What is a Serve Team? A Serve Team is a group of people who have discovered their God-given talents and giftings and are actively serving in them. From creating a welcoming environment by serving on a Hospitality Team, to leading the next generation to Jesus by serving on a Children's Ministry Team, to creating a dynamic worship experience with the Worship Team, we are a group that actively seeks to advance the Kingdom of God.
