Our Vision Team

We want to be a church that empowers people to serve in their giftedness. A crucial part of doing this well is empowering leaders to lead, and doing our best to help them succeed as they do so.

One of the key roles of Vision Teamers is the support and resourcing of our Frontlines Team. The support person’s objective is to help their assigned ministry team leader(s) do their job well, live out Life’s vision and values, and remain spiritually vibrant and healthy.
