About Fuel Team

The Fuel Team is Common Ground’s gap year of your life program for young adults between the ages of 18-25.


The year is for people who love God and want to serve Him through the local church.

Fuel Team will be one of the most memorable years of your life. Not only will you deepen your relationship with God and learn skills which will help you serve the church and others, but you will make great friends, discover new things about yourself, and hopefully have a whole lot of fun in the process.

Service is at the heart of Fuel Team. We believe Jesus came to serve, so we take great joy in following his lead. We want to strengthen the church in as many ways as we can. This means helping out with some of the daily grind as well as working church events and getting involved in social justice issues connected to our community.

We don’t only want to grow in service, but we want to grow in our understanding of our creator. A big part of Fuel Team is learning about God so that our lives can be fuelled by the truth in his word. A better theology means we’re better equipped for life and ministry.

We have a big passion for schools, and a large focus of the year will be sharing the gospel in the surrounding schools, and partnering with children and high school ministries within the church. If you love camps and trips, then you won’t be disappointed!

Your personal growth is also important to us. We don’t want you to leave the same person you were at the beginning of the year. We’ll help you lead yourself and others well, and we’ll train you in public speaking, multimedia, first aid and financial planning. We’ll even throw in a bit of career guidance!

Join Fuel Team and make next year count.
