From ushers and greeters to parking lot attendants to the hosts and hostesses at the Welcome Center, Central has assembled a robust hospitality team dedicated to serving you.
From the moment you first arrive on campus, we want you to feel the love of Jesus through friendly smiles and warm handshakes. It’s no mistake that you’re here, so there are people in place to help you find your way around, assist you in finding a seat, and answer any questions you may have.
Special parking is available for first-time guests (just follow the signs), so be sure to let our parking lot attendants know if you’re new. By the way, the hospitality team can always use extra help, so click on the "Volunteer" button above to get involved.
To pursue any of the following volunteer opportunities with the Hospitality Team, complete the application below, or contact Angela Sims, 704-295-6888. All areas serve on a rotation schedule.
The overall church experience begins in the parking lot, therefore this ministry impacts and influences every person who drives onto Central’s campus. Roles include welcoming people with friendly greetings, supplying assistance to those with wheelchairs or children, ushering first-time guests into special parking spaces and escorting them into the buildings, driving attendees on golf carts to provide easy access from the parking lot to the church buildings, and ensuring the parking lot is a safe and inviting environment.
The ministry of ushering is a crucial part of the church. The church usher duties include making people feel welcome, assisting with seating, collecting offerings, serving communion, distributing bulletins and other flyers, assisting pastors and staff with people management, and helping maintain a safe and welcoming environment.
A church greeter is often the first person people see when attending a worship service. Greeters perform a major role in ensuring that people see and experience the love of Christ. This ministry is designed to make everyone feel welcome. This includes warm greetings of smiles, hugs, and/or handshakes, assistance with doors and helping those with questions or needing directions.
Welcome desk volunteers provide hospitality that goes beyond an initial greeting. This includes walking adults and/or children to classrooms or other locations on campus, answering a range of questions from guests, selling church event tickets, helping with event registrations, and serving as the point person in the sanctuary for all first-time guests.
If you speak fluent Spanish or Russian and would like to translate during the 10:30 Sunday service for our guests with those primary languages, we need you.
