The thing we care most about at Relevant is the mission God has called us on of spiritual transforming people, so we can live as a transforming church, that is part of glocally transforming the world. We don't have a formal membership process at Relevant. For us, anyone who is part of Relevant is considered a "member". Staff, on the other hand, are those who have committed to step up and drive Relevant's mission forward.
What is Volunteer Staff?
Webster defines staff as "a group of persons charged with carrying out the work of an establishment or executing some undertaking." That is exactly what our volunteer Staff do. Relevant Staff are people who take on the responsibility of driving the mission forward. They invest in the mission of Relevant with their time, passion, strength, and resources. They are the people that function as a true "body" by sharing common beliefs, mission, and commitments. They help create, embrace, and drive the DNA of Relevant. They commit to the mission and to one other "heart and soul" (1 Samuel 14:7).

Staff understand that church is not a destination or a building, but an identity and a people. Our volunteer Staff do not "go to" Relevant; they ARE Relevant.
Why Should I Become Volunteer Staff?
It's not about getting something, it's about giving something. So the real "benefit" to being on Staff is experiencing the ministry of Relevant on a deeper level and having the satisfaction that you did it. You made it happen. You worked for it, lived for it, sweat for it - TOGETHER!

Note: You don't have to serve in a leadership role in order to be on staff, but if you want to serve as a leader at Relevant, you must first be on Staff.
How Do I Become Volunteer Staff?
Everyone who comes on Volunteer Staff goes through Staff Orientation. Staff Orientation is an 11-week group that will teach you more about God, your church, and yourself. Staff Orientation also helps people shift their mindset from being a church "consumer" to being an "investor" in Relevant's mission of transformation. At the end of Staff Orientation, you have a better understanding of where Relevant is going and how you can help drive the mission using your unique strengths. Staff Orientation sign-ups take place in January, May, and September on the Events page.
