Serve @ Verve

When people think about growing spiritually their minds often go straight to learning.  And it is true that knowledge is an important factor.  However, growing is also very much about doing, about how we live our lives.  And one of the most critical pieces is serving.  We serve for the sake of others, but the reality is that when we serve we benefit just as much.  Our hearts expand, our compassion grows, we see the needs of others, we find our giftedness.  That's part of the reason we encourage people to serve, both at Verve and in the community. And if you want to catalyze your relationship with God and your spiritual growth, you need to serve. 

From this page you can sign up for a First Serve in a variety of Verve volunteer roles. A First Serve gives you the opportunity to test drive a position without any obligation to continue serving there if you don't feel like it is a good fit. You can try a First Serve in as many areas as you want, so go crazy!

If you are willing to serve anywhere, let us know and we will make sure you end up in a volunteer position that you dig.

As a member of the Facilities Team you will:

  • Keep the floors, windows and bathrooms looking (and smelling!) fresh on a weekly basis
