BECOME A VOLUNTEER!

 Are you are passionate about teaching kids truth and giving them opportunities to encounter God? Do you enjoy mentoring young ones in the ways of God?  If that's you, we want to invite you to be a part of what God is doing in our kids ministry!  

Now, there are two things we would like you to know:

1. We value a safe environment for your children - physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Our ministry personnel are approved through an application and criminal background check process as well as a personal interview with the Children's Pastor. We endeavor to adhere to both the PAOC Fundamental Truths as well as Gateway Family Church's mission, vision, and values.

2. We value committed and passionate leaders who are serving in their area of gifting.

With this goal in mind, we require a six month period of regular attendance to Gateway Family Church's Sunday services before an individual can be placed on the children's ministry team.
