How to Become a Children & Family Ministry Team Member
How Do You Become a Children & Family Ministry Team Member?
Thanks so much for looking into how you can become a Children & Family Ministry Team Member. We have numerous opportunities during the week for Christ followers to join our team and serve the children and families of our local church and community.
As a Church, we exist to glorify God by making disciples who Love God, Love People, and Go into the World. Our Children & Family Ministry Team Members support this mission in two ways. First, Children & Family Ministry Team Members teach and disciple children directly in classroom environments. Second, when we're teaching children, this allows parents to engage in their own learning environment where they learn how to be a growing disciple who makes disciples.
Here's a list of opportunities broken down by day of the week and age of the children. If you're interested in joining the Children & Family Ministry Team, please contact either of the following people:
Renee Kelleher, Children & Family Director at 321-453-2144 ext 556 firstname.lastname@example.org
Brian Adams, Pastor of Children & Family at 321-453-2144 ext 551 email@example.com
For the safety of our children, all Children & Family Ministry Team Members are required to fill out an application, which includes a background check.
We pay workers to watch over infants up to 2 years of age. These workers are trained in basic first aid and infant CPR. There are two workers per room.
Paid Workers are used on Sunday mornings 9:00 am - 12:30 pm. They work a one month on and one month off schedule.
Paid workers are also used on an as-needed basis on Wednesday nights, Sunday nights, First Date Night, or whenever there is a request for childcare for an event on campus.
These Team Members volunteer weekly from 9:00 am until 10:45 am to teach the children Great Big Truths about our Great Big God! The children are grouped into classes by age or grade in school.
