Get involved and make a difference here at MBC.
Jesus told us, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few” (Luke 10:2, NIV). At MBC, we believe every single follower of Jesus has been given a spiritual gift and should be equipped to serve in the body of Christ. (1 Cor 12:7) Your gifts are needed more than ever in this season of our church.
Invest in everything that makes our community possible.
We want to help you leverage your God-given abilities to make a difference and find fulfillment as we labor together in God’s harvest field. Check out these serving opportunities and click the “Join the Crew” link for more information about your particular area of interest.

As a caregiver, people will have the option to serve when a need arises.

If you are great with people and enjoy meeting and making others feel welcome, consider serving on the Welcome Team. Team members are the first contact our guests have with the people of MBC and, in some cases, the church as a whole. Members of this team serve either as greeters or ushers. Greeters are stationed at the entrances and ensure that all guests are extended a warm welcome to MBC. Ushers direct guests and engage newcomers in welcoming conversation. This team is the instrumental first step in presenting Christ, His church and His people in a positive and enriching way to everyone in attendance on Sunday.
