How to Serve

We believe in the power of service to change lives, so our heart as a church centers on sharing God's love with one another and our community through acts of service. It's a key way that we grow as Christians and a great way to meet others at Grandview.

Grandview offers a variety of opportunities to serve the church and larger Johnson City community. From sharing musical talents to serving in the church, to participating in city-wide activities, you connect with Grandview to share your talents!

In the Community

Appalachian Service Project

Appalachia Service Project exists to make homes warmer, safer, and drier for folks all throughout Appalachia. Grandview partners with their Johnson City Home Repair program to repair the homes of local families each month. Join the repair team or bring lunch to support them as they work!

Campus House at ETSU

There are several ways to get involved in this ministry, but our primary partnership involves bringing food to their weekly gathering international students, World Cafe, and getting to know the students.

Cornerstone Village South Assisted Living and Memory Care

Grandview supports the Cornerstone Village South Assisted Living and Memory Care facility just across University Parkway by providing a consistent and thoughtful presence each week. You can join to help lead Sunday morning worship service, play music for a Sunday morning worship service, or visit with Assisted Living and Memory Care residents through the week.

Family Promise

Family Promise is a local organization that provides housing and support to local homeless families.

Food Pantry

Grandview maintains a food pantry to distribute and share with Johnson City residents in need. The food pantry is open Thursday mornings, 9:00-10:00. You can donate nonperishable food items to the pantry or welcome guests and distribute food to pantry applicants during the week.

Interyear Fellowship

Grandview often helps with home and yard maintenance for the Interyear house. There are also opportunities to visit with the fellows, share wisdom with them, provide meals for them, and gather for coffee or games with them.

Love JC

Grandview joins dozens of local churches and organizations in a city-wide day of service called LoveJC. Grandview needs participants to serve, volunteers to recruit participants, and volunteers to help coordinate with organizations that plan each event.


One way that Grandview seeks to extend our hospitality and engage the residents of Johnson City is by making rides available for people who would be otherwise unable to make it to Grandview. Join the driving team or ride along on a van to get to know our neighbors!

South Side Elementary

Grandview partners with South Side Elementary to support and enrich their work of caring for the children in our city.

In the Church

Canopy Group Leadership

Small groups, what we call Canopies, are primary way Grandview people connect with one another. If you’re willing to lead a group in regular Bible study, prayer, or any other community-building gathering, we need you!

Children’s Ministry Volunteer

randview offers a wide range of programming for children and youth to help them grow in their love of God, fulfill their calling to follow Jesus by serving in ways that are appropriate for their age, and connect with each other and with adults in the church. That can’t happen with a lot of volunteer help! We’re always looking for teachers, classroom assistants, and people who just want to hang out with our kids and youth.

Cityview Setup Team

Grandview is one church with two campuses. The Cityview campus rents The Gallery above Southern Craft BBQ in downtown Johnson City. Because we rent the space, we need to setup the room for worship every Sunday, and put away all of our equipment when we’re finished. We need lots of help to make that happen!

Financial Support

One crucial ways we can serve and grow as disciples of Jesus is through financial giving. At Grandview, your giving keeps the lights on, pays staff salaries, and many other things we associate with keeping a local church functioning week-to-week.


Visiting a new church can be confusing and anxiety-inducing. That’s why we have a team of volunteers, the Connections Team, dedicated to greeting newcomers and helping them navigate our facilities. Connections Team members help others find friends, service opportunities, and small groups.

Ministry Teams

If your gifts are more administrative or visionary in nature, or if you just prefer behind-the-scenes work, consider serving on one of our ministry teams. These teams handle everything from designing holiday worship services, to organizing new small groups, to keeping the grounds clean and beautiful, to finding ways to encourage missions and missionaries Grandview supports.

Worship Service

At Grandview, we encourage participation in leading our worship services. If you’re a gifted musician, a confident reader, a devotional thinker/writer, or someone who enjoys the audio/visual side of the worship service, there is a place for you to serve!
