Do you like people? Are you friendly? Do you like to help folks make natural, organic connections when they enter a room of people they don’t know? Then your ministry might just be hospitality. Our hospitality team will make sure that all who enter our doors are treated with radical hospitality and overwhelming acceptance. You will guide and direct people from the cars into our cafe, and from our cafe into our sanctuary, and from our sanctuary to their seats. It is our goal at Eastside Church to practice such radical hospitality, that even if the message is boring and the guitars are out of tune, folks will still be persuaded to come back.


Are you a morning person? Do you love to arrive just a little bit early and set the mood? Do you love to serve folks with a smile on your face? Do you love the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and a toasted bagel (don’t we all)? Then you just might be an ECB (Eastside Church Barista). As a part of our radical practice of hospitality, we want to greet our community with two of the best smells in the world (toasted carbohydrates and brewing java) as they enter our worship space.


Are you not a morning person but still want to serve in the coffee ministry? Do you understand the importance of a good cup of joe in the morning, but don’t want to get up early to make it? Then consider serving with our hospitality ministry by coming into church late Saturday afternoon or evening to set up the coffee so our ECB’s can turn it on in the morning.


Do you like wearing reflective vests, playing with walkie-talkies and directing people? Do you like creating a welcoming environment even before people walk into the church? Then being part of the parking team could be a good fit for you. Each week guests and regulars need guided into the designated parking lots around East Atlanta Village. We want to greet our community and provide a welcoming presence even before we’ve had the chance to say “hello”.
