Even if you have only a little bit of time - you can make a BIG difference and have fun serving with a team. (Side benefit: TMP will feel more like home and you'll get to know a lot more people!) Most areas schedule on an easy once-per-month rotation so you can fit service into your schedule, from just minutes to hours/month.
- If you have less than 1/2 hour a month try: take down after service / theatre prep / cleaning
- If you have 1 hour a month try: greeting / usher for one service / set-up / make snacks for kids / administration / play with kids (age 0-10)
- If you have 1 Sunday a month try: coffee / multi-media / play with kids (age 0-10)
- YOU have a place waiting for you at The Meeting Place Church in Nanaimo!
All our teams provide hands-on training, so if you're not sure you're ready we'll help you get up to speed in no time. You can try out an area to see if it is a good fit, and our team environments make it easy to trade to cover your shift when the unexpected happens. It's that easy!
THANK YOU for your heart to serve and volunteer!
Vocalists / Instrumentalists
We love our musicians who help make The Meeting Place an awesome experience!
We are a young, outreach-focused church in Nanaimo effectively reaching spiritual seekers with the good news of Jesus Christ. If you're a Christian musician with a desire to have your music make a real eternal difference, this may be the place for you! We're looking for positive and enthusiastic team players to join our team. If you've got a heart for spiritual seekers and love to play contemporary, popular and upbeat music, please drop our music pastor Julian Bakker a line.
Do you enjoy listening to the details of music - which instruments and vocals are more featured than others? Would you love to learn how to run and mix music to create an irresistible environment for people to engage with God through music? Then our Audio Team may be for you! No prior knowledge is necessary. Training is provided.
Production volunteers work behind the scenes to make sure that all service related visual equipment are unloaded, set up, and operated at each service. They also help pack up equipment at the end of each service. If you’re a tech-savvy kind of the person who’s interested in audio mixing, camera operating, live video editing, stage tech, light tech, or production setup/teardown, this is the ministry to join. No extensive experience necessary, just willing hearts needed.
Theatre Setup / Take Down
Looking for a an easy yet engaging way to volunteer and get to know some really awesome people? If you answered yes and have some time to spare on a Sunday morning we’ve got a great opportunity for you. These teams are responsible for setting up and setting down all the technical and creative aspects of the Sunday morning experience. This is one of the favourite areas to explore if you are a bit shy and/or would love to have a physical task. All training is provided so come on and get connected!
Our hospitality team welcome people on Sunday mornings, help them find their way, and provide the information they need to get connected and involved here. If you’re a people person, helping with greeting, mingling, coffee and tea serving, info table, and ushering then serving in this ministry is a great idea.
Youth & Young Adults
The City Youth and Young Adult volunteers help lead and grow these vibrant ministries that are all about seeing young adults, teens and pre-teens take their next best step to following Jesus. If you love spending time with middle and high school youth, or young adults, then you’ll love serving in this ministry. Pick one, and get involved.
