  • bridge buiders

    Are people high school and college aged and up who are willing to “build bridges” to young people by serving in ways most comfortable to them.  Playing basketball or soccer, helping with art, reading a book, playing drum or a guitar, leading a devotion and mostly just being present.  The primary gathering right now is on Friday evening from 4:45 – 7:00 PM.  Commitment time of 2-5 hours per week.  These are volunteer positions.

  • youth mentors

    Are people college aged and older who take “bridge building” to the next level.  Working as a team, they will be present for Homework Help and Social Activities and will be responsible for the discipleship and faith activities with young people.  Mentors will be equipped to help young people move from social activities and homework help to a deeper and more significant connection to Christ and his Church.  Think “youth group” sponsors with the significant responsibility of helping young people grow as disciples.  We are estimating a commitment of 5-10 hours/week and compensation is included.  Applicants for these positions should receive joy in serving with young people.  We are seeking mature disciples of Jesus who have flexibility in their schedules.

  • transportation

    Perhaps one of the biggest challenges for ministry with young people (particularly in the city) is transportation.  Many families have only one car, if any.  New Americans typically work jobs at all hours of the day and night.  We are praying for a transportation solution: many volunteers or a safe van or a professional driver.  Are you able to help or do you have an idea?  These positions may be compensated.

  • support team

    Working with kids means preparing food, gathering supplies, registration, communicating with families etc.  If you are a “behind the scenes” kind of servant.  We need you.  Contact us for more information.  

  • story telling  (Communications, P.R., Photo and video)

    We have a story to tell and it is important to tell it well.  If this is your “sweet spot” we would love your help in telling the story of what God is doing at Saint Trinity.
