Leaders Needed For Admin Teams

Your church needs you to serve on an administrative committee to help Grace accomplish its ministry and mission. You can you lead Grace Church to be responsive to changing needs in the congregation so that, as a church, we can respond to needs in the community. 

This can be accomplished together: breaking down big jobs into smaller chunks, teaming up in leadership roles, fewer on-site meetings, and better use of technology. The face-to-face time is reserved for work that engages our spirit — like getting to know God and one another better, serving in ways that fill us, help others, and teach our children. You can help Grace Church as it continues to become a place where families and friendships grow. 

For more information on any of the listed openings, contact Pastor Cindy.
