Thank you for your interest in serving with us in the Children’s Ministry! I am so excited to begin this conversation with you and see where the Lord leads us.

Our purpose as a Children’s Ministry is to partner with families to raise a generation that exists to love God, love others, and invite all people to do the same. To see this vision come to fruition, we have made a commitment to discipleship. We believe that discipleship happens in the context of meaningful relationships, and in order to build these relationships, we need leaders who will commit to walking with children through the highs and lows of life while inviting them to behold Jesus, “the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world!” (John 1:29)

We believe God will do incredible things IN and THROUGH the next generation. Because we believe this, we will continually raise the bar and challenge our kids to go deeper in their walk with Jesus. To raise the bar, we, as leaders, have to walk with them. Leading children is an incredible, joy-filled, yet challenging experience. So, are you ready to change the world? Are you ready to equip the next generation to exceed our generation in giving, worship, evangelism, faithfulness, and love? God is doing amazing work in the hearts of the children at Summit Community Church.

General Information

Children’s Ministry
Leader Commitment

What do we believe?
  1. The Scriptures, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, are the Word of God, which is true, authoritative, and without error.
  2. There is only one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. All humanity, Christ excluded, is sinful by both birth and action.
  4. The deserved penalty for sin is physical and spiritual death.
  5. Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin, and is both fully God and fully human.
  6. Jesus Christ died as the sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for sin.
  7. Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will one day physically return.
  8. There will be a future resurrection of the dead. Only those who turn from sin and to Jesus in faith and repentance will be raised to eternal life.
  9. Only through repentance from sin and faith in the Person and work of Jesus Christ can one be reconciled to God and have eternal life. Those who do not turn from sin and to Jesus will be raised to judgment and eternal conscious punishment in hell.

What do we expect?
 I commit…

  1. To pursue the Lord Jesus Christ through regular Bible reading, prayer, fellowship, and practice of spiritual disciplines.
  2. By God’s grace through the power of the Holy Spirit, to walk in holiness in all areas of life as an act of worship to Jesus Christ.
  3.  When I sin, I confess my sin to God and fellow believers, repenting and seeking to put my sin to death.
  4. To be present and on time when you are scheduled to serve and to all meetings and trainings unless there is a valid reason for your absence (work, family, etc.)
  5. To pray for our children at least weekly.
