Serve RIO Revolution
The Deacon Ministry at RIO Revolution is a very important and key ministry in the church’s goal of caring for the members and their families. With a church membership the size of RIO Revolution, the Pastor cannot be everywhere when members or their families have a spiritual need. Deacons serve the pastor by representing him in many ways: During times of need, in visitations of the sick, in prayer, serving in the altar, and just overall care for the members. Jesus said, “The greatest among you will be your servant” (Matthew 23:11). More than any term used to characterize the nature of Christian leadership, Jesus applied the concept of servanthood. RIO Revolution Church believes all Christian leaders at our church are “ministers” and called to love and serve God wholeheartedly, serve their church, our communities, and all mankind!

The Greeting Ministry is dedicated to making each member, regular and first time attender, feel welcome and experience the Love of Christ. If you love people and want your church to reflect the love of Christ, then we need you to be a part of the Greeter Ministry.

The parking team is designed to keep the traffic flow consistent and safe for all of our people attending. This team takes honor in being the first faces of our church that visitors see when they arrive. The parking team also offers transportation to the doors on our pedestrian golf carts.

Hebrews Cafe is one way many people in our church kick-start their worship. Serving at the cafe is doing ministry through coffee in big ways and small ways, such as knowing you and your “regular” drink order. We would love to have you join us.

Acts of Revolution
Acts of Revolution is a group of Christians that have come together to share the gospel through music, drama, arts and media. In serving God, we discover and develop the talents He has given us. It is not only as a means to entertain, but as a means to challenge others to seek a closer, more intimate walk with the Lord.
We have opportunities for performers, set designers, script writers, technical support, prop coordinators and stage hands. If you desire to use your creative skills for His kingdom, have a servant’s heart and enjoy laughing for hours, you may want to prayerfully consider joining Acts of Revolution.

Our purpose is to reach people who are lost, and encourage those who are found by keeping them informed of church involvement.
Though development of creative and fun ideas, we play a vital role in information marketing distribution for all marketing material, promotions, media, and events.

The RIO Revolution Production Team is an exciting part of ministry that allows us to enhance the worship experience and expand the Kingdom of God by using technology. Just a few of the areas that we use our talents are: worship lights, audio, live streaming monitoring, lyrics, videography, and slide design. We do extensive training in all areas, so no experience is required. We believe in serving with excellence in everything that we do.

The RIO Revolution Prayer Team prays any time we have a prayer request. Someone in the group is always available. We meet the second Thursday night of every month at 7:00 p.m. at the church, and on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. in the Discover Revolution room during the church service.
Our desire is to teach how important prayer is to the church, to families, and each Christian.

Can you believe we get an opportunity to worship the God who spoke the universe into existence? That same God knew you before you were formed in your mothers womb! (Jeremiah 1:5) Our God is so worthy of our love and our worship. As you step into Revolution you will see a high energy atmosphere full of passion for the God who gave it all! As children of God we have confidence to know that we are free! That is why worship at RIO Revolution is so full of excitement and energy. We would love to have you serve during worship with us!

Serving the Servants
This is a ministry of volunteers who help provide breakfast Sunday mornings at 8AM to all those that work early on Sunday mornings to serve you. Each week you will be given something to prepare at your home, and then bring to the church Sunday morning. We will pull together an awesome breakfast to say "Thank You" to those who are so diligently serving us each week, and give them a GREAT start to their day! Join us to serve the servants.
