Grace Kids: In Grace Kids, our mission is to help every child become an outward focused follower of Jesus! We desire to partner with parents as their children grow in faith and in the understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow Him. Our ministry consists of children ages birth-2 years old (Nursery), 3 year olds-Kindergarten (Grace Kids Jr) and 1st-5th grade (Elementary). The Grace Kids Resident will learn all aspects of Director level leadership including shepherding volunteers, learning large and small group models, scheduling, event planning and other children's ministry related skills and tasks. They will focus primarily on the Grace Kids Jr division, leading and working as the division level director with mentorship by the South Overland Park Grace Kids Director.
Outreach: At Grace, we are passionate about local and global outreach. We do global outreach because we believe God desires for all nations to know Jesus and it is our ambition to share the story of Jesus among unreached people groups. We also desire for our neighbors to know the truth about Jesus as well. We partner with local partners to see Jesus' name proclaimed in all of Kansas City. Our local outreach consists of Shelter KC, Freedom Fire, Church Under the Bridge, Mission Southside, and Rachel House. Our outreach resident will be building relationships and serving with not only our local partners, but also global partners. There will also be heavy research to find new partners worldwide, improve our Mission Trip process, and learn about how the church can be successful in community outreach.
