Ministry Teams

We encourage you to be the Church with us by serving the community on a Ministry Team. Below you will find descriptions of the Ministry Teams that make up Sojourn. Please reach out to the Team Leader if you would like to know more about how you could serve!


Community Groups

Vision & Mission - To come together to be formed as followers of Jesus. We are formed through: Study of God’s word, Prayer, Fellowship and living on God’s Mission together. If you want to grow as a follower of Jesus, if you want to get to know the people of Sojourn, involvement in a community group is the route to take.

Audio/Visual

Vision & Mission - To serve the church body by striving to seamlessly set-up and maintain quality sound with the purpose of preventing distraction during the Sunday worship service. This requires arriving early on Sunday mornings to get the sound equipment and powerpoint tested and set-up to allow the worship team time to practice before service starts.

Hosting

Vision & Mission - To assist in fostering the culture of Sunday gatherings of Sojourn Church into a welcoming and peaceful worship experience that quiets individuals minds and hearts to focus on God's word and to draw closer to Him. This requires coordination with each leadership team and fulfillment of logistical responsibilities of the host on duty to ensure that the Sunday gathering fulfills the mission and allows each leadership team and preaching elder to most effectively do their work.
