Volunteer Opportunities at Extraordinary Church

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING IN OUR EKIDS

First, let us ease your mind about a few things:

You don’t have to be an expert. Each member of our eKids team has one thing in common: we are passionate about children and passionate about God. If you have a heart to love God and a desire to help children discover a relationship with Him, then you have the two ingredients necessary to become a leader in our ministry. You do not need a degree in education or to be a parent to be a great leader. We will equip and train you for your ministry.

You don’t need all the time in the world. We have many ways that you can lead children in a time frame that will work for you. In just an hour and a half each week, you will be able to form relationships with children and their parents that will communicate love and value, not only from you but also from God. You have choices in when and how you serve. You can serve during either of our Sunday worship experiences. You can serve preschoolers or elementary-age children.

You will not be alone. You will be supported in your ministry through the eKids staff and your co-leaders. We want to encourage, equip, energize and empower you for ministry. We frequently email you a newsletter with teaching tips, important dates and inspiring notes.

Getting involved in any ministry can seem overwhelming. We want to put your mind at ease and answer any questions you have. Please email eKids leader at kids@extraordinarychurch.ca. We look forward to getting to know you and helping you find where God has shaped you to be. It will be exciting to watch God at work in you and through you as you minister to His children.
