Serve at Imago Dei
The community of Imago Dei exists, on a practical level, because its people serve one another.

From providing a steaming cup of coffee to early morning gatherers to ministering to our community’s kids, volunteers make a huge impact by serving one another. Check out the many ways to get involved at Imago Dei on Sundays and during the week.

Hospitality Team

Our hospitality team creates a welcoming environment for our community each Sunday morning by brewing and setting up coffee, greeting at the doors, staffing our info desk and more. To join the team, email melanie@idcpdx.com at Central City or michelleabarnhart@gmail.com at Eastside. 

Safety Team

Imago Dei needs a few good individuals to help keep kids and families safe on Sunday mornings. This is a great way to plug in and serve the community. A background check is required for Safety volunteers. If you are interested, please email joel@idcpdx.com at Central City or will@panic.com at Eastside.

Production Team

Help make Sunday services and mid-week events happen as part of the Imago Dei Production Team!

Central City

Sound Tech – We are looking for professionally trained sound technicians for Sunday morning services and mid-week events. Not trained but interested in getting trained while helping with setup, teardown and running sound for smaller events? We’re all about it!

Producer – We are looking for keen-eyed, organized individuals to help oversee Sunday services from beginning to end, once a month. Help make sure services run smoothly – from lighting queues, to slides, to making sure the pulpit is in place. We provide training on all things production.

Slides – We are looking for volunteers to be available on a once a month basis for all three services to run slides for Sunday services. We will train you on our presentation program, and you’ll have unlimited access to delicious doughnuts. Thats right…delicious doughnuts.

For more information about joining the team, contact arts@idcpdx.com.

Eastside Gathering

Slides – Opportunities are available to serve on Sundays by running slides during the worship service. No experience is required; we will train you! For more info, contact mike.dean@idcpdx.com.

Announcements & Liturgy – We need your help sharing what’s happening during the week with the congregation on Sunday mornings. You can also lead liturgical readings, prayers, and benedictions. To get involved, contact angelica@idcpdx.com.

Sound Tech – We are seeking volunteers who have a great ear for sound to serve as sound techs. No experience is required; we will provide training on the equipment and procedures. For more information, contact mike.dean@idcpdx.com.

Worship & Liturgy Team

Our Sunday gatherings loosely walk through the traditional church calendar and follow a liturgical, purposeful and gospel-oriented order. There are a variety of creative means by which we creatively engage and lead our people in worship.

Music – A key part of our weekly worship gatherings is our ability to join together in song and declare the praises of our great God and King. At Imago Dei we are committed to creative worship in a variety of styles, recognizing that true worship isn’t about having the right style, but can be expressed in a variety of ways.

Aesthetics Team – Have a good eye for aesthetics? Be a part of our aesthetics team and help create beautiful spaces by setting up communion tables or decorating a room for a seasonal change or event. Crafty? Let us know and be a part of creating some of said aesthetic goodness!

Design – Are you a visual artist and interested in creating liturgical artwork for the church? We’d love to get to know you, and see if there is a good place to plug you in at Imago!

Brute Squad – Do you have epically strong arms? Looking for the coolest new workout? Have we got the place for you! We need strong individuals to move large things (like the great wood wall in the sanctuary, large speakers, Christmas trees, etc.) for seasonal changes and events.

For more information about joining the team, contact arts@idcpdx.com at Central City or mike.dean@idcpdx.com at Eastside.

Serve with Imago Dei Kids

Through sharing stories, serving and worshiping Christ, we get to be a place that reinforces a child’s discipleship or even where they meet Jesus for the first time.

To volunteer, sign up here.

Tech Team

Serving on this team involves arriving early to turn on computer stations used for our kids ministry check-in system, setting out pagers for our families and being available during check-in to help with any minor fixes (i.e. restarting a computer). If you are interested in serving Imago’s families in this way, please contact melanie@idcpdx.com.
