"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve..."

Mark 10:45

At Harrisburg Baptist Church, we believe service is one of the ways people connect to Jesus Christ.
We also believe that we, as followers of Christ, are called to be servants on mission
as we give our time and resources—in the church, in our city, and around the world.

Volunteer FAQ

do i have to be a member to serve?

Yes. We don't expect anyone who hasn't joined our faith family to serve within our faith family. Much like giving financially, we want our guests to feel welcomed and loved without feeling the burden of contributing to a family they haven't joined. If you are interested in serving here, then we are hoping that means the Lord may be moving you to join our church!

how do I know where to serve?

Maybe you don't know what your spiritual gifts are. Or maybe you've never been affirmed in a particular area of service within the church. That's okay. We would love to come alongside you as you seek to discover your gifts and use them in ministry. Simply fill out this interest form and check the ministry areas that interest you. Once you get plugged in, we'll help you discern where you fit best!

can i contact a specific ministry leader?

Absolutely! Our staff team would love to talk with you about your gifts and ministry experience, even if you're unsure about those things. We would also be happy to provide you with whatever information you need to feel as confident as possible about serving in a particular area. Visit our staff page to see who leads what, then reach out with an email! You're also more than welcome to give our church office a call: 662.842.6917
