Serve at Life.Church Albany

One of the best ways to meet people, develop relationships, and grow as a follower of Christ is to serve the local church. And it’s not just on the weekends! Serving opportunities are available seven days a week.

Operations Team

Are you passionate about making the details count? Volunteer on the weekend, weekdays, or at special events by managing systems and processes to help people take their next step toward spiritual growth.

Host Team

You can create a welcoming environment for people to hear God’s Word. Serve on weekends, weekdays, or for special events as a greeter, usher, parking attendant, in hospitality, or behind the scenes.


LifeKids helps families raise fully devoted followers of Christ through small groups, worship, and biblical teaching for kids ages birth-6th grade. Volunteer as a small group leader, coach, emcee, and more.


Our youth ministry, Switch, meets on Wednesday night to worship and grow together. Adults can serve middle and high school students as small group leaders, mentors, or administrative support.

Connect Locally

We partner with organizations to create environments where relationships are formed, strengths are empowered, and where the love of Jesus is present. Ready to roll up your sleeves and make a difference?
