We’re looking for some who has a heart for children and youth. Our church has two congregations that are interlinked, a Chinese-speaking congregation and an English-speaking one. Because of this our children and youth come from both congregations. We have invested in more skilled volunteers to help with the youth and teaching, but we are still wanting a leader who can teach effectively and who can creatively further develop children’s ministry and who can invest in our older youth. We currently use several models of children and youth ministry suggested by our denomination: Canadian Baptist of Ontario and Quebec.
Overview of Church and Community
This church of around 100 attendants which includes about 45 English speaking congregants. Our English congregation has been growing and changing for the last two years and we are looking for someone to come alongside our ministry and help with the growing children’s ministry and youth.
