We were made to serve…

It’s no secret, there is pure joy in serving others. Jesus was the best example of this, teaching his disciples by his actions, showing them what it meant to be a servant. Mark 10:45 “For even the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life as a ransom for many.”

If you call New Life your home on Sundays, be a part of God’s work here. We can’t do it on our own. We serve over 800 people every Sunday morning, and thousands more during the week between the nZone operations and community outreach. You could start by volunteering once a month. You will be surprised at how much fun you end up having, and when we use our gifts for God, it’s impossible not to experience an absolute joy that lasts all week long!

Community Outreach

Help us show God’s love to the community by giving a couple hours of your time. The joy you will experience while creating joy for others is unmistakable.

Sound good? to volunteer!

VIDEO PRODUCTION

  • Those awesome videos don’t create themselves. Daniel could use someone for a few hours during the week to help shoot videos or create videos on your own to help us tell stories of what God is doing at New Life! Got experience we can learn from? We want to talk to you too!

Experience appreciated but not required. Sound good? to volunteer!

WEB DESIGNER/DEVELOPER

nZone Facility Opportunities

Maintaining and operating the nZone is a huge job. Every dollar we save by having volunteers helps us spend more money reaching people for Christ or lowering our prices to make the nZone more accessible.

GREETING and WELCOME TEAM

  • Just like on Sunday morning you can be the first person someone sees as they enter the nZone, creating a safe, welcoming environment for people to experience the love of Jesus. Answer basic questions and make the nZone the friendliest place in NoVa.

Sound good? to volunteer!

DRYWALLER and/or PAINTER

  • Turns out soccer balls are pretty rough on walls… so are people lugging 100lb equipment bags. We pretty much always have a wall or two that could use some TLC. Help us make the nZone shine.

Sound good? to volunteer!

HANDYMAN/CARPENTER

  • We have loose dashers, we have doors that need adjusted, and we have undone cabinetry work like building shelving and repairing units.

Sound good? to volunteer!

ELECTRICIAN

  • You know those light fixtures with dark bulbs? Turns out it’s not the bulbs. We’d rather not pay hazard duty rates for the electrician to use that big scary lift. Work with 110 and 277? Let us know.

Sound good? to volunteer!

PLUMBER

  • We just can’t seem to keep all the drains unplugged or faucets working quite like they are supposed to. Just about the time we fix one of those, a toilet starts flushing on it’s own and for some reason that seems to freak out the three year olds who are potty training. You can make parents everywhere rejoice.

Sound good? to volunteer!

HVAC EXPERT

  • We think Ben got stuck in the air duct. No, actually, our office HVAC system has been acting up and would love for someone to come take a look at it and possibly fix up or clean the system.

Sound good? to volunteer!

ORGANIZER EXTRAORDINAIRE

  • We have a storage room that could use some organization. We keep trying to find time to do it, but haven’t made it that far. Could you come in for a couple hours and help us make some headway?

SURFACE WIPER-DOWNER
