Minister to the Body

Serve the local Body of Christ with us.

In order to serve here at Calvary Chapel, there are a few things that must be evident in your life. Below is a list of some of the Characteristics of a Christian. May the Lord use this list to draw you closer to Him and may you be blessed by serving Jesus with your whole heart.

You must also fill out our Ministry Application AND Background Check online. Once you fill out your Ministry Application you will be sent an email with a link to a secure, online Background Check form that you must fill out prior to serving.
Love (John 13:35 & 1 Corinthians 13:1-8)
  • The defining mark of true Christian faith. Without agape love evident in a person’s life, all the gifts are of no eternal value and will not edify the God’s people.
  • You can’t save someone you don’t love, nor can you minister to someone you don’t love.

Be an Example (1 Timothy 4:12)
  • You represent Jesus Christ
  • You represent this ministry
    • In conduct, speech, and attitude

Be Faithful (2 Timothy 2:2 & 1 Corinthians 4:2)
  • Attend scheduled events and meetings
  • Be on time (stewardship of others time)
  • Be a man/woman of your word
    • Follow through with your commitments

Be a Team Player (Phil. 1:27 & 1 Corinthians 12:14-27)
  • Lay down your will for the good of the Body
    • Opinions which divide, personal agendas, and personality conflicts
  • Respect authority (Hebrews 13:17)
    • Be supportive of your leader and be submissive to his/her decisions

Be a Servant (Matthew 20:27-28 & John 13:1-17)
  • You serve the Lord
    • It’s a privilege to serve Him!
    • Do everything as unto Him
    • No task is too menial
    • You are not providing a favor
  • You serve the Body
    • Don’t be a distraction; presentation is paramount
    • Every decision should be for the good of the people

Be a Good Steward (Luke 16:10-13)
  • Tithe – The Lord requires it (Malachi 3:10)
  • It’s a reflection of trust and surrender to Him
  • To teach and sing of faith and to be faithless is hypocrisy
  • Use what He’s given you for Him and His Kingdom - Your time, talent, and treasure

Attend Weekly Services (Hebrews 10:25)
  • You must attend in-person a minimum of 6 months of regular participation in Sunday morning services. This demonstrates a hunger for God’s Word, a passion for worship and a love for God’s people.
  • Consistent attendance and ministry at our weekly services is a great example to other people in the church and allows you to get to know us as we get to know you.
  • When you begin serving, you must also attend services on the weeks you are not scheduled to serve.
  • You must be attending and active within a Small Group ministry at Calvary Chapel Clayton.
