Serving @ GroveKids

2022 – 2023 LEADER APPLICATIONS

At GroveKids we desire for our leaders to be “known, trained, empowered, and celebrated.” We believe that when church and home partner together, children feel seen and known by Jesus, and are able to see and know Jesus in the world around them.

If you are interested in serving at GroveKids this year, we invite you to look through the information below. In the past few years, our leadership application and training processes have changed significantly, so we ask both new and returning leaders to read through the documents found on this page. In our application and training process, it is ultimately our desire to create an environment where kids, parents and leaders are safe and cared for.

This is our process:

  • Read the documents required of you
    • This will vary depending on if you are a New or Returning Leader, if you unsure which applies you to you, please contact Ashley.
  • Fill out the application(s)
    • Returning Leaders are asked to fill out the “GroveKids Volunteer Application.”
    • New Leaders are asked to fill out the Attridge wide “Ministry Application,” and the “GroveKids Volunteer Application.”
  • Watch the Virtual Training
    • This link can be found below
  • Wait for follow-up
    • Once you have submitted your application, we will follow-up with you!

If you have any questions about serving, please contact our Pastor of Children’s Ministries, Jodi Enns (jodi@forestgrovecc.com). Questions regarding the application process can be directed to our Children’s Ministries Assistant, Ashley Power (ashley@forestgrovecc.com).
