Discipling Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunity: Blazing Hope sponsors “Camp Run Free" for at-risk children this summer: June 25-29 and July 9-13. Blazing Hope Ranch, one of our partnership organizations, seeks to restore wholeness to female survivors of human trafficking and weaken the sex trade through the power of Christ.  The camp focuses on teaching 8 to 13 year old children their individual worth in Christ.  This is an opportunity to disciple and serve while providing food for the children at camp. If you are interested, please contact the office.

If you are interested in learning more about Discipling Opportunities, go to www.clearcreekcoc.org/serve or contact the church office.  

Available opportunities are:

Adult Small Group Leaders: Guide a community to connect with God and with each other, facilitate gatherings for your group and work to create a safe environment where relationships can be fostered and discipleship can take place.

Small Group Leader for 7th and 8th grade boys: Youth SGLs are the relational and discipling driving force of the ministry; walk with students week after week coaching them through Biblical application and mentoring them through life’s challenges.

Pre-k Teachers for three year olds and for four year olds: Have fun sharing Jesus with eager learners via ready-made lessons. Be part of a team that’s helping to shape disciples starting at an early age.

Elementary Small Group Leader for 3rd-5th Grades: Invest in the lives of children as you and other leaders share everyday life applications of the Bible’s teaching through serving and discussions.
