MosaicSD’s “Volunteer Staff” is made up of people who have committed to serve, lead and give at the highest level at MosaicSD.
Our Volunteer Staff are our ministry team leaders, community group leaders, mentors and others who make MosaicSD such a unique place.
The only reason to join Volunteer Staff is if you want to make a greater commitment to invest in others in and with MosaicSD. We’d love to have you on our team.

For all who are interested in Volunteer Staff, we have a four-step path.
The Volunteer Staff Path looks like this:
Step 1: The Cross
It all begins at the Cross.
“The Cross” is a 40 minute session led by Pastor Mark Bell and the MosaicSD Leadership Team. It is offered on the last Sunday each month at 10:20 (in between the two gatherings).
“The Cross” is designed for all who want to learn more about Jesus and baptism, which are the first steps on our journey. If you are interested in learning about a relationship with Jesus and/or you are interested in learning more about MosaicSD and our Volunteer Staff, this is the place to begin.
If you are interested in attending “The Cross,” email Brandon@MosaicSD.org.
Step 2: The Pilgrimage
Life is a journey, and we want to help you along the way.
“The Pilgrimage” is a one-on-one mentorship, during which you’ll journey with a peer-mentor through six essential building blocks of spiritual growth. You’re welcome to team up with a mentor you already know at Mosaic, or we’ll pair you with someone based on the area of town you live in.
The Pilgrimage is open to all who have completed “The Cross” session.
If you have completed “The Cross,” and would like to go through “The Pilgrimage,” PAIR UP WITH A MENTOR

Step 3: The Covenant
We have been designed to live in community, to be part of a tribe.
“The Covenant” is a 90-minute lunch session led by MosaicSD’s Leadership Team. It is offered the last Sunday each month directly following the 11am gathering (approx. 12:15pm).
At “The Covenant,” you will learn about the defining characteristics of MosaicSD, such as our core values, core convictions, mission statement and Volunteer Staff commitments. “The Covenant” is open to all who have completed both The Cross and Pilgrimage seminars.
If you have completed “The Cross,” and “The Pilgrimage,” and would like to attend “The Covenant,” email Brandon@MosaicSD.org.
Step 4: Commissioning
Every follower of Jesus has been called by God.
As a community, MosaicSD embraces this by commissioning people who have been called to serve the world with us. These commissioned people are our Volunteer Staff.
Commissioning ceremonies happen monthly on the last Monday of each month at our Team Night. Team Night is at 7pm at Mosaic and is open to everyone and is a time of team building, worship, and personal development.
MosaicSD Volunteer Staff have done the following:
-Made a focused commitment to Christ.
-Have made a public confession of faith through baptism by immersion** (must have made a focused commitment to Christ first).
-Connected to a Community Group or Ministry Team.
-Have completed “The Cross,” “The Pilgrimage” and “The Covenant” seminars.
-Embrace the Core Values, Core Convictions and Staff Commitments.-
-Be commissioned at MosaicSD Leadership Advance.
If you have done these and would like to be commissioned, please email Brandon@MosaicSD.org.

Every follower of Jesus grows in Christ-like character.
The Bible is God’s authoritative word to us.
Jesus is the only hope for a lost and broken world.
The local church is God’s agent for redemptive change.
The Body of Christ:
Every follower of Christ is called and gifted by God to serve the Body and seek the Lost.
The Church is called to bring a wholistic witness to the world through both word and action.
Our Volunteer Staff commit to invest their lives in four areas, known as the “Staff Commitments.”
Invest your passions – Honor God by following Christ personally and passionately. Your reputation is Christ’s reputation and the church’s reputation.
Invest your service – Participate in the life of the congregation through genuine worship, sharing, learning, and serving.
Invest your resources – Support the Gospel here and worldwide by tithing (10% of your income) and then by giving more as the Lord leads. Invest your time, skills, talents, and gifts in and through the church.
Invest your relationships – Develop authentic loving relationships with other in the church and establish significant relationships with those who do not know Jesus.
