Join Our Student Ministry Leader Team

When it comes to student ministry, one of the most important elements are the adult volunteers who serve in the ministry. From Sunday school and small groups on Wednesday evenings to special events and retreat chaperones, the adults who volunteer to pour their lives into students make a huge difference. We’re looking for authentic adults who are willing to listen, have fun, ask questions, and show up consistently.
