Ministry Teams 2015

Ministry teams at JCA are a place where you can join the ministry that happens at our church week in and week out. One of the best ways to build relationships and personalize a church is through serving. There are currently 8 different ministry teams at JCA. If you are interested in joining a team, please contact the ministry team head listed.

 

JCA Praise

Vision - Why does this team exist?

The worship team exists to develop and mature Christian musicians and servants to use their giftings and availability as an avenue to a more holistic understanding and experience of worship.

Expectations - What is involved in being on this ministry team?

Members are asked to have a consistent attendance at most major congregational meetings. Members are required to come punctually to help prepare as well as assist in the break down of equipment afterwards. Additional service may be required when the church requires any sound system assistance.

JCA Hospitality

Vision - Why does this team exist?

Our goal is to embody the nature of Christ through being hospitable inside and outside the church. This is expressed in the church through the preparation of refreshments to facilitate a comfortable environment for fellowship, done in faith that love poured into preparing and offering a little food will help foster a closer and stronger community. We hope to display a wholehearted surrender and love for our Lord and His people that will encourage others to show hospitality in the everyday. Hospitality must reach beyond the church and could involve intentional community outreach in addition to continually maintaining a willingness and mindset to serve with one's time, home, and life without the expectation of something in return, because those resources are not truly ours. Our God has provided us everything, with which we serve and glorify His name.

Expectations - What is involved in being on this ministry team?

- A heart of welcoming people

- A heart of giving faithfully to the Lord

- A desire to grow in discipleship and see others grow

JCA Shekinah

Vision - Why does this team exist?

Shekinah is the feminine Hebrew word for God's glory. It refers to the dwelling or settling of the divine presence of God and His glory as a physical station (i.e. the pillar of cloud leading the Israelites in the desert).

Expectations - What is involved in being on this ministry team?

At JCA, we understand that being a Godly woman in the real world can be tricky to navigate alone. To help cushion the blow, we believe that God provides wisdom and support through other like-minded women. Shekinah provides opportunities to encourage our women by:

- Creating a space for deeper relationships and accountability (i.e. mentorship groups)

- Strengthening and equpping JCA women through teaching seminars and panel discussions

- Gathering together monthly to lift up the needs of our women through corporate prayer

- Spending purposeful time with one another through events including our annual Mocktail and Speed Dating nights and seasonal young adult brunches.
