We believe that a fully devoted follower of Christ has a ministry in Jesus' Church. No job is to big and no job is too small—find a place to serve based on your gifting.
“There are diversities of gifts...and there are differences (different kinds) of ministries...but the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all...but one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills...but now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.”
1 Corinthians 12:4–5, 7, 18, 27

FAQ for serving
Do I need to be a member to serve? Short answer is, yes! There are some positions where you can be a regular attender to serve (like first impressions), but in order to serve the body at South Side, you need to be a member at South Side.
What if I don't feel qualified? We believe that God doesn't call the qualified but that God qualifies the called. All ministries and positions have training sessions to help you serve to the best of your abilities. For some areas, such as worship team, a level of skill may be required.
How much of a commitment do I have to make in order to serve? Each position has a different commitment. Most ministries leaders will work with you and your schedule so that you can serve the body effectively and joyously.
