Here at ECF
Who are Volunteers?
ECF volunteers are members of the church who work together to serve our church body and others in the community to advance the Kingdom for Jesus.
How do I volunteer at Eugene Christian Fellowship?
We require everyone to begin by taking the10-week Alpha Course, followed by ECF 101. The Alpha Course gives everyone a chance to establish a strong foundation of faith and trust in Christ. ECF 101 explains the unique vision and values of ECF, as well as how to get involved as a volunteer and participate in a small group. Alpha and ECF 101 are currently offered 3-4 times each year. For more information on these classes contact the church offices at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541.344.3380.
