Ministry Teams

For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

We believe that God has given each one of us gifts and talents so we can impact the lives of the people around us.  Ministry Teams are groups of people who work together utilizing their common gifts and interests to serve locally and globally.  There are a variety of different teams and roles on each team so you can find your place.

If you are new to serving, don't overthink what team to join.  We often find out what we are good at by trying new things so join a team and see how you like it. If you are looking to better align your gifts and passions with your serving role, take the Impact Course.

All our current ministry team roles are listed below.  After each position title is the minimum time commitment  expected for the position.  We require everyone who serves on a team to be a regular attender of West Ridge Church.  Please note that some teams/roles require membership or additional steps such as an application, audition, background check, or interview.
