What are Serve Teams?

Serve Teams is the strategy of YTBC to include all members in some area of service.  We believe that God has specifically gifted every believer with a spiritual gift to be used in the ministry of the local church.  These teams will provide members an opportunity to plug in and serve God through His church!
