Our Ministries

The launching of our Yes M.A.A.M. Initiative (YES to Ministry Action Awareness Month)  was held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays in January.  The objective of which was to: 1) Increase Ministry participation by 25% across all ministries in 2014; 2) Create information brochures for every ministry; 3) Help our members become more aware of our ministries.

Currently, we have a total of 20 ministries at Olivet including: Pastoral, Trustee, Sanctuary Beautification Ministry, Discipleship, Buildings and Grounds and Communion Table, just to name a few.  Feel free to visit each page of the sampling of ministries listed below for an in-depth description and function.
