Join a Dream Team

“God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another” I Peter 4:10 (NLT)

Serving on a Dream Team is a great way to connect with others & grow in your relationship with God. Join a team today! 

Our hope for you

Today our hope is to provide you with clear next steps to move you onto a team and into you purpose. If you are a follower of Jesus, you are called to serve Him and to serve people in His name. We are not made to be spiritual consumers. God has called us to be spiritual contributors. 

Serving on a Dream Team is where you’ll continue to grow relationally and spiritually as you walk in what God has called you to do. Seasons of life can be full, but we believe that God is going to use you to make an impact. The church does not exist for us. We are the church, and we exist for the world. We invite you to begin now and take your next step. 

“God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another” I Peter 4:10 (NLT)

Everyone is Welcome

We want everyone to feel welcome at Home Church and we recognize that everyone is on a different stage in their spiritual journey to become more like Christ and all He has called them to be. It is our desire that everyone that joins a Dream Team would use the Bible to determine their behaviors, speech and attitude and strive to honour Christ by exhibiting and upholding Biblical standards.

As a Dream Team Member we all are called to...

CONNECT WITH NEW PEOPLE 

People matter to God, so they matter to us. 

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” Philippians 2:3-4 

BUILD RELATIONSHIPS 

Real life-change happens and real leaders are developed when we take a step towards intentional relationships. 

“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.” Philippians 1:3-5 

EMPOWER EACH OTHER 

We are a people of purpose, working together on purpose. 

“He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.” Colossians 1:28 

CELEBRATE THE WINS 

There is nothing more powerful than a life changed by Christ. 

“In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Philippians 4:8- 9, 13

Additional Information

Planning Centre Servcies

Our Dream Teams are scheduled using an online program called Planning Center. You will receive an initial welcome email that will set up your profile. You will then be able to log in from any internet- connected device. You will then receive email or texts to let you know you are scheduled and you will accept or decline each request. You are also able to set up block-out dates and time preferences, you are only scheduled when you are available. If a leader tries to schedule you, they'll see your blocked- out dates and know you won't be able to serve without even having to ask. 

You can also log in at any time and manage your schedule by visiting planningcenteronline.com. The great thing about having your own account, is that you can update your email address, password, profile picture, or set up text messaging any time you want from your Profile page.

Volunteering with Children and Youth

It is our desire to reduce the risk of abuse within our church ministries. In order to provide a safe and secure environment for our Church’s children and youth, we believe it is necessary to have people undergo an application process. All information gathered will be kept in confidence by the church leadership and will not be disclosed by the church unless required by law.

Background Checks

Criminal Record & Intervention Record are required every 3 years for our volunteers who work with minors. 

If required, you will be provided a volunteer letter to bring to your local RCMP/ Police Detachment for you to request a criminal record check. As well, you will need to go to your local Child Family Services (CFSA) Office. (Red Deer location is at the Provincial Building Room #108 - 4920 – 51St) to request an Intervention Record Check.

Confidentiality Agreement

If volunteers need contact information to do calling on behalf of the Church, they will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement. Please contact your dream team leader for more information on this.

State of Christian Values

Some volunteer positions (determined by their responsibilities) require the signing of (1) The Statement of Faith and (2) The Lifestyle and Morality Standards. Please contact your dream team leader for more information on this.
