We look forward to serving together in His Kingdom!
The RLA Band serves whenever there is a need for music in worship at the church. Main parts of the band include acoustic guitar, bass guitar, drums, electric guitar and piano. If you are skilled in any of these instruments and are ready to serve a lot, this is probably the team for you.
Each week RLA provides bus transportation for young people and children that want to come to church, but whose parents do not attend. If you love to drive and love kids this would be a great fit for you.
If you enjoy spending time with children and youth, and have a desire to see them serve Jesus for a lifetime this team may be the perfect fit for you. There are options to serve infants through college age young people.
Hospitality (ages 14 and up)
If sharing a smile, giving a warm welcome and serving people are things you love, this is the team for you! The Hospitality team includes: greeters, ushers, hosts and more.
Junior Hospitality (ages 6-13)
The RLA Jr. Hospitality team is a great place for kids that are outgoing or have a heart to make others feel welcome and loved. This team will help kids develop their service skills while giving them opportunities to minister to the church family at that same time.
We are called by the Father to be people of prayer: "Faith works by love..." Through the love of Christ, the fountain of prayer for others flows forth. We love and we pray as Jesus shows us. If you desire to be used specifically in the place of prayer, you've found your team.
Small Group Leaders/Teachers
RLA has opportunities for those who love to teach or facilitate adult groups. These groups focus on discipleship through supportive relationships among the members of the group.
If you are attentive, have a desire to learn "tech", and want to be used a lot, this is the team for you! The RLA Tech Team includes sound, computer, lighting and camera operators. This team is critical to the operation of services and events throughout the year.
The RLA Vocals serve whenever there is a need for music in worship at the church. Ability to hear and sing a part is very helpful. If you are skilled vocally and are ready to serve a lot, this is probably the team for you.
Church membership is a formal relationship between a local church and a Christian characterized by the church's affirmation and oversight of a Christian's discipleship and the Christian's submission to living out his or her discipleship in the care of the church.
