Serving Opportunities

We believe that serving others is an integral part of the Christian walk. At Convergence, there are many different avenues to get involved – take a look at the list below, and help us create and grow!

Worship • Have a musical talent that needs a Godly outlet?  With some fairly diverse music sets and arrangements, there are ways to serve on our worship team beyond the “traditional” approach. (worship@convergeoakland.org)

KidsTown • We believe that the next generation is critically important to God, as well as the community.  We’re looking for teachers and volunteers to support KidsTown. (kidstown@convergeoakland.org)

TotsTown  • TotsTown is a ministry for our toddlers ages 1-3.  Parents are welcome to drop their children off or stay with them in the TotsTown room during service.  For more information or special requests, please contact totstown@convergeoakland.org.

Hospitality • Snacks and refreshments on Sundays don’t appear out of thin air.  The hospitality team organizes the spread every Sunday and can always use welcoming and helping hands on deck! (hospitality@convergeoakland.org)

Tech • Tech ministry has many different opportunities to serve, including slide projection and sound board.  We’re also looking for people interested in social media, web tech, and podcasting! (admin@convergeoakland.org)

Community Outreach • We connect with the community in many different ways.  If you’re looking to get involved in our next service project, look no further and contact our Ministry Director at  (joe@convergeoakland.org)

Finance/Administration • Church doesn’t happen without a massive amount of behind-the-scenes work.  If you’re gifted in administration, accounting, or desktop publishing, consider serving on the Administration team! (admin@convergeoakland.org)

Community Involvement

Family Night (monthly) • In partnership with the City of Oakland and the DeFremery Recreation Center, we’ve been hosting monthly Family Nights for the West Oakland community with free dinner, followed by a time of activities, games, and prizes.  Contact Becca at rebecca@convergeoakland.org to get involved!

Excel Reading Clinics (weekly) • We partner with the Faith Network of the East Bay to train volunteers to provide tutoring at Martin Luther King Elementary in West Oakland on Fridays from 12:45-2:45pm. Tutoring runs throughout the school year.  Suresh can tell you more about it! suresh@convergeoakland.org

Operation Christmas Child (seasonal) • Each November, we participate in Operation Christmas Child and send out shoe boxes full of presents for kids around the world.  Contact Joe for details. joe@convergeoakland.org

Day in the Park (yearly) • Our largest event, serving on avereage 800 people in West Oakland  is a memorable time featuring free BBQ food along with popcorn, snow cones, a nacho bar and more!  We do activities such as arts & crafts, games, face painting, and jump houses and it truly has been a really fun Day in the Park! This event typically takes place in the month of May- stay tuned! You can contact our Ministry Director, Joe at joe@convergeoakland.org for information.
