Standing Ministry Teams
As a volunteer member of a Ministry Team, you may be involved with a standing team, or participate on a project basis; for example, in a mission experience or help with the Fall Festival. Except for Trustees and Staff-Parish Relations, you do not have to be a member of the church to be on a team.
