Below are the requirements to be a volunteer small group leader in KAC YOUTHMIN175:
Because of who we are in Christ, the organization we represent, and the impressionable age we work with, each of us must strive for holiness in every area of our lives. Acts 20:28 - “Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.” Titus 2:7 - “Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.” 1 Thess 5:20-22 “Abstain from all appearance of evil.”
1. The 6 Month Rule - You must have been attending Kenmore Alliance for at least 6 months prior to applying to be a YouthMIN175 volunteer.
2. Age Gap Rule - High School Leaders: Must be at least 2 years out of High School (for example: Grad June 2019, cannot be a youth leader until at least Fall of 2021). Middle School Leaders: Must be at least 2 years out of Middle School (for example: a junior or senior in High School is allowed to be a “Jr.” Middle School youth leader).
3. Be a growing Christian – regularly spend time with God through praise and worship, Bible reading and prayer on your own time.
