Employment

At the Chapel, we emphasize that life is all about relationships. Our staff is made up of teams that work together--and that have a lot of fun together too!

We see ministry at the Chapel as a calling rather than a job—a calling to equip others, giving ministry away so that the diverse gifts of the Chapel family can be leveraged to make disciples. If you want to explore whether God may be calling you to vocational ministry at the Chapel, we encourage you to review our open positions and submit an application.

For more information about Williamsburg Community Chapel, please read our Statement of Faith and Employee Covenant, which all employees are required to sign.
