Job Description

World Changers:

We call our children “World Changers” because we believe that they can and will have an impact on our world, even at a young age. We encourage our kids to walk in the disciplines of the faith, the fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. As they are filled with His truth and walk in His power, we believe that they will take the Gospel wherever God leads them – next door and to the nations.


Our Vision:

Our vision is to empower, equip, and activate children to advance the Kingdom of God. It's our heart that they encounter God, follow Him, and lead others to know and follow Him. We believe that this is best achieved within a strong community of teachers, working together to reflect the fullness of the Body of Christ.


Our Teaching:

We are blessed with gifted, passionate teachers that impart God’s truth in active, effective ways, so that the kids can hear it, see it, say it, and do it. It is an environment where the Holy Spirit is welcome and the children are positioned to encounter God's presence. Our curriculum is broad and rich with the Word, covering the same truths that the adults are learning downstairs, believing that our children can look like Jesus at a young age. We use skits, object lessons and Bible story dramas to make the Word come alive. We challenge the kids to be more than hearers, but doers of the Word, as they pray for each other, share testimonies and apply the truth to their own lives.
