Volunteer

Spring Baptist Church attributes its success in presenting the gospel message to all ages to the amazing leadership, example, and commitment of its volunteers. The volunteers are made up of God-called individuals who take their personal ministries seriously and approach their jobs with integrity and dedication. If you are called by God to volunteer at Spring Baptist Church, we welcome you.
