Volunteer

About Volunteering

All of us were created by God to make a difference in the world around us.

God has a place for you where your unique abilities, personality, gifts & passions can impact the lives of others. We believe your life will never make sense until you find, develop, & fulfil your purpose. We know many people are making a difference in their workplaces, & the way we can help you make a difference at Oasis Church is through a volunteer team!

Anyone serving at Oasis is on the volunteer team. At Oasis Church, we believe there is no great divide between the “ministers” and the “congregation.” Everyone has something they can do to impact the lives of others in the Kingdom of God. From our perspective, every member of Oasis is a minister, every person is gifted in some area, & every task is important.

Discover what you do well & take steps to use your gifts to make a difference.
