Ministry Partner Opportunities 

Reaching people for Christ is what we are all about; that is why serving is so important. As a community of believers, we desire to not only know God, but to make Him known. This happens almost naturally as we serve the Lord and His creation. As we serve, we grow closer to God and, Lord willing, those we serve will grow closer to Jesus as well!

So, do you enjoy working with children? Do you find painting or building projects to be fun? Do you love being hospitable? Do you desire to see students follow Christ? Want to have a positive influence on others? These are just a few opportunities at Crosswinds where you could play a greater role in Crosswinds’ mission to know God and make Him known. Below are areas in the church where you could get plugged in. Check out the areas that interest you most, pray, and then follow the next steps to get you closer to serving here!

If you have questions on any particular ministry and its opportunities, please ask away through the Contact Form below! 

CELEBRATE RECOVERY

Friday Night Child Care

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery group that meets every Friday evening. This ministry focuses on adults, 18 years and older. We know, however, that hurts, habits, and hang-ups have an effect on the whole family. Often, single parents and couples are unable to attend due to lack of childcare. Our hope and prayer is to offer childcare on Friday nights from 6:30pm to 9:00pm, but we need your help! Are you interested in participating once a month to share the hope of Jesus with children while their parents seek healing and wholeness through Jesus at Celebrate Recovery?

COMMUNITY LIFE

Small Groups

We want everyone to have the opportunity to experience the blessing of being connected in a small group. We have small groups all throughout our region but we’re always looking for new leaders and hosts to start new ones.

A Small Group Leader facilitates discussion, guides the group gatherings throughout the year, and is the point person between the group and Community Life Pastor. A Small Group Host opens up their home for a small group and provides a safe, clean environment for the weekly small group gathering.

Connections Team

If you enjoy meeting new people and would like the chance to serve our guests that worship at Crosswinds each weekend, the Connections Team may be a good fit for you. You can serve as an Usher, Greeter, Prayer Partner, or Crosswinds Central Host. Each position is unique and offers different ways to show God’s love and hospitality to all of our guests.

Sharing & Caring Ministries

Would you like the opportunity to care for those who are in the midst of difficult circumstances in life? Our Sharing & Caring ministry is made up of a variety of different teams and has several serving opportunities available. Our Prayer Team gathers at the church weekly to pray for all the prayer requests that get submitted by members of our Crosswinds family. Our Barnabas Team writes encouraging cards and notes to those in need of an uplifting word of support and love. And our Visitation Team calls and visits those in our church family who are shut-ins, in the hospital, recovering from illness at home, or in hospice care.

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

FamX Clubhouse Characters

Do you have the gift of creative communication? Do you love the idea of helping families learn Biblical truths together through laughter and drama? If so, you should know we are looking for a few people to join our team of FamX characters. Each month at the FamX service our cast of clubhouse characters put on a sketch in order to bring life application to the Biblical truth that is being taught. This commitment is for the first Sunday of every month from October – June (summers off), with a weeknight rehearsal prior to the service. Time will also be needed to memorize lines prior to FamX Sunday.

Help Needed in Uptown’s Baby Boulevard

We are in need of a couple of people to care for the babies in Uptown’s Baby Boulevard during the 11:00am service once a month. If you have a desire to help support our families with young children here at Crosswinds by loving and keeping their children safe, then this is a great fit for you.

Weekly Ministry Partners

Do you love and follow Jesus? Do you want to make His name known passionately and specifically to middle and high school students? Every week we meet with middle and high school students from all over the community to encourage and motivate them to grow closer to the Lord. On Wednesday evenings are when we take advantage of a high energy 2-hour program. So if you like to cook, barista, throw a football, engage in meaningful conversation, run tech, run around, write letters, design, edit video, etc. then we have opportunities for you!

CAMPUS CARE

Overview

Campus Management oversees the facility and grounds of Crosswinds. We desire to honor the Lord through the excellent care of all that He has provided, and believe it may be a testimony to those exploring faith when they see that we are generous with our time and talents as we help create a beautiful, functional, and safe environment. We invite you to join us and trust that as you pour yourself into serving the Lord, that He in turn will bless you in innumerable ways! Feel free to invite a family member, friend, or small group to serve with you. We have the following 7 teams to consider:

Chair Team

The Chair Team sets up the chairs in the Ministry Center on Saturdays at 8:30 and is actually made up of 5 rotating teams. Teams 1 – 4 each serve one weekend every month and Team 5 serves 4 times a year on the months that have a fifth Saturday. The set up usually takes about an hour.

Landscaping Team

The Landscaping Team is made up of individuals, families, and small groups who “adopt” one or more of our 38 landscaping beds around the church and spend about 30 minutes a month weeding, picking up trash, and edging. 4-6 times a year we have team workdays to care for other aspects of the landscaping like spreading mulch and caring for orphan beds. Refreshments are provided on these workdays.

Maintenance Team

The Maintenance Team helps with the maintenance of the campus that is not covered by the other Campus Management teams. This includes electrical, plumbing, construction, renovation, and mechanical repairs. Though we sometimes have projects that we can all work on together, the jobs often only require one person at a time who will serve at a time that is convenient to them and the church.

Painting Team

The Painting Team takes care of the painting needs of the church. This also includes preparing the walls for paint, which will require some spackling and sanding. Though there will occasionally be projects that the whole team can work on together, the jobs often only require one person at a time who will serve at a time that is convenient to them and the church.

Safety Team

The Safety Team is currently being developed. It will help ensure that our campus is as safe as possible when there are large gatherings on the campus. We will be looking for people who are calm under pressure, observant, able to pray with people, bold, and brave.

Snow Removal Team

The Snow Removal Team is made up people who are willing to serve one or two weekends a year and be responsible to clear the sidewalks and entries of snow before, during, and after all three services on Saturday and Sunday. This will include snow shoveling and possibly spreading salt.

Window Team

The Window Team members will serve individually by cleaning main windows and doors on one weekend a month and then serving together twice a year to clean all the windows in the church.
