There are many opportunities to participate in your church through volunteering. Whatever your gifting may be, there is a place for you. Please review the opportunities below and Contact Us for next steps on getting started!
If you feel comfortable praying for people, there is a need for you to join our prayer team. Following each service there are individuals from the prayer team who meet in the Mother’s Room and pray directly with individuals. There is brief training provided for this, so all volunteers have an understanding of resources available etc.
The 1017 Project is a ministry of the church that provides beef free of charge to families in need. Shiloh owns a herd of over 240 cattle and has many areas of volunteer opportunities related to this ministry. Please see the specific 1017 handout under “Buddy” the bull in the lobby to be added to a specific volunteer area of this ministry.
The Shiloh Ranch Response Team exists to support members of the church body experiencing the loss of a loved one, or other life difficulties, such as a planned or unplanned hospital stay. This ministry also includes our “Take a Meal” volunteer team, for those in need of meals during a recovery process, new birth or life difficulty. These individuals go through training to enable them to handle bereavement situations. This group also oversees hospital visits and individual follow up of church members in difficult situations. This group corresponds through email and text messaging and meets on a monthly basis for prayer and to review situations within the church to ensure all bases are covered.
A prime candidate for the Take a Meal Program would be an individual who knows they will be going in for surgery and has requested assistance by having dinner brought to them and their family during their first week of recovery. Volunteers of this program receive notification when a need inside the church arises, and choose to provide a meal that works for them. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AN AMAZING COOK TO DO THIS!…Many choose to pick up a Tate and Tate Casserole and deliver that:) Signing up does not obligate you to cover every need. If the timing doesn’t work out for that specific need, no problem, just hit up one of the future ones. This volunteer group is a very low stress, yet high impact ministry of the church!
Shiloh Ranch has a beautiful home on 56 acres. This does however require maintenance to keep looking nice. There are many areas for people to jump in and help.
Property Clean Up Days – If you would like to be notified of church work days please sign up for this. During these days, members of the church commit a couple hours to clean up around the property. Duties such as weed eating, pulling weeds, planting flowers, washing windows, cutting tree limbs, cleaning up the road way etc.

Slide Operators – You may notice the big screens with words during worship, or bible verses displayed throughout the sermon.
