UVCC believes everyone has been shaped by God to serve others in some way. We also believe every task done for God is important and pleases Him. When people serve in the way they are gifted they allow our church accomplish its mission of helping people come to know Christ so their lives can change for good. There is no unimportant task at UVCC and we simply couldn’t do all we do without the hundreds of people who serve each week.

Children & Teens: Helpers, Teachers and Group Leaders
We have been blessed with the opportunity to serve hundreds of Children & Teens here at UVCC and teach them about God and His way of living life. Teams of people serve each Sunday and throughout the week as helpers, teachers and group/event leaders. They serve in the nurseries, Adventureland, Sunshine Island, Time In-Between, Club 56 & on D-Crews just to name a few of the programs and events they help with. Most team members begin serving as helpers, guides and assistants – then over time they can become Bible teachers, worship leaders or event leaders as their giftedness and spiritual maturity is recognized by the pastoral staff. Everyone is required to undergo a background check and consistently attend UVCC for 3-6 months before joining one of these teams. To be part of the these teams please contact the staff member over that program or contact Paula Monnin at 937-778-8822 or email her at email@example.com.
Adults: LifeGroup Leaders & Apprentices, & Spiritual Formation Mentors
These teams include LifeGroup Leaders who oversee the group discussions, gatherings, mission projects and facilitate communication within the group. Apprentices help the leaders with all aspects of the LifeGroups and are preparing to lead a group in the future. Spiritual formation mentors lead one-on-one 8 week Bible studies and child dedication studies. These leaders are selected by the pastors based on the development of the giftedness over time and their growing relationship with Christ. To be part of any of these teams please contact Pastor Steve Marcum at 937-778-8822 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Praise & Music Team
Members on this team are selected by the Lead Pastor and our worship leaders to play instruments and sing on the platform during the two morning worship services or at special events. Tryouts are required and in many cases participation depends on the spiritual maturity the person displays over time and the gifting they have been given as evidenced by the pastoral staff. To be part of the praise and music team please contact Donny Widney at 937-214-2034 or email him at email@example.com.
If you have a gift or call that doesn’t fit one of these neat categories then maybe we can use you on “special teams”. Let us know how you are gifted and what you feel called to do and we’ll see how that might fit into what we are doing here at UVCC. To join our “special teams” contact Pastor Andy at 937-778-8822 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
