Volunteering at the Oasis Church
Do you want to serve as part of our Dream Team of volunteers?
Most of us want to make a difference in this world. We want to make an impact on our communities and be a part of something bigger than ourselves. God has gifted each one of us with a unique set of skills & talents. Jesus himself said that He did not come to be served, but to serve others. When you make an eternal investment by volunteering your time & talent at your local church, you will discover the key to unlocking a life of influence & change.
1 Peter 4:10: “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms”.
There are a multitude of areas where you can use these gifts to serve your church family here at Oasis. We are including descriptions of the Dream Teams below for your reference. Please keep in mind that some teams do require church membership, background checks, and/or may have training & skill requirements.
The link below will take you to the form to fill out so that the various team captains can let you know about the application process for that particular Dream Team.
We look forward to serving alongside you here at Oasis!

Oasis Youth is the dynamic youth ministry of the Oasis Church. Culturally diverse and spiritually charged, it is a place where young people from every race, color, and creed can come find the destiny and purpose God has for their lives. Velocity meetings are filled with worship, prayer, laughter, tears, lights, dance and dramatic production as students learn to serve God, grow in their faith, and make a difference in the community.
Oasis Young Adults
Oasis Young Adults, or OYA, is a community of young adults ages 19-29 who are passionate about God's love, restoration, and freedom. Every week, we come together to learn and celebrate how our lives are changing as we follow Christ. We meet in homes across the city, share a meal, and discuss how to connect what we hear on Sundays with how we live our lives. Beyond Thursday nights, you'll find OYA living life to the fullest, volunteering at Oasis, serving our city in outreach events, and enjoying community with activities such as movie marathons, hiking trips, and Capture The Flag game nights.
No matter where you are in your walk with Christ, OYA is a community where you can find a smiling face and inspiration to grow. We believe in second chances, growth, and redemption stories. Oasis Young Adults are a thriving community of world changers who are rising above the "millennial' stereotype as we make a difference in Music City.
