Are you feeling led to get more involved with BCAY? Then joining one of our volunteer ministry teams is a great first step! It takes more than just five or six people on a core leadership team to grow an organization; it takes quality people like you getting involved at every level.
We have a motto on our core leadership team: DON’T DO IT ALONE. What does that mean? True leaders lead people. Powerful things happen when people share their skills and collaborate. Our core leaders are waiting to share the vision with you and empower you to make it happen. That’s why we affectionately refer to our volunteer teams as dream teams. You will help make the dreams of the ministry come true.
The Serve the Nations Team
Jesus was a servant leader and we will be a servant people (Luke 22:24-27). We aspire not only to serve inside the church with excellence, but to minister in the marketplace. This church will produce future problem solvers for the greatest global challenges, thus becoming the salt and light of the world. (Matthew 5:13:16; Matthew 28:18-20)
- Purpose: To equip the BCAY family to follow Christ in servant leadership, thus becoming salt and light in the world

Ways to get involved:

Do you want a hug?
Our ministry and team loves giving hugs and greeting people. If you love smiling and giving hugs too, join us in the morning as we welcome people to BCAY.
Need a seat?
Our ministry is also over ushers and these individuals help us locate seats for people arriving to BCAY. It’s a small job, but greatly appreciated by all.
Our ministry has a small level of commitment. We set up every day at 9:00am and are mostly active on Sunday. The only time we have outside meetings is when we have a huge event coming up on a Sunday.
