Position Descriptions for Volunteers

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” – Col. 3:23-24

Whether you are a teacher or assistant, each volunteer functions as a vital part of our Family Ministry as we seek to evangelize and disciple our preschoolers, children, and youth. To ensure that you are well informed and well equipped for the position you are serving, we ask that you refer to the following volunteer descriptions. It is important that we perform even the seemingly minute tasks in a excellent manner for the glory of God.
