Teams

Special things happen through Teams. We believe that we can accomplish more together than we can on our own. That’s because we were created to be a part of something greater than ourselves and to contribute our unique gifts for the sake of others. Ultimately, God grows us as we serve others. All of us are invited to partner with God and others to transform our church, our city, and this world.

Through our Teams we serve a wide range of needs within the walls of the church and outside of the walls of the church. We invite everyone to Serve on a Team – check out our teams below to find your best fit!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Scroll down to see details about each serving team at Soul City.

    Yes, absolutely! Many of our volunteers do.

    Soul City does not approach church membership in the traditional manner. In fact, we do not have members. We have owners. These are all-in people who gather at a Table, serve on a Team, grow on the Track, and give generously. They see themselves as being a partner in the work happening in and through Soul City.

    After you have expressed interest in joining a specific team, a Ministry leader will reach out to you within 48 hours. From there you will be invited into the volunteer onboarding process which will include an initial “get to know you” conversation, you’ll be sent a short volunteer role description, in most cases an invitation to “test drive” the role, and a request for a background check. The ministry leader will follow-up and communicate specific details about further training, scheduling, and additional information about the Team.

    Ultimately our ministry leaders seek to partner with you to find a position and frequency that fits your schedule. Usually our teams have a twice a month serving expectation. There are some Teams that have a weekly serving expectation due to their seasonality, while other Teams have a less frequent serving rhythm. If you have questions about the frequency of serving, a ministry leader would be happy to have a discussion with you!

    Yes! The majority of our Teams use a scheduling system that allows you to set any dates you are unavailable to serve, as well as to accept or decline any requests to serve. The best way to build a serving schedule that works for you is to keep open communication with the Ministry Leader who oversees your team.

    Our best practice is to notify you 3-4 weeks in advance of the date that you'll be serving. Many Teams accomplish this by establishing a mutually agreed upon serving rhythm with you, along with consistent communication via email, text messages, or group messaging apps.

    Hey Soul City!

    A quick message for those joining us in person this weekend:

    Recently, the CDC shared new guidelines for wearing face masks in public and in indoor settings to promote safety in areas with substantial risks of transmission. Therefore, we are requiring that masks are worn while in the building on Sundays.

    We are continuously reviewing the CDC guidelines and what our next steps will be – as your safety remains our priority.
