Having received so great a salvation, we are compelled to serve in obedience to God and in gratitude for his blessings. Every member of Hillcrest is asked to serve in at least one of the following capacities. If you would like additional information on serving opportunities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A vibrant children’s ministry is made possible by dedicated volunteers who serve the Lord through loving and leading our youngest attenders. Your service in this vital ministry area will help ensure that Hillcrest is a place where families thrive. Hillcrest Kids is staffed with volunteers who love children and are ready to be trained and prepared to meet the needs of the little ones entrusted to us. Whether you’ve been a long time nursery volunteer or are interested in becoming one now, we look forward to working together to create an excellent ministry to children!
In preparation for the guests we anticipate as God continues to work in our midst, our Guest Experience team is tasked with welcoming, greeting, directing and assisting visitors and members as they arrive. Your role on this team may make an eternal difference in someone’s life. Every person who steps or drives onto church property is precious to God. This team will serve to ensure that all who come our way sense their importance to The Lord and to all of us at Hillcrest!
Ensuring the safety and security of our members, guests and facilities is a priority of the leadership of Hillcrest. We are creating a team of individuals who will oversee zone security during each of our services and events.
Creating an atmosphere of reverence for our weekly services is facilitated through our choir, vocalists and instrumentalists. We consider these ministry members to be lead worshippers who establish an environment where our congregation and musicians praise the Lord together. As part of our effort to create a beautiful tapestry of intergenerational worship, we use hymns, both ancient and modern, psalms and spoken word.
Volunteers in this ministry are needed to mix sound and advance lyric slides or videos during our Sunday morning worship hour. If you have experience in this area or are interested in learning, please consider serving on our production team. Our goal for this team will be that those who have technological skills may enhance the weekend services by utilizing our audio and video technology to its maximum potential.
If we offer exceptional children’s programming, vibrant worship, solid teaching of the Bible and a welcoming environment but do not make fervent prayer a priority, we will have missed a most crucial aspect of our duty and privilege as a body of believers.
All of us should be regularly praying on behalf of Hillcrest. Some of us need to be devoted to scheduled and specific times of prayer for this church and God's kingdom work.
Members of this team will regularly pray as a group for direction, protection and vision for Hillcrest and for the community that surrounds our campus. You may feel as though you cannot offer much in the way of other ministries that are highlighted, but you can pray, so please consider joining this vital team!
HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF
Members and friends of Hillcrest may financially support the relief effort in Houston through the North American Mission Board (NAMB) simply by clicking here. This third-party link was provided directly from our regional director of the Metrolina Baptist Association and comes with assurance that 100% of the gift given will be used for the rebuilding effort in the wake of the destruction caused by Harvey. As more opportunities arise including food, clothing or other drives, planned trips to Houston, etc. we will update this page with the latest information. Thank you for prayerfully giving to those in need.
THE ABANDON PROJECT
Hillcrest is excited to announce a partnership with Josh Meadows and The Abandon Project. This ministry was founded with a singular hope: "That each kid would find a sense of identity and purpose through the love of our volunteers and mentors." Reaching out to children being raised in dysfunctional homes through sports, genuine relationships and training in maturation are all themes that run strong through the work The Abandon Project is doing. If you would like to support their ministry, find out how you can be involved or learn more, click here.
