Children in ministry


To the Children

Volunteer groups may be needed during specific times of the year to help minister to the children during evening chapel services from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday – Friday. Volunteer need is dependent on the number of children at the Mission at the time.

Volunteering will be coordinated through the Director of Women and Children’s Program and additional volunteer screening is required. You and the Director of Women and Children’s Program will coordinate an activity such as play a game, tell Bible stories, or provide a craft activity.

Become a Volunteer

It only takes a minute to set up a campaign. Decide what to do. Pick a name. Pick a photo. And just like that, you’ll be ready to start raising money.
