For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him, as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Thank you for considering pursuing the vision for the next generation with us!
The opportunities in Family Discipleship are varied enough to involve many different people with different gifts. If you have a heart for God and a desire to make Him known to the next generation, there is probably a place for you in these ministries. Our volunteer process is designed to help determine where our opportunities and your gifts and interests come together.
We prayerfully consider every person who applies to partner with parents and the Family Discipleship Department in ministry to our young people. Volunteers ministering to children, youth or young adults (birth–Sr. High) are required to fill out applications and complete a screening process. We take very seriously our responsibility to diligently work through every stage of the application process, and to do it in a timely manner.
There are a number of documents referenced in these applications which can be found on our website. These include:
Bethlehem’s Church Covenant
Bethlehem’s Affirmation of Faith
Family Discipleship Worker Screening Policy
Policies and Definitions regarding Inappropriate Behavior
FAQs regarding applying to work in Family Discipleship
If you do not have internet access and wish for these to be mailed to you, please contact the Family Discipleship Department.
We look forward to receiving your applications and talking with you more.
For the joy of the Next Generation,
The Family Discipleship Department
