What to Expect as a Volunteer

Every role at James River is different. That’s what makes volunteering worth it! You can operate in the area where you feel most gifted or interested. You can always expect there to be a process in place to equip and train you, as well as a designated leader who can answer all of your questions.

Take the First Step to Becoming a Volunteer

Connection Class is a short training for all volunteers that will better equip you to serve where you feel called. Whether it’s childcare, hosting, production, mentoring or leadership, you won’t regret getting involved at James River and seeing God use you to change lives!

Looking For Even More Opportunities?

If you have already attended a connection class and are looking to get further involved, there are always more opportunities. Simply pick the area that interests you and contact the ministry coordinator for more information on the specific needs of that department.

How do I begin serving?

Taking the first step is the most important – this is done by signing up to attend the Connection Class. The Connection Class is offered at the South campus on the first and third Sunday of every month and at the West and North campuses on the second and fourth Sunday of every month. At the Connection Class, you will learn more about the history of the church, where the church is going, and our vision for serving the church through volunteer ministry opportunities! Stop by the Connect Center or a Guest Services booth this week to find out more or to sign up.

How do I find out what Volunteer Team opportunities are available?

Volunteer opportunities are limitless!! From hosting our guests each week as they arrive on our campus to serving at the café, to our children’s ministries and student ministries, there is a place for you. We can help you find the place where you feel comfortable and able to make the greatest impact!

What is the time commitment?

Each volunteer ministry team provides multiple opportunities to serve allowing you to find a time that works best for you. With four weekly services and several special events throughout the year, there is definitely a ministry opportunity that will work for you.
