Volunteer Crews

Welcome Crews (Team Aloha)

Whether visiting for the first time or for the hundredth, we want everyone to feel God’s love. It’s critically important for people to feel like they belong. We want them to know they are loved and accepted. Team Aloha is all about breaking out the red carpet for our 1st time guests so that they have an incredible experience. Come and join us, and help us spread the aloha!

Worship Band

If you have a passion for seeing people connect with God through music and have musical or singing gifts, the worship band might be a good fit for you. Worshiping God through music is an integral part of what we do to honor Him and show how much we love and appreciate Him. It also creates an environment for people to connect with Him in a very real way.


The Hospitality team loves people. Whether it’s feeding them donuts or pancakes, coffee, tea, or just greeting them with a friendly smile and good conversation, the goal is to make people feel welcome and accepted.
Sound fun? It is!

Food Pantry

Our Food Pantry is helping meet the physical needs of our community in tangible ways every week. Every Saturday from 10:30 - 11:30, anyone in our community can come to our Soquel location and get free food to feed their family. Volunteers arrive at 9:30AM to get set up. This is a great way to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community!

Office Help

We rely heavily on volunteers to help with office tasks. From special events like our yearly Christmas Outreach to helping weekly to prepare for our Sunday services, there are many of ways to get plugged in, both on the weekends and throughout the week.

Sound and Service Slides

We have a great sound + slides team who is responsible for making sure the worship and teaching is heard and seen by all. It’s a very practical and easy way to serve for people who understand technology. We’ll teach you so don’t feel like you need to be an expert.

Kids and Youth

Kids and Youth are a major focus here at Tradewinds. We love our kids and want to create a safe and fun place for them to grow up and learn about God! We are passionate about helping them find and follow Jesus. We do this in fun and interactive ways. Do you share that passion? We have multiple ways to get involved - teaching, working with parents to get their children checked in, taking care of our babies, or helping our Kids Director with administration.

I'll Do Anything

A lot of work goes into getting ready for our Sunday services and keeping our campuses running. It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to make it happen. Setting up and tearing down chairs, tables for events; cleaning and caring for our campuses takes time and effort from a team of volunteers. It’s all part of creating a place where people can connect with God.

Serve in Our Church

Use your unique gifts to help build the Kingdom.

We are so grateful for all those who serve. Truth is it's truly a blessing to get to serve and the best way to make a connection with others who want to give back. 

Volunteer FAQ

How do I volunteer?

Just sign up or talk to a campus pastor. We have so many different ways for you to get involved depending on what time and day or availability. Even serving just once per month for an hour or two makes a huge difference! 

How do I volunteer with kids and students?

Creating an environment of safety is critical, so anyone who wants experience the blessing of teaching and serving the next generation must go through a process that involves and (1) an application, (2) an interview and (3) a live-scan fingerprint background check. If you are interested, please talk with a teacher or someone on our kids staff!
