We love to give our time and energy because serving moves others to Jesus and helps us grow.
Serving is one of our fundamental values because we believe that through serving, you will be able to make a kingdom impact while meeting some incredible people along the way.
PLACES TO SERVE
Sunday Morning Serving Opportunities
WayKids is the place where foundations are laid for life-change through fun games, relevant curriculum, and amazing World Changers. If helping kids understand who Jesus is and how He can change their lives gets you excited, this is the team for you.
We are passionate about seeing 5th-7th grade students decide to believe in and follow Jesus and serve Him in their own fun and age-appropriate environment. We want each student to understand that they are deeply loved and incredibly valuable through personal relationships, engaging teaching, and tailored worship. World Changers make MIDWAY a place that students feel safe, loved, and excited to come back!
Waymaker Worship exists to make a way for the new and deeper with Jesus Christ through worship. We believe that we are on the frontline of what our church is learning and have committed to sending our praises ahead of, declare truth over, and magnify the Lord in it all. He is great and greatly to be praised!
Production is on the frontline of everything that happens on Sunday mornings. We have the privilege of working with video, audio, and lighting to create engaging environments for our Sunday morning gatherings and our online experience. Whether you are experienced in production or have never worked in technical areas before but are excited to learn, this is the team for you!
This team is for those that want to serve in an online capacity to pray, connect, and chat with online attenders. We believe that this team provides connection, support, and a spiritual covering for our Online Campus.
We are passionate about creating great street-to-seat experiences for everyone who attends Waymaker.Church each Sunday. We want everyone to feel welcomed, known, and cared for. Every smile matters! The Host Team includes the Parking Team, the Greeter Team, the Usher Team, and the World Changer Care Team. (Our World Changer Care Team is committed to serving those who serve our body by providing various breakfast options while serving and greeting World Changers.)
Campus Safety is a team of people who have a heart to serve others through safety and security. We exist to provide safe and secure environments that allow our guests to worship distraction-free.
Midweek Serving Opportunities
WayYouth is a weekly Wednesday night environment for 8th-12th graders. We believe students can and will rise to change their communities when they encounter Jesus and His life-changing presence through worship, teaching, and small groups. World Changers set the tone for the evening, engage students in conversation, and help create an environment where students can go to new and deeper levels with Jesus.
We believe that college-aged students have something to say- their anthem is that they are Waymakers. This ministry is designed to partner with college students so that they can lead and learn in the local church. Through student interactions during worship nights or small groups, World Changers regulate the atmosphere of what happens in Anthem.
Waymaker.Church’s Lay Counseling ministry aims to make a way for people who struggle in a broken world. We offer the following options for those who attend Waymaker.Church to receive counseling:
Individual Counseling: Our lay counselors offer one-on-one counseling to help hurting individuals during seasons of healing.
Marriage Mentoring: Our marriage mentors offer guidance for married couples who are struggling through a season of trial and stress.
Every day a growing number of children wake up wondering where they will sleep, what they will eat and who, if anyone, will love and care for them. Mosaic is our local response to adopt, foster, and serve the often-forgotten children in our community. If you are excited about serving these children as well as foster families, then this team is for you.
The Global vision of Waymaker.Church is to provide people and necessary resources in order to bring hope to the poorest of the poor, healing to the sick, and freedom to those held captive. It is through this vision that Waymaker Global seeks to extend the gospel to people groups around the world, encouraging them to go to new and deeper levels with Jesus Christ. We undertake this mission by building strong relationships with partners around the world, encouraging our church body to take part in short-term missions, preparing and sending short-term teams and long-term missionaries, developing leaders, advocating for change, and leading unbelievers to Jesus. It’s through this mission that Waymaker Global seeks to build a thriving global culture within our church and around the world.
Local Outreach at Waymaker.Church exists to bring hope to those who are hurting and in need within our local community. We provide opportunities for the church body to be the hands and feet of Christ by putting Christian faith into action through service to the community. We believe that we serve God by serving others. We do this locally in the greater Lynchburg area by partnering with key ministries within our church and key organizations outside of our church.
