In Emerge, our mission is to make sure every child has an opportunity to hear the Gospel and feel the love of Christ. We use a one-on-one buddy system to ensure that each child is immersed in an inclusive environment with the comfort of a buddy to walk with them throughout each of our weekend services. Our goal is to meet each child where they are and provide them with the services they need to understand the Gospel at their level. We started this ministry to give each child a purposeful experience with Jesus and time for parents to truly rest in God’s presence, knowing their child is in a safe and loving environment.
About our buddy system
In Emerge our mission is to make sure every child has an opportunity to hear the Gospel and feel the love of Christ. As an Emerge buddy, our job is to make sure our kids feel included and safe and to give parents ease of mind. We stay with our students throughout service whether that is in their classroom or taking breaks in the sensory room. Once matched with a student, volunteers communicate directly with families to ensure that every need is met. Emerge volunteers must be 18 years old and willing to attend any training that may be required.
