SO YOU WANT TO JOIN KIDS MINISTRY!!
This information package contains the expectations for a Children’s Ministry Volunteer as well
as descriptions of all positions available within this Foundational Ministry.
Our PURPOSE is to spark a deep desire within each child to KNOW Jesus Christ as their Lord and
Savior, to GROW in their relationship with Him and to SHOW His love to the world around them
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 part of the 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. To be an effective Children’s Ministry Volunteer,
the most important thing that you need to have, next to having an intimate relationship with
Jesus Christ, is a love for kids. Kids do not care how much you know until they know how much
you care. As long as the kids know you love them, you will be able to impact their lives in
Your personal walk with the Lord is very important. You need to be in a growing relationship
with Jesus Christ, knowing He is Lord of your life. He is guiding it, He is controlling it and He is
directing it. You will be expected to spend personal time in prayer and Bible reading as well as
attend BAC Sunday services on a regular basis.
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 mature 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, whether you know it or not. 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.
Below are the current roles and descriptions so you will have clear knowledge of what will be expected of
you. 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. I am asking you to read over the agreement, pray about where you see God using you,
sign and return to me.
