Who We Are

Our Ministry of Service team members play an essential role in the life and experience of our wonderful church community.

We refer to it as a Ministry of ‘Sacred’ Service because it:

  • supports our natural desire to give and be generous
  • allows us to give time and energy to a place we support and love
  • gives us a chance to meet and connect with others
  • supports Mile Hi Church to continue to thrive
  • allows us to grow and transform through the selfless spiritual practice of service

Spring 2017

“Our Ministry of Service members are the backbone of our Mile Hi spiritual community! They do much more than tasks ... although all their tasks are super important to the effectiveness of our services and programs. More than anything, our MOS members spread love, spiritual energy and JOY! They see the face of God in all they service and activate the awareness of Spirit in all they do. They are all ANGELS!”

Dr. Roger Teel, Senior Minister & Spiritual Director
