Do you long to make a difference in another person’s life? Do you want to live more generously so that others can see God in you? Are you looking for ways to serve something outside yourself? At New Hope Church, we believe that a desire to serve is perhaps the greatest sign that one is growing more and more like Jesus. God has given each of us gifts to help build the church and extend His love and compassion to a needy world. This is why we offer so many ways for you to make a contribution with your time, talents, and treasures.
The time commitment will vary depending on your schedule, the area you are serving in, and whether you are serving during the week or on the weekend. In this busy world, it’s hard to sacrifice your time, but the fun and fulfillment of volunteering makes it all worthwhile!

Where do I fit?
We’ve gone back and dusted off our psychology textbooks to develop the following profiles that best capture the population of New Hope. Look for these icons in each team's section and use them as a key to help identify where you might fit best, based on your strengths and personality.
The Trailblazer typically leads the charge to inspire and motivate others. They are risk-takers and problem solvers who love a challenge and will rise to it without fail every time!
The Social Butterfly is outgoing, friendly, and loves to network. They love chatting it up and naturally make people feel at ease. Social butterflies have never met a stranger!
The Artist loves to create stirring beautiful experiences. They thrive when they can use their talents and imagination to inspire people in new and exciting ways.
The Guardian is a protector and a caretaker. Guardians look at the world with compassion, and love to serve those around them.
The Ninja is task-oriented and loves details. They are incredibly thorough and good at getting tasks accomplished. The Ninja is so stealthy you may never see one, but you'll know they were there by the trail of completion!
STILL NOT SURE?
There's always a chance that you could fit into more than one of these categories. Not to worry, versatility is an excellent attribute to have and many of our teams can benefit from having more than one personality type. Ask you family or close friends to point out your strengths; you may learn things about yourself you've never realized before! If you're still unsure, feel free to ask a New Hope staff member for assistance in where you might find your niche among the volunteer teams.
We want to do everything we can to find the best place for you so you will be energized and blessed serving others! Go ahead and jump in. Become a part of what God is doing through New Hope Church. It’s a decision you’ll never regret.
