Shepherding - Adult Ministry

Serve Through 

Our purpose at NEHBC is to make disciples. These ministries are on the front lines of intentional and deliberate disciple-making among various age groups and seasons of life.





Adult LifeGroup Leaders are responsible for teaching God’s Word to their class and modeling holiness in their daily walk with the Lord. In addition to these primary responsibilities, the LifeGroup Leader is responsible for organizing a class environment to ensure that all class members feel connected through fellowship, cared for physically, mentally, and spiritually, and are engaged in evangelism both corporately and individually. The LifeGroup Leader will connect the LifeGroup members with the vision, mission, and ministries of NEHBC. An application, interview, and training are required for this position.

lifegroup apprentice leader

Adult LifeGroup Apprentice Leaders assist the primary LifeGroup Leaders by filling in as a substitute teacher as needed and working with the Associate Pastor of Adults to complete their preparation to lead a new class as they are formed. LifeGroup Apprentice Leaders may be assigned to an individual class or may serve as an apprentice to multiple classes to fill in as necessary. An application, interview, and training are required for this position.


lifegroup class director

An Adult LifeGroup Class Director assists the LifeGroup Leader by completing some or all of the following activities in LifeGroups, as determined by the LifeGroup leader: complete the class attendance and update the class roster each week; ensure that announcements from NEHBC staff are communicated to the class weekly; assist with coordination of class social events; collect and track prayer requests; and assist with coordination of hospital visits, meals, and transportation in the event of member illness. Approval by the LifeGroup Leader is required and training is provided for this role.


lifestuff support team

LifeStuff is a special topical Bible study series that takes place during the Fall and Spring semesters at NEHBC. Volunteers are needed to serve every Sunday night to support these Bible studies. Volunteers would be responsible for preparing coffee, setting up check-in machines, helping LifeStuff attendees check-in, and then cleaning up the coffee supplies. Volunteers would need to serve both semesters and would serve Sunday evenings from 5:15-6:15 PM. You will be required to serve at least 6 shifts in the fall and 6 shifts in the Spring.


men's ministry support team

This ministry assists widows, single moms, shut-ins, members who are limited physically, and members in need of extra assistance by helping with yard work, minor home repairs, home maintenance, and other issues as needed. Experience is not required! Training with a team can be arranged.


decision counselors

During our worship services, there are opportunities for people to make important personal decisions such as: accepting Christ as their Lord and Savior; requesting baptism or church membership; desiring to connect with a LifeGroup; prayer, etc. Decision Counselors help and guide people during these times. 

We need men and women in both services who can assist with this ministry. Each Sunday that you are able to serve we would ask you to wait down front close to the pastors as the congregation responds to the message. While this is a vital ministry, it would not be considered someone’s primary point of service as these volunteers serve on a rotational basis. An application, interview, and training by the team leader are required to serve as a Decision Counselor.
