Volunteer Services

Real ministry begins with serving others…

It takes several people working together to make each worship celebration happen at The River. Everyone from parking attendants, coffee shop volunteers, to worship production. All of these individuals work together to make your Sunday worship experience the most enjoyable experience ever. We would love to have you become a part of our awesome volunteer staff. If you are already a volunteer and interested in volunteering in another area of ministry, be sure to fill out our Add/Change Volunteer Ministry form online.
