We value our volunteers here at Shore Vineyard. We believe that serving is a big part of being a follower of Jesus. Jesus, himself, took the role of a servant and he washed his disciples’ feet as an example to them that they do the same.
Getting involved in a volunteer ministry gives you the opportunity to connect with others and have a direct influence on transforming lives in our community and around the world. Behind every transformed life are the faces of our volunteers, whether greeting a guest at the door, holding an infant in the nursery, projecting words on the screen from the sound booth… or anything in between. It’s a joy to know we’re making an eternal impact on others!
Join in and become a part of what God is doing through Shore Vineyard. You’ll be happy you did.

Join the Nurture Team and look after our first generation. We expect each parent of a young child to take their turn, but many others can also participate. Supervise children check-in, watch over the little ones as they play or nap, pray for them
SUNDAY SCHOOL -
Become a leader or a helper in our pre-K or our high-energy, video-based Gen2Gen program. The children love this program. You become a disciple right alongside of them.
Help prepare the church each Sunday morning. Make coffee and put out refreshments. Place signs outside. Prepare communion and make sure everything is ready.
Add your warm smile and voice to the team that welcomes each person as they come in to church. Guide newcomers to what to expect. Give attenders their bulletin and provide them information on ministries and events.
WORSHIP TEAM -
If you are a lover of God and you play an instrument or sing well, you are a candidate to join us in leading worship. Generally, you will start by joining a Shore House of Prayer team and contributing your gift during the week. We have various classes to prepare your ability to serve on a team, gain in intimacy with God and your knowledge of the Bible, and to use your voice and/or instrument to serve the Lord.
MINISTRY TEAM -
Learn how to pray for people so they can receive healing, salvation, or a word from the Lord to change their lives. Towards the end of every worship service, we invite people to receive ministry. We will train you and take advantage of training you’ve already received.
Here are some of the ministries that need your help throughout the week.
MEALS/HOME VISITATION -
Bring people a meal or some good conversation when they are recovering from sickness, giving birth, or other major life issues.
HOSPITAL VISITATION –
We like to visit people as soon as possible when they need to go to the hospital. We pray for them to get healed and return home as soon as possible. It is also a time of ministering to family issues of faith, hope, and, love. We will train you!
YOUTH DETENTION CENTER –
We regularly send a team to the Ocean County Youth Detention Center, and minister to these young people who have been jailed for crime. This is a powerful time of witness that can be life changing for both those who minister and those who receive ministry.
