Athens Church Volunteer Summit

Athens Church would not exist if it weren’t for the unbelievable volunteers—that’s you!—who warmly welcome every person, make each environment feel safe, and show the our city what it means to say “Athens, I Love You!” You’re the glue that not only makes this place sticky but also holds it all together. Our team is genuinely and sincerely grateful you choose to invest your time and energy serving here.

As our team has been praying and looking ahead to 2021, we felt like it was the right time to bring together all volunteers and leaders from all ministry environments—from Waumba Land to Production—for the first ever Athens Church Volunteer Summit. This one-night event was a special evening of impactful worship, intimate prayer, and inspiring teaching. Our special guest speaker was pastor and author Jon Tyson. Below you’ll find the messages from each session for you to watch and share. Our hope is they challenge you to grow in your faith.

One more thing our church is doing together is reading through Acts, Romans, and 1 Corinthians together over the course of three months. You can find the reading plan and follow along by clicking the button below.
