First Baptist Church of Tahoe City and Tahoe Resort Ministries seeks to creatively and compassionately reveal the presence of God to those who live, work, and play in the resort communities along the North Shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe. We do this by showing grace to and care for children and families of both locals and guests of our area. Supervisors for this project are Scott Capshaw, Debbie Wohler and Nell Jackson.
We are seeking 8 outgoing, energetic, hardworking, and organized semester missionaries for both the Spring semester (end of December to beginning of June) and Fall semester (mid August to mid December). You must love children and be a teachable, team player! We need leaders who possess good character. We have high standards because we believe God deserves our very best!
Most four year degrees and some two year degrees will qualify to work with our K-6 program. For our preschool positions, each student will need to have 12 semester hours of early childhood education classes. These classes can be in the areas of: child development, child, family, and community, and curriculum. Early childhood majors, family study majors, and human growth and development majors qualify for the preschool. There are other education classes that count, so call us if you think you are close to these needed classes.
Ski ministry will be another area of ministry. (Spring Semester only) Students would lead worship services on the ski slopes on Sunday afternoons. You do not need to already know how to ski to do this ministry. We will teach you to ski, how to lead a service, and we will provide the necessary clothing and equipment.
My Morning Out is a ministry to preschool children held on Tuesday mornings from 9:00-noon.
Parents’ Night Out is a once a month ministry for children ages birth through 12. This ministry is held the first Friday night of each month from 6:00-10:00 p.m. Students lead Bible stories, games, crafts, etc.
Ministries at the schools- On Wednesday mornings, students volunteer in a local school classroom.
I’m interested. What’s the next step?
