This ministry track involves working with children in a variety of settings including:
Vacation Bible Schools, Backyard Bible Clubs, day camps, and other site-specific work with children. Groups may work at churches, community centers, apartment complexes, children’s homes, etc. The purpose of this track is to provide students with the opportunity to teach and lead children through Bible stories, games, crafts and music.
Games and Recreation Ministry
This ministry track is designed to help students use their athletic ability and willing hearts to share the gospel through sportsmanship and Christ-like attitudes. These tracks are located in children’s centers or homes, apartment complexes, community centers and boys and girls clubs. Games and Recreation tracks will not always have the opportunity to lead Bible stories or share the Gospel directly, but will focus more on relational evangelism through intentional conversations. This track ministers to people of all ages, from pre-k to high school and even adults.
Painting, Construction, and Yard Work Ministry
Students in this track will spend their time doing yard work, repairing, cleaning, painting, and doing light construction work. These tracks work with various organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and local housing authorities to meet the physical needs of churches, schools, families and individuals. Students in this track will be encouraged to share the love of Christ with people they encounter through their work.
This ministry track provides students a variety of ministry opportunities for meeting the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs of people. Students in this track may minister in: mentally/physically handicapped centers, nursing homes, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, food banks, clothing closets, furniture distribution centers, refugee ministries, prison ministries, Baptist Centers, Salvation Army sites, and other community organizations with similar purposes.
