Want to be a online worship host?

Front Door LogoWe’re looking for mature Christian men and women interested in serving as hosts on a weekly basis in our Front Door online worship community.

Worship hosts play a critical role at Front Door. We’re seeking to invite families impacted by disability for an interactive experience involving online chat, exposure to sound and engaging Biblical teaching and the opportunity to make connections that can grow into relationships with mature Christians who can provide prayer, encouragement and help in facilitating opportunities for inclusion in worship and other church activities taking place in the physical presence of other Christ-followers.

Online Church 2Hosts greet and welcome guests to our scheduled, online church services. Hosts facilitate conversations in the online chat window during the services, handle private chat conversations (when necessary), deal with any inappropriate comments, refer sensitive situations to appropriate experts and forward information to guests and Key Ministry staff as requested.  Hosts may follow up with guests during the week who make specific prayer requests, and help connect guests to resources available through Key Ministry, other like-minded ministry organizations or churches in the guest’s home region. Hosts are expected to use available social media tools to help promote the worship experiences in which they serve, and are responsible for cultivating a sense of Christian community among those regularly connecting online during their assigned worship hour(s).

Our expectations for worship hosts include…

  • Demonstrable spiritual maturity.
  • Experience serving as staff or a key volunteer in a local church OR a professional caring for persons with disabilities OR a family member caring for someone with a disability.
  • Ability to serve a minimum of one hour per week at a regular time
  • A Facebook account and broadband internet access.
