Just as Jesus Christ came “not to be ministered to, but to minister,” we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others. At New World, we believe it is a privilege to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our own church body, in our neighborhoods and communities, and around the globe. Join us for one of our many opportunities to serve!


New World is full of opportunities for you to serve. We can help you find a place to use your gifts and talents to make a difference. The Body of Christ is designed as a community, as one body, where we meet the needs of those around us. When we all come together, we truly can make a difference!

Our goal is for every guest and member to receive a warm welcome from the moment they enter our parking lot and come through our doors. If you are interested in serving as a friendly Sunday morning greeter/host, usher, or parking lot attendant, please contact
