Our Team

Breakthrough Team
Our Breakthrough Church Team, or “BCCOG – Team” is comprised of a host of staff and volunteers that serve to make the vision of Breakthrough a reality. From our Prayer Room to our Nursery, from our Hospitality Room with coffee and desserts to our greeters, this BCCOG – Team is here for you!

Truly, we are a team made of many teams, the BCCOG – Team provides an opportunity for everyone to be equipped for hands-on ministry and to grow in their God-given gifts and talents.

It’s our prayer that you’ll help us reach our world with the life-giving hope of Jesus Christ by serving with us on the BCCOG – Team!

For more information on how to become part of the BCCOG – Team, please contact any of the ministry leaders or staff.
