Why Join A Team?
Here at United City Church, we believe God has a unique purpose for each of our lives. In serving others, we not only discover this purpose, but we become more like Jesus, demonstrating to the world that we are his disciples. As we do the work to build His kingdom, God works in and through us to make a lasting impact in our city and through all of the earth.
Our United City teams are made up of passionate people who have discovered their gifts and are actively pursuing them in and throughout our church. Our team members have the incredible opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ, focusing on showing everyone who walks through our doors the love of Jesus. Our mission is to create an environment where every guest would feel like United City Church is home regardless of age, stage of life, background, or experience.
United City Church is what it is today because of our faithful and committed Serve Team members. Together, we can do so much more when serving our church and community, making an eternal difference all for Jesus.
