Where Can I servePeople Website Banner

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Community AME Zion Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads. Community members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as cleaning the church, to preparing the church bulletins.

Mission Outreach & Evangelism

Community AME Zion Church is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom in this community and throughout Vancouver/Portland Area. We have to start in our own backyard first. We encourage all of our members to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they go to the shelter and help with serving food or go to the homeless and handout food bags.

Music & Dance

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and dance ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in dance. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Community AME Zion Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.



The Ushers at Community AME Zion Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The Ushers are a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.


Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Community AME Zion Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.


Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Community AME Zion Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, we pray for the ministry of the Word.  Each Wednesday, members come to our Prayer Meetings and pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. The church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study

Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Community AME Zion holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service on special Sundays. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from plays, to games, to object lessons.

The Youth

Varick international Christian Youth Council

Community AME Zion Church holds the youth near and dear to our hearts. They are no longer being called the church of tomorrow because they are the church of today! They are involved in the AME Zion Church nationally and locally. Our youth range in ages 13-21. They are the Techno-Generation!
