Ministry Teams

Everything that happens at BRVC is brought to life through the dedicated work of volunteers who serve faithfully, using their time and talent to help others connect with God and grow in relationship with Him and with other believers. We encourage you to find a ministry you’re passionate about and contact that leader to find out how you can serve.

Children’s Ministry

Our goal is to connect children through worship and the telling of God’s word.

We have a dynamic children ministry for kids K-6th grade. Our kids are released to go to children’s church after worship. Please know that you are our welcomed guest, and we hope that you and your children have a wonderful experience here at BRVC. Our team works hard to create a safe and meaningful environment.

Connection Team


Greeters are the first contact people have with BRVC, and play a key role in a visitor’s first impression. We welcome people as they come into our services, hand out bulletins, and help with information and directions. We guide new people to the Connection Center for more information and bless people as they leave the service.

Connection Center

The Connection Center is our hub for information. We work closely with greeters to make sure everyone is greeted with a smile and equipped with the information they need. Each week we have volunteers there to help you with questions or connect you with the information you need. Stop by the Connection Center; it’s a great place to meet new people and connect a litter deeper.

Family Life Ministry

Here at BRVC, we are serious about connecting with one another. Our Family Life Ministry facilitates connection and growth in the body through faith, fun, family, and fellowship.
If you would like to help with or have an idea for an upcoming event, please contact the desk at the Connection Center.


A huge part of our values is the training of our young people. Our nursery is available for newborn-pre-school age children.

Redemptive Life Ministries

Amy Martin:

Redemptive Life Ministries (RLM) is a healing (inner and physical) ministry here at Blue Ridge Vineyard Church. RLM ministries is aimed at bringing inner healing and deliverance, to get to the root of things that hold us back from our personal connection with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Sessions are unique to the individual receiving prayer. It is Holy Spirit-led, focusing on the root issues, not the symptoms, to restore wholeness in your relationship with the Father.


Ushers play an important role before, during, and after the service. We welcome people; help them with seating, information, and directions; take up special offerings; and collect connection cards when needed. We are always available throughout the service to meet any need that may arise.
