Ministry Department serves to equip and help each member discover his/her personality, passion, and personal giftedness and place of Ministry within our church and community. It seeks to encourage members to dedicate their lives to Jesus Christ, and to enable members to develop the service ministry and the care ministry of the church. One of the primary responsibility of the Ministry Department is overseeing all the small group ministries of our church. Service Ministry is also part of our responsibility. Throughout the year, each small group will find opportunities for community service. Passing our flyers to the neighborhood, Angel Tree Christmas gifts for children, and sorting food at the San Francisco Food Bank are but a few of community services that we take part in. Caring Ministry serves the needs of members who requires special physical, emotional and spiritual care. Our special care team will provide home delivery meal service to those that are seriously ill or unable to prepare meals. Visitation to the elderlies or the sicks is usually coordinated with our pastoral team. Ministry Department joyfully serves the body of Christ at Golden Gate.

Our responsibilities include training and scheduling of worship teams and audio-visual personnel, maintenance of musical instruments, computers and sound systems, as well as general organization and maintenance of our worship inventory and facilities (Sanctuary and Gospel Hall).
