Gateway Team Member

Gateway volunteers do more than just hold doors and smile. We are the first impression of the church, and thereby God, to our guests! Most guests will decide in the first few minutes if they will return, even before the music starts. You are the first loving touch every guest will meet, which sets the stage for people to be open to life change (Love our community and invite them into a life-changing relationship with Jesus –BCC mission statement). BCC is a place where ALL are welcome. The Gateway ministry is committed to putting these words into action for all that come to BCC services and special events, whether that person is a long-time partner, sporadic attender or is visiting for the very first time. As The Gateway Ministry engages with and encourages guests the Church will grow.


To welcome, connect with, inform and create WOW environments for first-time attenders as they experience Bridgetown Church of Christ.

Who can serve?

Open to all – women, men, singles, couples, young adults, seniors.
