Volunteer

 
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” – Mark 10:45
 
We serve because we have been served in the greatest way by our Lord Jesus Christ. This frees us to serve joyfully, not for personal gain, but to glorify God and work for the flourishing of others. Look below at the many opportunities there are to serve at High Pointe and contact the designated point person if you’re interested.
Please note that all volunteer positions are for High Pointe members only. Some of the volunteer positions require you be a member for 6 months before serving.

Ways to Volunteer

Children’s Ministry

Please note: All children’s workers must complete High Pointe’s Child Protection screening process prior to serving. This includes a 6 month membership minimum, a background check, and our one hour child protection training.
  • Sunday Morning Nursery Worker: Currently, we need 2 workers for the Toddler – 2 year olds class for 5th Sundays (only 4 times a year). If interested, email Erin Wyman.
  • Sunday Evening Nursery Worker: We need 10 new Sunday evening nursery workers. This volunteer position is monthly. If interested, email Erin Wyman.
  • Nursery Floater: We need 4 nursery floaters. To maintain proper ratios, sometimes we need to bring in an extra Nursery worker to help. We call these “floaters.” Floaters only serve 3-4 times per year. If interested, email Erin Wyman.
  • KidsPointe Teacher: We need 1 KidsPointe Teacher. Would you be interested in teaching the Bible to kids during morning worship? If interested, email Erin Wyman.
  • AWANA Volunteer: We are currently seeking AWANA Leaders for the upcoming school year. Please consider joining this ministry opportunity to serve the children of High Pointe and their families. You can help children learn to hide God’s word in their hearts and learn more about the gospel! Please contact Travis Gilbert at awana@highpointeaustin.org for more information. All volunteers must complete High Pointe’s child protection screening process prior to serving. See Erin Wyman to get started.

Other Volunteer Opportunities
