We need all sorts of folks to do all sorts of things. No matter your skill set, your abilities, or your passions, we can use you!
Like to sort supplies, make food, or fill out paper work?
Serving opportunities for RippleFX vary based upon your skills and what we need! You can expect to do things like helping to prepare food, set up and clean up various supplies, and help facilitate events and activities. Other opportunities do exist based on your interests. If you have a love for music, technology, planning, or anything at all and you have an interest in helping, we just might have an opportunity for you!
We have trips all throughout the year! Our summer is especially busy with trips every couple weeks, but our fall and spring are also full of different RFX experiences and opportunities to serve.
We would love to hear from you! If you have questions that need clarification, please contact John Moores. (330)-354-5437
It takes a lot of work beforehand to make our trips happen! Whether we're making schedules, contacting groups, sorting supplies, or buying more supplies, we are very busy ahead of trips making sure that everything is set up properly.
Believe it or not, when you get a big group of students and leaders together for a trip, there is some work required to make everything go smoothly. During various trips, we prepare food, set up outdoor events and activities, and clean up, among other things.
We love new volunteers! Contact us or speak with your group leader if you are interested in volunteering with us on an upcoming trip.
We offer two different type of internship experiences.
May through July.
School Year Internships.
August to May.
A training and proving ground for emerging church leaders.
During your Protégé year, you will accumulate valuable experience, coaching, and knowledge that will prepare you for stepping into the next phase of your God-given calling.
Applications for the 2020-2021 Protégé year are now available and are due March 30, 2020.
The NCC Protégé Program is a year-long intensive spiritual growth, leadership development, and ministry immersion experience at National Community Church in Washington, DC.
We focus on three core areas: character, community and calling.
As an NCC Protégé, you will:
from some of the most innovative thinkers and creators in ministry
in the day-to-day activities of church staff culture
as a leader
Lay a firm foundation
for a lifelong pursuit of the passion and vision that God has placed on your life
The program is geared toward young leaders who are post-college (or equivalent) up to 30 years old.
Our students are not the soon-to-be or future Church, they are the Church now. Our heart is to equip students for the work of ministry today, believing that age isn’t a disqualifier. On the Youth Ministry Team, you’ll gain exposure to what it looks like to engage youth in the city, develop as a communicator and pioneer innovative ways of doing youth ministry.
As a protégé, you will choose a ministry department to focus your efforts throughout the year.
In addition to your department work, you will attend weekly protégé huddles. These huddles are led by Joel Buckner (Program Director). You will also have the opportunity to meet with Mark Batterson (Lead Pastor), Heather Zempel (Discipleship Pastor) and many influential leaders throughout the year. Huddles offer ongoing discipleship training and leadership development in a small group environment that focuses on topics such as Leading Yourself Well, Character Killers, Dreaming God-sized Dreams, Leadership Rhythms, and Dynamics of Teamwork.
