Children’s Ministry in a Resort Area
Location: First Baptist Church of Tahoe City, California
Come to beautiful Lake Tahoe, California, and help children and their parents hear about Jesus. 85% of the people who live in
California do not know Jesus. Our children’s preschool and school-age ministries reach out to the local and tourist children and
families with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are looking for students who love children, who are teachable and love Jesus.
School-age teachers: Need 12 semester hours TOTAL in any combination:¬ Education classes, Physical Education, Recreation,
Music, Art, Dance, Theatre, Band, Psychology, Sociology, or Nursing. School-age teachers teach their own class.
There are 3 age groups: Kindergarten, 1st – 2nd, and 3rd – 6th. Four school-age teachers are needed each semester (fall or spring); eight school-age teachers are needed for the summer term.
Preschool age teachers: Need 12 semester hours TOTAL in any combination: Early Childhood Education, Human Growth and
Development, Child Life, or Child Development. There are two age groups: Busy Bee Class (2.5 – 3-year-olds) and Friendly
Frogs Class (4 – 5-year-olds). There will be two teachers in each class. Four preschool
teachers are needed each semester and summer.
We are licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services. You must love children. This is a children’s ministry
position. We want to have a long term relationship with the families and their children. We start with My Morning Out, then
transition them into Preschool, School Age, and then youth group. Every day in each age group we teach a Bible story and have
prayer time. We are open M-F from 7:30-5:30. Students will work 8:30-5:30. In preschool, you can have up to 12 students with a qualified teacher. In school-age you can have up to 14 children per teacher. Our goal is to “Train up a child in the way they should go.” We use 28 college students per year. We use 8 students each fall semester, and 8 students each spring semester. In the summer we need 12 students (4 preschool teachers and 8 school-age teachers). Students for the school-age in the summer are provided by TN, GA, MS, and LA Baptist Campus Ministries. This past month a Mom is bringing her three children every Sunday to church. Her 8-year-old is asking about Jesus. The Mom and the girl are learning more about Jesus.
A supervisor will send you a devotion each day via email.
We have weekly staff meetings where we grow spiritually.
We have conferences individually with the students twice a month.
Pastor Scott leads a devotion each Sunday before church.
We also have a men’s Bible student and a ladies Bible study each week.
