We encourage everyone at Grace Baptist Church to find their place of service on a deacon or elder-led ministry team.
What is a Ministry Team?
Ministry Teams are groups of people, who through service, allow us to meet various needs that exist in the church and community.
How Do Ministry Teams Work?
- Team leaders are accountable to a deacon or elder.
- Team members are guided by the team leader to carry out a specific purpose.
- Teams regularly share their activities with the church.
