Engaging the world in mission is core to our identity as a church family. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we participate in Christ’s work of love, restoration and reconciliation in a variety of ways and places. To read more about our missional identity, click here.
For current opportunities, many of which are with one of our missional partners both local and global, see below:


As volunteer leaders with Young Life, going where kids are and building relationships has always been at the core. Leaders also engage with kids through Club (large group outreach), Campaigners (small group Bible study) and Camp (school season & summer). However, for our leaders to really thrive, we need strong MINISTRY SUPPORT TEAMS around each team of leaders. As part of a Ministry Support team, “leader care” might look like: a meal before Club, an encouraging note, help with club set-up or take down or inviting a leader over for a meal… just to name a few!

If you have a heart for adolescents and want to help support our leaders, consider joining one of our MINISTRY SUPPORT TEAMS:  

  • Young Life Teams: FCDS, Mt. Tabor, Reagan, Reynolds or West Forsyth
  • WyldLife Teams: WL West – Jefferson & Meadowlark, WL East - Summit & Wiley
  • YL College Team: Wake Forest
  • Capernaum Team: Ministry to kids with special needs
  • YoungLives Team: Ministry to teen moms

First Pres Prays Vector Art

Prayer for all Nations

We go and make disciples of all nations through prayer. Join a weekly prayer group that prays for nations and people groups who have not yet heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each week, we learn about three people groups who are unreached and lift them up in prayer. Help us pray that all people would encounter Christ, and that the Spirit would enable His followers to participate in His mission to go and make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19-20). We also pray for specific needs from our Missional Partners.

Crisis Control

Crisis Control Ministry assists neighbors in crisis with rent, mortgage, utility payments, food, and prescription medications. First Pres has been actively engaged with Crisis Control for almost 50 years! Crisis Control needs more volunteers as it takes 75 volunteers a day to keep the ministry going. Volunteer opportunities include client interviewers, food pantry and pharmacy assistance, administrative tasks, and more. You may also tangibly support them by purchasing an item from their Amazon wish list (food, household supplies). Link is here.

Thank you for considering supporting their vital ministry to help our neighbors in need. For more information, visit their website at You may also contact Paula Parks, our Missional Partner Liaison with Crisis Control.

Ukraine prayer

Ukraine Conflict Relief Fund

The Ukraine Conflict is weighing heavily in our hearts and prayers. We may be asking God how we can tangibly help those greatly affected by this conflict. In response, we have set up a First Presbyterian fund in order to raise money for two of our Missional Partners who are actively responding to this conflict. The total raised for this fund will be split 50/50 between World Renew and the Outreach Foundation.

To donate directly to this fund, visit our online giving page and select “Ukraine Conflict Relief Fund” from the dropdown menu. You may also mail in a check or drop it off at church. Make checks out to First Presbyterian Church, and in the memo line, note “Ukraine Conflict Relief Fund.”
