They love to meet new people and answer questions about the church, while sharing how newcomers can get connected and feel more at home.
Attending a large church for the first time can be a bit overwhelming. The Welcome Center team knows this, and serving newcomers in the Welcome Center is one very practical way of making their first visit a pleasant one while passing on the simple kindness and hospitality of Jesus.
Every Sunday you will see the Welcome Center staffed by a team of dedicated volunteers ready to greet new people and answer any questions they might have about Vineyard Boise and their current needs as a visitor.

For more details about the ministry opportunities at the Welcome Center, you can contact Elliott Sheffield, our Welcome Center Coordinator.
If you can spare a segment of time before, after or during a service on one Sunday month, there are many different shifts available at the Welcome Center.
First and foremost, we want the Welcome Center staffed with volunteers who love to meet new people, and have a friendly and welcoming manner. Our heart is not to fill our guests with so much information their minds explode. Instead, we want them to know they are welcome, and we want to know a bit of their story. As our gifted Coordinator Elliott says, “It isn’t the information we give them, or the gift or pamphlets on the church, but how our guests feel when they leave.” If they feel loved, heard, and welcomed, they will be back. Along with training that Elliott and the team provide, you will be encouraged to attend our Vineyard 101 class (Welcome to the Vineyard Family) so you have a better grasp of Vineyard Boise, who we are as a fellowship, and the myriad of ministry opportunities available through the life of the church.
