Ministry Leader Expectations:
Children are a blessing from God and we want to be able to introduce them to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith. As a leader in Children’s Ministry at BAC, you have the opportunity to impact young lives for eternity, your influence not only lies with the kids but also their families as they entrust their kids to you.
Your personal walk with the Lord is the most important thing you bring to Kid's Ministry as a Leader. You need to be in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, knowing He is Lord of your life. Spending personal time in prayer and Bible reading as well as attending BAC Sunday services on a regular basis is expected of everyone who leads.
As a Kidmin leader you are to be a good role model and to set a great example of what a Christian should be. You will build into young lives the knowledge and experience that you have as a Christian. The kids need to hear you talking about what God is teaching you. They want to know your relationship with God is alive and vibrant! Our kids need this type of leader! Kids are watching you. We need to remember that we represent Christ to the world around us. If leaders are not close to God and are not a living example for the kids, how can we expect the kids to be?
Kids today need strong, caring leaders. They need to see Christians who are excited about their faith and growing in it. The Children’s Ministry at BAC needs leaders who are committed to Christ and the body of believers. Our kids need someone to believe in them and to love them as God does. We are the hands and feet of Jesus to these kids as we instill God’s Word in the hearts and lives of children. His word is the absolute authority in all matters. Clear teaching of Scripture is foundational.
To be an effective leader the most important thing that you must have next to your relationship with Christ, is a love for kids. Kids don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. If the kids know you love them you will be able to impact their lives in incredible ways.
We want our Children’s Ministry Team to be the best possible for effective ministry and to God’s glory. These expectations have been put in place because we love you and love those we serve. They are not limited to your time spent with the kids in ministry, but your lifestyle as a whole.
Plan to Protect:
The Plan to Protect Program works towards providing a safe environment for effective ministry to children. Bramalea Alliance Church is taking appropriate steps to aid in the prevention of abuse by requiring leaders to be regular attenders at BAC (at least 6 months prior to serving), to attend a training session, information forms to be filled out along with references, criminal reference checks and an interview process. Everyone is required to go through this process so that we can provide a safe environment to bring our kids to Jesus.
We offer a Training Session once a year that covers the rules and regulations regarding Plan to Protect, and also how to provide a safe environment for our children. Anyone interested in leading with Kids Ministry requires a Vulnerable Sector Check from the Regional or Provincial Police Department in which they reside. If you require a Vulnerable Sector Check, please contact Miss Julie.
Below are the different Ministry roles for you to prayerfully consider where God is leading you to serve. If you would like to get involved in Kid's Ministry, please contact Miss Julie (Children's Pastor) and fill out appropriate P2P form below.
