First Impressions

To embody the spirit of hospitality, joy and adventure in being part of a church community. As potentially the first person a guest may meet or interact with, it is important that members of this team be well informed and knowledgeable about services, church activities, and location of 415 rooms.

Media and Worship experience

To create a visually and sonically engaging atmosphere that supports the live worship, preaching and online experience. Participation on this team requires attentiveness to elements on the platform and in the congregation in order to properly make adjustments in the atmosphere to make for the best worship experience.


To provide a welcoming, hospitable environment for all who attend worship services. Ushers have a heart to come alongside to serve the church body, help welcome guests to their seat, open sections, keep an eye on doors, security, and help serve in offering.


The South Hill Campus was first birthed in the cafeteria of the Gerald R. Ford Academic Center, which is immediately south of 415 MLK. The Ford school needs Reading and Math tutors for kids who are performing under-grade level and are at risk of not being able to move up a grade. This is an opportunity to fill an important need of our community, while building relationships together.
