Serve


And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.


Galatians 6:9–10



The call to serve in the body of Christ is a call for every Christian. The Lord Jesus set the example of humble service through his life, having taken the form of a servant (Philippians 2:7) and by inviting his disciples to follow his example (John 13:15). He calls his people to serve him with gladness and with a whole heart. Serving him is not a way of earning merit from him but it is a response to the gracious work he has done for us. At Redeemer we have many formal opportunities where members can serve.


We are so grateful for our current volunteers and as we look ahead, we know that our ability to gather and the opportunity for our church to serve with us is going to expand! And as these opportunities grow, we want to see our different ministry teams grow as well. We encourage you to consider your God-given giftings and to serve in any of the following areas of ministry within the church. Simply fill out the volunteer application and a member of our team will be in touch with you.

Connection Team


The connection team serves our church through proactive hospitality, and it intentionally demonstrates love and care to those who come to our gatherings like Christ has shown us. This ministry seeks to help our church attendees feel comfortable and welcomed into our church family and go from first time visitors to active members in our church. From arranging seats, to checking in attendees, to ushering people to their seats as well as ushering them out of the hall in an orderly manner after the gathering, this ministry is vital to the life of our church. The connection team also serves to engage with attendees and directs them to resources like the bookstall, restrooms, etc. Training will be provided by one of our deacons to ensure you are equipped to serve.


Time Commitment: Fridays, once or twice a month, one or both gatherings (depending on number of gatherings and availability).

This ministry seeks to ensure that we are able to gather and worship the Lord together at any given time and venue by transporting, setting up, and tearing down all equipment.

The service coordinator helps focus attention and eliminate distractions by ensuring all service elements and transition cues are known by everyone involved in the gathering (production team, music team, pastors, Scripture reader, etc.).

Training will be provided by one of our Redeemer staff members to ensure you are equipped to serve.

Photography Team


The photography team serves to capture various memories and visuals of the life of our church. Dubai being such a transient location means that while many become closely bonded at Redeemer, for some of them, their seasons are shorter. Having evidence of the Lord’s hand at work in our midst is a great encouragement to those near and far. Capturing memories allows us to look back at the faithfulness of the Lord to build his church here in Dubai and reflecting helps us look forward to the future where those found in Christ will be together forever. Training will be provided by our deaconess of photography.


Time Commitment: Upon request - Friday gatherings, membership classes, special events (Christmas, baptisms, church anniversaries, etc.)
