Youth Volunteer

There may be a few volunteer positions in the EDGE Youth Ministry for Youth Volunteers who want to be a positive role model to other youth. Through actively participating in games, challenges, skits, prayer, and Scripture, you will lead and foster healthy Faith filled relationships. EDGE Nights will enhance your personal relationship with God, and in turn, you will lead others, by example, into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Much will be asked of you, and much will be gained by you. Training will be provided in September. Are you ready to share your God given gifts with the youth? Are you ready to develop gifts you never knew you had? Are you on board yet?
