Are you looking for a ministry that combines your commitment to the Lord, your passion for the outdoors, & connecting with people? Bayside Adventure Sports may just be the ministry for you! We have many roles for volunteers that can be found on our website HERE.

This is a 4-week Training Course for those wanting to volunteer. The classes will be March 2, 9, 16, and 23rd at Bayside Folsom.

Description: Bayside Adventure Sports is an almost all-volunteer, stand-alone 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Christian Ministry. Launched in 1998 by Greg Weisman at Bayside Church, it is a unique church-based ministry that uses Adventure Sports to Attract and Attach people to Jesus and His Church. With over 350 events a year in almost 20 sports from beginner to Advanced from 90 minute classes to multi-week Epic Adventures, it is for men, women, marrieds, singles, families, kids, Christians and Non-Christians. Over 100 volunteers serve in self-defined roles based on their love for Jesus, their passion for the outdoors, and their realistic time available. This Staff Training Course is designed to equip volunteers to join the team and begin serving others effectively, and have a blast while doing it!
