You've Got Skills
Being a volunteer is fun! Did you know that God has uniquely created you and given you gifts, and it’s important to use those gifts to serve others? We are here to help you experience your Life Purpose and find the place to make that happen! Don’t just sit on the sidelines – everyone gets a chance to play at The Village because our church would not be possible without the help of MANY volunteers.
What You Can Do
Check out the options below then use the button below to get started or contact the Team Leaders in the specific area you’re interested in! We promise it will be fun!
Do You Have To Serve Every Week?
The short answer is NO. Many of the serving opportunities can be scheduled monthly or whatever works for your schedule. When you join a team you are not locking in to serve every week…unless you want to!
Online Chat Room Team
Chat volunteers are a key part to our Online Campus. They connect with online church family, answer questions and guide them through the service. Be on the Facebook, YouTube or live.thevillagechristianchurch.com Chat Teams.
Volunteers check-in 10 minutes before service starts and serve until 10 minutes after service end. Contact Patrick Erzinger to find out more!
This team operates our audio/visual system. You can help with video, production slides, lights, or sound at the Minooka, Seneca, or Coal City Campuses. You’ll need to invest a few hours getting to know the software and then you’ be good to go! Contact Sarah Windham to find out more.
Check out this team if you’re a musician or vocalist at the Minooka, Seneca, or Coal City Campuses. Joining the band requires an audition. If you’re interested, contact Sarah Windham
Coffee Center & Baking Team
This important ministry creates a friendly atmosphere by providing a fresh cup of hot coffee or sweet lemonade before each service! Contact Joanne Kelly for the Minooka Campus, Sarah O’Sullivan for the Seneca Campus and Mike Strunga for the Coal City Campus.
Do you like to bake? Share your gift, we serve baked goods the 4th Sunday of each month. A plate of cookies or brownies is a great way to serve! Contact Shannon Wujek for the Minooka Campus, Sarah O’Sullivan for the Seneca Campus and Mike Strunga for the Coal City Campus.
Kid Village Team
Our Kid Village team ensures infants – 3rd grade students are safe while parents are in church. There are different classrooms based on age at both the Minooka and Seneca Campuses. Contact Amy Pehlke for Minooka Campus, Megan Morris for the Seneca Campus or Sara Hurt for Coal City Campus.
Pulse Students Teams
Pulse Students is a place where we connect students in a fun community. There’s a group for grades 4-5 (Pulse 45), a group for grades 6-8 (Pulse Jr.) and Pulse Sr. is our high school students. If you’re interested in helping with this ministry, contact:
Amy Pehlke – Pulse 45 Minooka Campus
Savanah Jones – Pulse Seneca Campus

Many people find our church because of the community signs. If you’re on the Sign Team, you would put a sign out in your neighborhood on Friday night and pick it up on Sunday afternoon/evening. It’s easy and has a huge impact! Contact Karol Scott if interested.
Social Media / Photography Teams
Like to take pictures? We love to capture moments as they happen and share them to celebrate all that God is doing. Join the Photography Team if you like to have fun while snapping pics. You don’t need a professional camera.
Are you on Facebook or Instagram? We are! We love to share what we’re doing on social media and are looking for volunteers to help! If you’re creative, the social media team is for you!
Contact Karol Scott if you’re interested in any of these teams! You can be at either the Minooka, Seneca, Coal City or Online Campuses.
If administration is your thing and you would like to help in the Minooka church office, then contact Shannon Wujek. You may help with mailings and special projects.
Building Maintenance / Landscaping Teams
The Building Maintenance Team helps keep our campuses in tip-top shape. If you’re handy and like fixing things, then this is the team for you! During the winter months we also need help shoveling snow and salting the sidewalks to keep everyone safe. Contact Tim Juskiewicz if you’re interested!
The Minooka Landscape Team keeps our grounds looking great. If you have a green thumb and want to share your gift, contact Susan Juskiewicz.
