We are looking for men that will greet all of our guests: Rain, Sunshine, Sleet, or Snow. (Yes, we get it all in Memphis). Our Front Liners meet guests in the parking lot.

WORSHIP ARTS and MULTIMEDIA MINISTRIES
Worship Arts and Multi-Media believes that in all that we do, we as Christians must do it whole heartedly unto the Lord. Worship Arts centers on serving God. Simply, it all comes back to our worship of God being a way of life and not just a thing that we do.
Praise and Worship Dancers
Shall we dance? While the spoken Word, songs of praise and other recitations symbolically convey and represent enactment of worshipers relationship with God through the medium of language, dance or movement also conveys the God-Humankind relationship through interpretative movements. Worship is characterized by many dramatic elements (The Lord’s Supper, Baptism, Easter Dramas, etc.) including dance. Throughout past ages dancing has been associated with worship.
The Dr. Lee R. Brown Praise & Worship Dancers (for children, youth, and young adults) and the Women of Dance (18 years and older) share in the Worship experience often at Springdale Baptist Church and other gatherings. Answer your call from God and join us in the dance ministry.
Do you have the JOY for the Lord? “Always remember J is to think of Jesus first, O is for others second, and Y for yourself, last.” This is the motto of the Joy for Christ Puppet Ministry and our scripture is: “These things have I spoken unto you that my joy might remain in you and that your joy might be full.” (John 15:11)
The Joy for Christ Puppet Ministry is designed to enhance participation, create fellowship, and teach teamwork among puppeteers. This is done through the art of hand puppet drama productions that inform, entertain, and clarify the message of Jesus Christ to the congregation of saved and unsaved. This may be done through songs, skits, or plays. If you are ready to build your spiritual foundation while sharing the Gospel with others, the Puppet Ministry is for you.
Lights … Camera … Action … The Drama Ministry’s purpose is to use drama to present the gospel in order to challenge the congregation to greater reflection and commitment to Christ and His church, and to help win the lost to Christ. The Drama Ministry utilizes the gifts God has given us, so Christ can be glorified through us. We all have a little drama in us and we can use your acting skills in our next production.
An Alternative Ministry of Outreach. The Step Ministry is an effective way for the children and youth to minister to their peers by explaining Gospel truths through their rhythmic movements and chants.

FAMILY LIFE MINISTRIES
Men in Christ Ministry
What comes to your mind when you think of being a man?
Strength… Boldness… Passion… Purpose… Leadership… Respect. Each of these qualities personify the role that God has called men to take in this world. This is what we define Men in Christ. At “The Spring”, a revolution has begun, and we are invested in developing men that walk closely with God and follow His guidance at every turn. As we strive towards building a community of faithful men who are equipped to lead themselves and their families, we offer solid Biblical teaching that prepares your heart and mind to follow God’s path for your life. On our journey, we will unpack what it means to be godly servant-leaders and challenge each other to pursue that life. During our Men in Christ ministry gatherings, we emphasize and equip the man you are becoming, despite the man you may have been. Join us every 2nd Saturday of the month at 8:00A as we study God’s Word over breakfast and live out what it means to be a Christian man.
