CM Coordinator/Leader Job Description


Our Philosophy
While Sabbath School provides for religious education once a week, Children’s Ministries looks at the whole child and seeks to provide multiple ministries that will lead children to Jesus and disciple them in their daily walk with Him.

Our Mission
The mission of the Children’s Ministries Department is to nurture children into a loving, serving relationship with Jesus.

My Challenge
It’s quite an awesome task God has entrusted me with, leading leaders to lead children to the greatest Leader of all. I am comforted though that God has promised wisdom in abundance to all who ask (James 1:5).  I challenge you all to seek Him daily as together we seek His transforming power in our lives and in the lives of our children.  I wish you Jesus.
