Ministry Teams

List of Ministry Teams:





Welcome and Follow Up Team


Welcome and Follow Up is an outreach ministry team that exists to obey the call of Romans 15:7 to “welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God”. We serve on Fridays during large group and have biweekly meetings every even Monday. Our ministry team seeks to encourage our members to grow a greater love for the church body and for nonbelievers through the means of outreach.

Music Team


Music team is a ministry dedicated to facilitating and practicing humble worship that flows from Spirit-filled hearts and truth-filled lyrics, as Jesus Himself has commanded us that “those who worship God must worship in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). As a team, therefore, we seek to recount together God’s works in Scripture and benefits toward us through Jesus Christ, and to respond with joyful praise (Psalm 116:12-13), striving by God’s strength to exemplify Spirit-led and sincere worship that flows from truths that resonate with the redeemed soul (Colossians 3:16) and hearts that have been transformed by God’s lovingkindness (Romans 6:17, Psalm 136). To humbly and confidently approach God week after week in song - in adoration, confession, dedication, lament, meditation, rejoicing - is a privilege particular to every blood-bought Christian (Hebrews 13:12-15), and members of music team have no special stake in that right; we are positioned up front to help facilitate the worship of God’s people as He works in all of our hearts towards worship, and for no other reason. In short, our desire is for the eyes of all to be toward Christ: our Savior, our Great High Priest, our Friend, and our King (Hebrews 12:1-2).

Sound Team


Sound team serves the other ministry teams in GOC by assembling and controlling the audio/visual system for our large groups. We run the lights, slides, and sound system during GOC and set up the equipment for Music team to use during GOC. At our meetings, we spend time in the Word, pray for each other, and learn about the different pieces and aspects of our sound equipment. Our mission is to serve Christ and His body by helping others hear the sermons and songs, and by enhancing an atmosphere of worship and praise to the Lord. You don't have to have any prior experience to join, so we definitely welcome believers who have no experience with any sound equipment! Please come and check us out if you’re interested!

Care Team


Care Team is a ministry team dedicated to in-reach and making sure that the members of GOC are cared for. This is carried out by projects that we come up with and deliver, such as Fall Quarter’s Christmas Grams or our quarterly Midterm Munchies. Care Team is a quarterly commitment and is open to any GOC-ers who want to serve in ministry. Meetings are currently being held over Zoom on Monday evenings.

Media Team


Media Team does a few things in GOC that you may have seen, like designing announcement slides, Facebook cover photos, and apparel. We also help out with photography during events such as Broomball or Welcome Week. Our goal is to develop a consistent image of our ministry through graphic design, photography, and social media for our ministry to reflect the cohesiveness and unity of our fellowship. We do this primarily through serving other ministry teams and designing items for them.

Rides


Rides Team is a ministry of GOC that seeks to serve students by organizing carpools for Sunday services at Grace Community Church - and any other off-campus event. In doing so, we aim to promote fellowship by intentionally forming new groups to ride together each week. Rides Team meets each Friday after large group to organize the drivers and riders for the weekend. During the pandemic, Rides has taken a step back in forming carpools, but still meets every other week for prayer and fellowship.

Prayer Team


Prayer Ministry exists to pray for our fellowship (GOC) and church (GCC), and in doing so, to grow in our own personal prayer lives. We're meeting regularly every Thursday evening at 8PM for 1 hour, and normally there's a short devotional followed by time to pray with one another. Currently, we're going through a mini series on David's sin with Bathsheba, and his subsequent repentance in Ps 51. During our meetings we pray for our ministry/church and its various needs, including our leadership, ministry teams, missionaries, events, etc.

A-Team


A-Team is the Administration Team for Grace on Campus! We are a ministry of GOC that seeks to glorify God through the logistical side of ministry by event planning and scheduling so that our shepherd can fully devote himself to the preaching of God's Word.

Homeless Outreach


Homeless Outreach takes place every Tuesday from 7-9:30pm at the Salvation Army on Fourth Street in Santa Monica. We partner with Cornerstone Church and other UCLA Christian fellowships to cook and serve food to the homeless and build relationships with the people there. Our main purpose is to share the love of Christ with our homeless neighbors not only by providing for their physical needs, but also by pointing them to their greatest need of all, the gospel of Christ.

Web Team


Web team is a ministry team that uses technology to connect and inform both those within our fellowship as well as those outside. We provide GOC with announcements, sermon recordings, rides, and resources to better equip believers in our walk, and are one of the ways for newcomers to learn more about us. Our team maintains and updates the GOC website and mobile app by implementing new features and fixes so that GOC can better serve the body.

REACH


REACH is the relational evangelism ministry of GOC, and we exist to encourage and equip GOCers to live lifestyles of evangelism in the relationships that God has placed in our lives. We are the counterpart to the Fishermen’s Team of GOC; Fishermen’s Team primarily deals with cold-contact evangelism, whereas REACH primarily deals with evangelizing to friends and family—people that you would generally have long-term relationships with. If you have ever needed accountability or encouragement while you reach out to a non-believing family member or friend, REACH is the ministry team for you.

Fisherman's Team


Fishermen’s Team is GOC’s cold contact evangelism team, deriving its name from the Bible’s analogy of being “fishers of men”. With the world growing in perversion and sinfulness day by day, it is extremely important for us to foster the attitude of being an ambassador for Christ. In the case of Fishermen's team, this is done through a focus on spreading the gospel to strangers and other people outside our normal routine lives. During this time, the team has been meeting over Zoom to cultivate and encourage a greater knowledge of how we can better shine our lights to the world. Since talking and approaching strangers can be tricky, especially during this time, growing in biblical knowledge as well as apologetics helps the team to be better equipped for when more opportunities arise.
