Creating a Movement

As we act, we are guided by our mission statement “To create a movement of gospel transformation through multiple congregations”. This statement guides our efforts in two specific ways as we seek to live missionally in the world around us. We invite you to start living missionally. If you have questions about how to get involved please email Matt Ockerman.

  • Gospel Transformation

    We believe it is a primary responsibility of the church to “equip the saints for works of ministry” (Ephesians 4). That means we focus much of our energy on training our people to understand who they are, what they have, and how to leverage all of that in order to impact the places where God has specifically called them.

  • Multiple Congregations

    We believe God has called us as congregations to the neighborhoods and communities, where we meet. We desire to step into these areas not only to serve as a place for spiritual growth but for emotional and physical growth as well. Its a tangible place for us to be the physical representation of our God to individuals in these communities.

Ways to Serve at 12 south

These are opportunities where we invite all of our people to live missionally – as youth, families and groups.

Kidtown Team

Serving in our children’s ministry not only blesses the children but also the families of Midtown 12 South. Those volunteering in Kidtown serve typically once every 5-6 weeks (more often if you desire) during one of the Sunday services. The ministry cares for nursery-5th grade in one of several classes. Sarah Norberg, 12 South Kidtown Director, would love to help get you connected in serving in Kidtown.

The Welcome & Visual Team

The Welcome Team tends to be one of the first interactions someone attending service has as they arrive. Those serving on the Welcome Team help greet those arriving for service, assist visitors with any questions and also help find open seats as the sanctuary fills up. If you are interested in serving on the Welcome Team, reach out to Matt Ockerman.

The Visuals Team runs the slides on the screen at all three services. No particular technology skills are required. If you have a heart for assisting the congregation as they enter to worship each Sunday, reach out to Matt Ockerman.

Worship Team

If you are a musician or sound technician, Matt Ockerman would love to meet you to see if there is a place to serve on the Worship Team. Email Matt Ockerman to set up a meeting.


Do you have a heart for seeing Middle & High School students GROW as spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and socially mature disciples of Jesus and then GO into their schools, homes, congregations, and world as Spirit-led disciple-makers for the Kingdom of God?

If the answer is yes, please consider serving with Midtown Youth as a weekly student small group leader, regular worship leader, or occasional support team member.

Contact Taylor Kelly, Executive Director of Youth, for more information!


As we equip, God leads members of our congregations into specific areas, people groups and intervention strategies. If you would like to connect with others who might share your passions:
