Do you want to make a lasting impact on the next generation? Then Kids First is for you! We have volunteer opportunities for everyone - from safety and security, room monitors, small group leaders, baby holders, social media, and teachers!
Interested in joining the worship team? Check out the information below to see what would be right for you.
Band: The band is made up of both professional and volunteer musicians. Volunteer positions include electric guitar (both lead and rhythm), acoustic guitar, bass guitar, as well as vocalists. Because rehearsal is limited, players should have the ability to read charts (both contemporary as well as Nashville Number Charts) and be able to improvise when needed. The band rehearses on a set night during the week as well as on Sunday mornings prior to the service weekly. They also participate in various seasonal events and travel regionally as needed. Membership in the band is by interview and audition.
Front-Line Vocalists: The rotating team of Front-Line Vocalists ministers in the Sunday morning and Wednesday evening encounters as a part of the band. Teams are small, usually two to four people each. Singers on this team should have a humble spirit, strong platform presence and dynamic vocal ability in style, pitch, and blend. A brief interview and audition are required.
Interested in joining the Production Team?We would love to have you! No experience is required.
Join this group of dedicated volunteers to run the tech media equipment behind the scenes! We need help in all areas and your enthusiasm (along with our training) will set you up for success.
The Production Team is comprised of 4 areas: Audio; Video; Lighting; and Operations.
Below you will find many entry level positions as well as several positions that need more experience. The expectation is that you will serve on a team no less than one Sunday morning a month and no more than three Sunday mornings a month. We want to make sure you have the opportunity to spend the other Sundays in the service with your family or friends.
Audio: On Sunday's, our focus is mainly on the morning worship service, running the sound board mix and the monitor board (iPad) as well as cueing up the headset mics for any of the speakers on the platform. Beginning opportunities will be in learning the platform set up, as well as supporting other ministry areas in the church for their Sunday worship service (i.e. Children’s Ministry with Pastor Katie) with their media needs for the morning and throughout the week. Other opportunities exist in some of our larger rooms such as running the tech media equipment (along with the set up & tear down) in the Youth Center/Auditorium for Youth Nights and the Ministry Corner for Spanish services and various other events.
Video: On any Sunday morning or for any large event here at JFA, there are opportunities to work with the video crew in areas such as camera operations, shading and video directing (Video Switcher), etc. Our computer graphics (CG) ministry falls under this category, too, and we welcome those interested in creating backgrounds for the lyrics that go on the LED wall as well operating the computer that generates the lyrics for both the screens and the confidence monitors (CG).
Lighting: Our lighting team is responsible for lighting the stage and creating special lighting effects during services and special productions. The team also maintains the lighting equipment. A Lighting Director is used for every service and special production or event.
Operations: During Sunday services this team calls the cues for the morning, helping to coordinate everything between the Audio, Video, & Lighting teams. This largely falls on the Service Producer and Stage Manager positions. During special productions there may be a need for several Production Assistants (serving the needs of the Service Producer) as well as Stagehands (serving the needs of the Stage Manager).
You only get one chance for a first impression, and at JFA.church we aim to make that first impression a lasting impression. That is why one of our core values is "We Are Welcoming". If you are passionate about hosting and welcoming others, join our team.
