JOIN the DREaM TEAM

For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

We believe that team work makes the dream work - and this is especially true at Lifehouse Newport News. Each week, an army of volunteers serve selflessly to help all people experience life change through Christ. There is an opportunity for YOU to join the team! Which of these areas make you say, "I'd love to do that!"?

Lifehouse Kids

We believe that kids and students aren't the church of tomorrow, but today! We want to create environments that are safe, clean, fun, and Jesus-focused, and help kids and students experience life change through Christ. If helping kids know, love, and serve Jesus gets you excited, this team is for you! Here are some opportunities:

Nursery (0-2)
Pre-School (3-5)
Elementary (K-5th Grade)

NOTE: All Lifehouse Kids volunteers are required to pass a background check.

Life Groups Leaders

We believe no one should do life alone! If you enjoy close knit community, good food & conversation, and have a heart to see people grow in their faith, you would thrive as a Life Group leader. 

Care Team

We call our church a family because that's what we are... brothers and sisters in Christ. And, just like family, we take care of each other's practical needs during the good and hard seasons of life. Some of those seasons include baby arrivals, illness and deaths in the immediate family. From time to time, we'll have an opportunity to bless our church family in those seasons with meals for them and their family. If you have a caring, empathetic and compassionate heart, the Care Team is for you!

Prayer Team

 Our Prayer Dream Team is integral in covering our church in prayer as well, praying for specific requests as we receive them, and reaching out through texts and phone calls to people who submitted requests. One of our core values is we Work As It All Depends on Us and PRAY As If It All Depends on God - and the prayer team helps us accomplish that. We're excited about your interest in applying!

Online Service Host

From posting announcements, links and interactive comments to being present on our pre and post service Zoom hangouts,  our Online Service Host Dream Team is integral in creating an online environment for life change through Christ to happen.
We're excited about your interest and would like to get to know more about you through this form. 

Online Life Group Leader

Dream Team Myths Debunked

Do I have to be a "good" or "perfect" Christian to join a Dream Team?

NO! There is a place for everybody on the team no matter where you are on your faith journey.

Do I have to commit to a Dream Team for the rest of my life? (Ha!)

NO! We suggest a 90-day trial period for whatever team you decide to volunteer for. If you don't like it, you are more than welcome to try another team or take a break!

Do I have to volunteer every Sunday for every service?

NO! We typically ask our volunteers serve at least one service every other week (two per month). However, if this isn't do-able for you, we will work with your schedule!

What if I've been coming to Lifehouse for a couple months?

There is a spot for you! Hopefully you see a trend here - No matter where you're at on your faith journey.
