Our Ministries

You can become part of the ongoing mission of our church by joining one of our ministry teams!

This is where all of the prayers, planning, and hard work takes place. Each of our ministry teams is responsible for setting the vision for their particular area. We are blessed with faithful members who continue to support the ongoing ministries of Port Orange Presbyterian Church.

With faith, we trust in our elders, deacons, ministry teams and staff

to discern and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit;

our members are committed to serving our church and our community.
