God intended for all of us to make a difference in the lives of others. He made us unique and wants to use every single one of us! We believe that God has chosen the local church as His instrument to reach the world. If we truly want to make a difference, we need to find a place to serve in our local church.
Through Next Steps we help you to find a place to serve on what we call the Dream Team, a place that fits the way God has created you. We call this your ‘sweet spot’. Here is an overview of where you could start serving in Thousand Hills:
Use your skills in accounting, organization, bookkeeping, database maintenance, administration and all-round office support to help Thousand Hills to function smoothly.
Audio, Video & Creative Arts
Use your multi-media skills to communicate God’s faithfulness and power in many ways, contributing to a great church experience! Use or develop your skills as a camera operator, sound technician, video producer, light technician, or use your basic computer skills to contribute to a great church experience!
BHV / First Responders
Safety first! This team serves to respond to health or first aid situations in the event of an accident or emergency.
This team of experienced and enthusiastic Christians provide help and care for those in need by listening, praying and encouraging them through the guidance and strength of the Holy Spirit, enabling hurting people to attain freedom in Christ and leave their past behind. [Members of our Church Care team are carefully selected by the leaders of this team and thoroughly trained.]
Thousand Hills is also reaching out to those who are not able to come to the church, those who are curious about our church and those watching the message at an off-site location. Join the Church Online team and provide a full service experience to those who are part of our church on a distance.
Cleaning & Maintenance
This team is essential to making sure our church building is clean, ready to be used and warm and welcoming.
Communication & Website
Use your language, communication, web or design skills to communicate the message of Thousand Hills both internally and externally. You can also help prepare some of the communication materials like booklets and the bulletins.
Connect Group Leadership
We believe that real life change takes place in the context of relationships! As a Connect Group leader, you have a great opportunity to connect with others, and grow in your relationship with God together. There are many different Connect Groups with different purposes, such as mission, Bible study or prayer, courses such as a parenting course or marriage course, women’s groups, men’s groups, youth groups and groups that gather around a social activity.
Help organize church-wide events, conferences, concerts and outreach activities!
You can use your IT skills and gifts to serve God and his church by developing and maintaining the IT infrastructure needed for the computers, server, network and other systems.
This team makes sure that everyone who walks through our doors feels welcome in God’s house. One smile can make a huge difference! The Hospitality Team takes care of the welcome, picking up the offering, preparing Communion, handing out bulletins, connecting with newcomers and serving a great cup of coffee.
The Bible teaches us that some people have the “gift of giving”. The Legacy Team is a group of men and women that feel called by God to give over and above their tithes. They help to communicate the vision behind the funds, advice on how to raise funds and challenge people to serve God with their finances.
Thousand Hills Kids
Thousand Hills is a church for young and old and what happens in Kids Church is just as important as what happens in the auditorium! This team creates an environment where children are taught about the love of Jesus. Through worship, videos, skits, small groups, greeting, games and more, this team intentionally invests in the lives of our children.
Translation team members use their skills for translating material for the sermons, bulletins, website, flyers and other means of communication from English to Dutch. In addition, they provide live translation from the podium during the services and other events.
Using your musical skills to worship God and leading people into a real encounter with the living God is the greatest privilege any musician or singer will ever have! The Thousand Hills Worship team is ever expanding and open to auditions.
