Below is a list of teams we offer at Mount Pleasant: 


AMBASSADOR MINISTRY
The Ambassador Ministry Team includes our First Impressions team, our Greeters and Section Hosts, Parking Hosts, and our Guest Connections volunteers. Weekend availability is needed.


CHANGE THE WORLD WEEK
Each year in the spring, we dedicate one week (two weekends) to help make a difference in our world. In the past we have packaged over 400,000 meals that were sent to our missions partners overseas, built five homes that were given to families and most recently came together to do multiple service projects in the IMPACT Old Southside neighborhood. A couple of thousand people get involved every year during Change the World week here at MPCC. 


CHILDREN’S MINISTRY
Reaching children from infant through grade four, Bibleopolis is our interactive and engaging children’s ministry. Our unique environment is designed to echo the streets of Jerusalem and mirror the countryside of Galilee. We want our children to have the opportunity to “Grow up like Jesus!”

The Children’s Ministry Team needs people who can serve as preschool and elementary group assistants, give care to our nursery and toddler aged children, and serve at the Bibleopolis Welcome Center. 


CHIN MINISTRY
The Chin people are refugees on the southside of Indianapolis who have come to the US from Myanmar because of religious persecution. Currently, we have a service each Sunday at 1pm in our chapel for our Chin believers to meet, worship, and experience God together in their native language. There are a variety of ways to help minister to and to serve the Chin people. 


CONGREGATIONAL CARE
We provide care for those who are experiencing difficulties in life. Life gets hard sometimes, and we as a church want to be an encouragement and a support system when those trials occur. We offer a variety of services to our congregation in those challenging seasons. Areas can include home and hospital visits, funerals, weddings and premarital counseling. Be part of this team by assisting with home and hospital visits.


COMMUNION AND OFFERING
At MPCC, we share communion and receive the offering every week. We need a host of volunteers to help us distribute the elements of communion and receive the weekend offering. Other opportunities are available to help process the offering each week.


COMMUNITY LIFE CENTER
Our Community Life Center located right across the street is an amazing workout facility and has something for everyone. Our space includes two full size basketball courts, a weight and cardio room, fitness classes, an elevated indoor track, a game room, youth along with personal training.

We need coaches, assistants, child care personnel, fitness instructors, CLIMB (our ministry to those with Parkinson’s Disease) assistant volunteers, practice supervisors, game day supervisors, referees (must be licensed), people to run the score board and a host of other opportunities that relate to sports and fitness.


FINANCIAL FREEDOM
Our mission for the Financial Freedom Ministry is to provide Biblically based financial resources for our members to become excellent stewards (managers) of God’s money. No matter where you are in your stewardship journey, we offer classes, seminars, and coaching to help you become a better manager of the resources God has entrusted to you. Help others by becoming a financial coach, or overseeing any of our classes, seminars or workshops.


HANDS AND FEET
A service ministry of our Women’s Ministry that reaches out in many ways through special projects.


HOME GROUPS MINISTRY
As Christians we’re called to be disciples and to make disciples.  This command comes from Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20) and it is as simple as following Him. However, we know it is not always easy. One of the ways we strive to accomplish discipleship is through our Home Groups. We should never be alone in our quest to become more like Jesus.You can host and lead a Home Group in your home or another suitable location for a season of Home Groups. Home Groups utilize a sermon based curriculum developed each week specifically for a deeper study of the weekend sermon series.


IMPACT CENTER
This is a place to help make an IMPACT in the lives of over 300 families weekly providing food and clothing to the greater Greenwood community. Help is needed stocking shelves, sorting clothes, interviewing candidates, sharing a devotion, providing snacks, and serving on the hospitality team. There is so much to do throughout the week to prepare for our IMPACT Thursdays, and IMPACT Saturdays. This is a great place to serve if you want to reach those beyond the walls of the church.


IMPACT OLD SOUTHSIDE
We have a ministry that is just beginning in the old southside neighborhood in Indianapolis near downtown. Working with other agencies in the area, we are beginning to reach those living in that community, meeting needs, and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.


NIGHT TO SHINE
Teaming up with the Tim Tebow foundation, MPCC is a host for Night to Shine—an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love for people with special needs. It takes several hundred volunteers to serve at this event. You can be a “buddy” to one who has special needs, you can serve a meal during the event, take pictures, or host in many different ways.


ORPHAN CARE
The purpose of Defend 82:3 is to IMPACT the world one child, one family, and one opportunity at a time. The Defend 82:3 Ministry seeks to accomplish its mission by equipping, enlisting, and empowering the people of Mount Pleasant Christian Church to defend vulnerable children domestically and internationally through adoption, foster care, and global orphan care opportunities. You can get involved in this area of ministry by attending one of our events, and learning about the many aspects of global orphan care.


STUDENT MINISTRY TEAM (5TH-8TH GRADES)
We have three weekly worship services for our 5th through 8th graders that meet in our Student Ministries Center, located on the south side of Mount Pleasant Christian Church’s Community Life Center. Our fifth and sixth graders meet alongside our seventh and eighth graders. Our services include: games, music, prayer, videos, fun, communion, Bible teaching and a large amount of time in small groups, the core of our weekend services. We also have a variety of activities outside of the weekend from NERF Wars, to Bubble Soccer to weekend retreats, conferences and service projects. Be a part of the Welcome Team or serve on the tech team. Small group leaders and assistants, small group coaches, administrative leaders, and special events leaders all are needed to help share the faith with our students.


STUDENT MINISTRY TEAM (9TH-12TH GRADES)
The transition from early adolescence to young adult is important to us. More than equipping students for their futures, we are equipping them with more knowledge of God’s Word, a better understanding of themselves, and where they specifically fit into God’s Kingdom. The High School Ministry at Mount Pleasant provides a place for students to transform into adults while providing a firm foundation for a strong, lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ. Engage is filled with worship, fun, games, small group learning and a teaching time by High School Pastor Matt Pineda. Engage meets every Sunday from 6-7:30pm in the Student Ministries Center and is open to all students in 9th through 12th grade. Small group leaders, tech team personnel, welcome team, special events sponsors, and CDL licensed drivers needed for our senior high ministry.


SAFETY
Help us provide an atmosphere of safety and security during our services and special events.


SINGLE ADULT MINISTRY
Our Single Adult Ministry is for single adults who are ages 30+ years and are committed to living the Christian lifestyle. The focus of this ministry is Bible study, service projects, social events, and friendship. Join this team by coordinating and leading Home Groups, group outings, and more.


SOUL CARE & COUNSELING
Our Soul Care Ministry provides an oasis of hope for times of weariness and brokenness on your journey. We offer a variety of helping relationships and healing communities to help you acquire and display the character of Christ in the midst of the difficulties, problems, or pain in which you find yourself.

You can join this team by helping lead different types of groups, or even mentoring other married couples.


WOMEN’S MINISTRY
No matter your age, and no matter where you are in your walk with faith, MPCC Women’s Ministry has a place for you to get connected, build relationships, deepen your faith, and grow in your relationship with Christ. Our Women’s Ministry addresses issues specific to women through Bible studies, mentoring groups, special events, and service opportunities. MPCC women’s theme verse is from Proverbs 31:25 which says, “She is clothed in strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.” A woman of God lives a confident, God honoring life that brings glory to Him. Bible Study leaders, child care workers during women’s events, special service projects, making hats and blankets for chemotherapy patients, and retreat and special events leaders are all part of our Women’s Ministry volunteer needs.


WORSHIP & ARTS MINISTRY
Here at MPCC, we embrace compelling worship. We believe that genuine, heartfelt worship is the Biblical response of grateful hearts to a loving and merciful God. Our worship team and band helps us to experience a quality worship experience on the weekends. Auditions required for positions on this team.


WORSHIP PROGRAMMING MINISTRY
We utilize the latest in audio, lighting, video, and media programming for our worship services here at MPCC. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes at our services, and it only happens with the help of staff and volunteers who are willing to go above and beyond at making the message accessible and providing the best environment for worship and the message.


YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY
Our Young Adult ministry is designed to help the continual spiritual growth of those ages 18-29ish. We want young adults connected to the Word of God, the Local Church, and Each Other. The primary way we accomplish these goals is through our Young Adult Home Groups. These meet during our Home Group seasons but are age specific. Through the study of God’s Word, participation in church, and regularly meeting in and out of group settings we engage in relational discipleship. You can host and lead a Home Group in your home or another suitable location for a season of Home Groups. Home Groups utilize a sermon based curriculum developed each week specifically for a deeper study of the weekend sermon series.
