Impact Opportunities

We believe God loves us so much that he did something about it – he sent his son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross.  As disciples of God, we’re instructed to have that same attitude of love.  In fact, the Bible says that if we love one another, all people will know we’re God followers.

Impact Opportunities is a way for students to learn what it means to “be the church” and put that love into action by serving in the church and in the community.  We believe there is no greater way to do that than by serving. 

If you are interested in serving the church we have various impact opportunities where you can serve.  Just click the title below of areas where you are interested in and fill out the quick form.  Or you can directly contact the ministry head for each area.
