Meet our Ministry and Worship Team

The Ministry and Worship Team of Zoar Baptist Church is a vital and integral part of our operations! This team is made up of both paid staff and volunteers who work to minister to our church and community, keep the day to day operations of the church going, and play a major role in leading our worship each week. Our Ministry and Worship Team works alongside each member of our Zoar, we believe that "Every Member is a Minister".
