The mission of the MOMBC Culinary Ministry is to provide great meals and excellent service to our church family and guests. Through our hospitality and home-style cooking, we aim to leave your body and your soul well-fed. The Culinary Ministry is comprised of the Kitchen Staff who prepare the food and the Serving Staff who cater to the needs of guests in both the Fellowship Hall and the Main Dining Hall. We welcome team-oriented individuals with a passion for service to join our ministry.
The purpose of the Hospitality Ministry is to offer the love of Christ to our guests and welcome them in such a way that they would be transformed from strangers into friends. We strive to make every visitor, member, or guest feel as if they are special and that they belong at the Mountain. We work to decrease any potential stress, anxiety, and confusion for visitors and encourage their transformation from visitors to members. We are looking for people with warm smiles and engaging personalities to join us.
When you come to church on Sunday morning or Bible Study on Wednesday night, do you ever wonder who makes sure the doors are unlocked, the lights are on and the temperature is comfortable? That role belongs to the Marshals of Mt. Olive. The Marshals ensure that the church is accessible and comfortable for services, events and meetings. They keep a watchful eye out for safety concerns and maintenance needs throughout the church campus. The members of the Marshal Ministry understand the importance of keeping God's house and the people within safe and secure.
Media & Photography Ministry
The function of the MOMBC Media Ministry is to complement, enhance, and serve the ministries of the church in UNITY with the pastor’s vision through video, audio, printed media and technology so that the Lord is glorified. We serve to provide means of equipping the church membership for works of service, to encourage, motivate and enlighten each other and serve as an instrument of worship and ministry. Roles in our ministry include photography, audio/video, website design & administration, graphic design, printed media and PowerPoint presentation creation and technological infrastructure.
The purpose of the music ministry is to magnify and glorify Jesus Christ and establish an atmosphere conducive to worship, enabling God's presence to move freely among the congregation. Our ministry serves as an enhancement to the worship service, preparing the people for the delivery of the Spoken Word. The music ministry at MOMBC consists of four singing units (Inspirational Choir, Men’s Chorus, Youth Choir and Praise Team) and a team of talented musicians. Together we aspire to engage the congregation, inspiring each person to experience Christ on a personal level.
The mission of the Usher Ministry is to provide comfort and promote the best worship experience possible to visitors and members. Being an usher is a sacred responsibility. We are expected to greet all worshippers with a pleasant smile. We seat guests entering the sanctuary, distribute church bulletins, pamphlets, etc., assist with the collection of offering, direct visitors to the correct locations within the church and maintain order at all times. Ushers assist the pastor, visitors, friends and members in any way necessary, providing courteous, disciplined, prompt, and alert service.
The Nurses of MOMBC are servants of the Most High God. They take care of the health and other needs of the church. Our nurses serve the pulpit and serve others during services and special events, including first aid in the event of injury or illness. All nurses and junior nurses are trained and certified in first aid and CPR.
Prison Outreach Ministry
I was in prison and you came to Me. Matthew 25:36
The Prison Ministry at MOMBC serves as intervention for at risk teens, ministers to those incarcerated, and empowers returning citizens with necessary skills and resources for successful reentry into society. Our youth services provide programs and opportunities to redirect our youth spiritually and provide a positive environment for learning and nurturing good moral character. Our prison outreach services provide support services to incarcerated individuals and their families.
“Go out into the highways…and compel them to come in, that my house
may be filled…” Luke 14:23
The transportation ministry at Mt. Olive provides reliable and safe transportation to and from worship services and other church related functions as necessary. We also provide accommodations for members to accompany the Pastor and the church to outside fellowships and various engagements. Van drivers pick up passengers in Urbana, Champaign and Rantoul. Our goal is to continue extending both our services and ourselves to the congregation and the community.
