No person can plant a church alone.  It takes a team of diverse yet like-minded people united by a common vision.  We call these specific people for our ministry our “Launch Team.”  Perhaps you would like to join our launch team.  Start by asking yourself a few simple questions:

  1. Do I want to make a difference in the lives of others and do something that matters for Christ?

  2. Do I sense God telling me to help launch this church?

  3. Do I want to help better my community?

  4. Do I feel a connection with Pastors Mark & Sherry Pickett?

  5. Do I agree with the vision, mission, and values of this new church?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, please keep reading.

What Is The Launch Team?

Specifically, our launch team are the volunteers that serve alongside our lead pastor in the early stages of planting our new church.  Some will serve temporarily and others will become long-term members.  In fact, many launch team members are not with the new church after the first year.  You can serve on our launch team temporarily even if you are a member of another church after getting the approval of your pastor.

Who Can Become A Member of The Launch Team?

Ideally, launch team members are authentic Christ followers.  Nevertheless, no special qualifications are needed to join our launch team except one must:

  1. Love and want to help people

  2. Agree with our church vision

  3. Be willing to serve

  4. Be able to volunteer time weekly

What Areas Will Launch Team Members Serve?

Initially, launch team members will simply help with getting the church started.  For example, they may help with community outreach, social media marketing, passing out flyers, and so on.  If they continue serving after our launch service, they may serve in the following positions:

  1. Greeter

  2. Usher

  3. Singer

  4. Maintenance

  5. Nursery worker

  6. Youth worker

  7. Graphic designer

Are Launch Team Members Paid For Their Services?

No, launch team members volunteer their service.  Eventually, some launch team members may become paid staffers as the church grows.

What Type Of Commitment Is Needed?

To become a launch team member, we ask that you volunteer a few hours weekly for the following purposes:

  1. Attend monthly launch team meetings

  2. Preferably attend weekly Bible study

What Are The Benefits OF Becoming A Launch Team Member?

We truly desire that each person who joins our launch team does so with prayerful consideration, and therefore, a benefit of joining is the satisfaction of knowing you truly are helping people and advancing God’s Kingdom. Another great benefit is the lifetime connections and friendships you will gain with some amazing individuals.
