Serve Our Church
Your involvement at Indianapolis Baptist Temple matters because your service really makes a difference. The opportunities listed below describe many of the service opportunities where we need your help. Please look around and then contact the leader for the ministry for which you would like to volunteer.
Welcome and Hospitality
Imagine joining a team that has fun creating a welcoming environment for our visitors. By joining the Welcome & Hospitality team you can help to create an environment where each person feels welcome and comfortable.
Kids and Teens
Our IBT kids and IBT Teens programs exist to introduce children to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help them live out the gospel in their lives. You can help us do so by teaching them a Bible-centered curriculum and facilitating the creation of Christ-centered relationships. 
Adult Ministries
Discipleship is an important part of our Christian walk. Our Brothers and Sisters need to be discipled by other Christians in order to discover more of who Jesus is and how to live out the gospel. You can be a part of this ministry by discipling other believers.
Between the community events, missions, and our van ministry IBT works tirelessly to spread the Gospel outside our four walls. Do you have a heart to reach the community and beyond? Our outreach opportunities are the perfect fit for you. 
We need handy people like you to help take care of our building! From vacuuming the floors to shoveling the parking lot, this all is important in keeping our church up and running. 
Do you have a passion for writing? A keen eye for photography? Do you play an instrument or sing? Or maybe even have a knack for audio visual? Join a team that embraces the creative side of spreading Gods Word.

IBT supports Life Centers by holding fundraisers and taking up offerings for their organization multiple times a year.
A GriefShare support group is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Through this 13-week group, you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability—and gain solid support each step of the way.
DivorceCare allows your church to become a source of care and support for people who have experienced separation or divorce. This 13-week, video-based support group provides practical tools for coping and points people to Christ for healing and hope.

In 2022, we distributed over $415 million worth of food.
