About Deer Creek Church

Deer Creek is a growing multi-generational church (300+) in beautiful Littleton Colorado, a southwest suburb of Denver. We are a church committed to making disciples who wholeheartedly follow Jesus and faithfully make Jesus followers. We value the gospel, empowered laity, community, and the intentional multiplication of disciples/communities/churches. We are looking for someone to join our staff family who is passionate about serving kids, seeing disciples made and Jesus' kingdom advance.


About Our Children's Ministry

The Children’s Ministry @ Deer Creek Church is centered on the vision of GO, drawing from Jesus commandment in the Great Commission to “Go and make disciples…” With this vision, our children are reminded that wherever they go and whatever they do, they are on mission with Jesus to be disciples making disciples. Practically, this vision is pursued through our Sunday morning children’s program that includes classroom interaction time, group teaching, prayer, service, and worship. This time is designed specially to engage with children of a variety of backgrounds and learning styles across the wide age range of childhood (Nursery through 5th Grade). We want these little ones to grow in faith and knowledge, to know they are loved by our great God and by their church family, and to be raised up as disciples who are on mission with Jesus.
