Our children are significant members of our church family, and that we have a huge responsibility to walk beside them during these formative years.
Our vision is that every child that we come into contact with experiences the love of Jesus in tangible ways. This love is most powerfully demonstrated through the care of our adult and high school leaders. Throughout the year, we have a significant opportunity to serve and mentor children as they are taking steps closer to Jesus and making faith commitments of their own.
Our leaders come with a variety of gifts and experiences, but the most crucial asset that they bring is a love for Jesus and a heart to serve people. Is God leading you to invest your life into the lives of our children? Contact Jessica Springer (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn how you can get involved..
