Each one should use whatever gifts he has received to serve others,
faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.
– 1 Peter 4:10
God has called us to serve Him by serving others. Serving can be in various forms – spending time with kids, working as a greeter, or even just delivering a meal to someone in need. Serving doesn’t have to be hard. If we do all things with love, serving others is a joyful experience. Many people can find their purpose and develop their spiritual gifts through serving. Not only can it deepen our relationship with God but with other members of our community as well.

The Lord is on the move in children’s ministry! We have seen the attendance numbers double since January 2021. We are in need of more volunteers to help us reach our goals, specifically in the toddler and preschool rooms. Radiant Church is dedicated to making disciples – what better way to do that than by ministering to children and families! Radiant’s Children Ministry is always looking for volunteers in various roles as well. Kid’s Church only meet every second and fourth Sundays of each month for the second service, but we have baby, toddler, and preschool rooms open every week.

Sound, livestream, photography, and slides are all part of the tech team that helps our Sunday services run smoothly. If you are savvy with computers, good with cameras, or have a good ear for sound and music, serving in the tech team would suit your skills. Even if you have little to no experience in using a sound board or livestream equipment but you’re interested in being trained up into the role, feel free to reach out to us. Here are our different tech team role descriptions:
The sound person is in charge of the sound. That includes the equipment, atmospheric additions, such as music pads, pre and post service playlists, and mixing sound for worship. You will communicate with the worship leader to accommodate the technical needs of the worship team during the weekend you are serving.
The slides person will use ProPresenter to put relevant slides up during our Sunday services. ProPresenter is an easy program to learn and if you are are thinking about helping us do slides, we will have you shadow one of our current slides person on a Sunday so you know how it all works. You will only need to serve once every month.
The livestream operator will run our livestream system which includes controlling and switching cameras to produce a smooth video stream for our online viewing audience. This is suitable for people who have a good eye for video and camera angles. Training will be provided if you have no experience running livestream.
