Igniting a passion for Jesus in New England

Catch the Vision

Get Involved in 5 Easy Steps

Step 1: Attend for 6+ Months

Serving is an important step in being part of the body of Christ. Before you step into serving, we want to make sure that you are getting spiritually fed, getting connected, and – most importantly – desiring to serve here as a part of the commitment to making this church family yours. Exceptions can be made by a pastor and required reference.

*Requirement for lead teacher only: Become a Member

Becoming a member means that you protect the unity of the church and support our vision. This, in turn, protects our children and tells us that you agree with the theological framework of our church family.

Step 2: Talk With Us

We want everyone who has a desire to serve with kids to find a place that’s just right for them, suited to their gifts, abilities, and heart. If you are unsure of your best fit, we’d love to talk through different opportunities (lead teacher*, assistant, etcetera) with you and answer any questions you may have.

Step 3: Get Name Cleared

In order to protect the ministry of the church and the individuals who serve within it, our staff clears every name brought forward as a possible volunteer.

Step 4: Get A Background Check

Every person who volunteers with our children and youth (what we call the “emerging generation”) is required to complete and pass a background check. Safety is our #1 priority when it comes to our kids, and this helps to ensure that those who are working with them take seriously the responsibility of caring for and shepherding them. Background check forms can be found online or requested from a Children’s Ministry staff member

Please take a minute to fill out and submit your application/background check form.

Step 5: Get Approved and Get Started

The final step before jumping into the fun of serving with WHKids is completing an online training and abuse awareness & prevention evaluation. Whether it’s once a month or every week, we are excited to have you join the team!
