In the summer of 2010, I had just graduated high school, and was getting ready to go into college. I was a summer kids ministry intern,and I was asked my church’s kidmin leader to come to CentriKid as a Team Assistant. I knew that I loved kids ministry, and wanted to serve God during the summer, so I said yes! The experience as a CentriKid Team Assistant opened my eyes to the ministry of camp, and I knew that I wanted to be involved more with kids ministry and be a camp staffer one day. You have the opportunity to ask high schoolers and college students in your ministry to partner along with you and come to camp as a team assistant!
Team Assistants are a valued part of the CentriKid programming: the kids benefit from positive role models, group leaders have more possibilities for adult sponsors, and the CentriKid Staff is always thankful for the extra help.The Team Assistant program began to help church leaders bring more adults to camp. Over the years we have grown our program to more than we even imagined it would ever become. Many of our current staffers (and even office team) were once Team Assistants!
Check out this video about Team Assistants for a broad overview about the program.
You can find out more about the team assistant program in your Group Leader information.
Remember the Team Assistant Program is an option for your most trusted high school juniors and seniors or college aged students. Middle school and high school students who are not at least a rising junior are not allowed to serve in this position. If you are interested in bringing team assistants make sure you add them to your participant lists as a Team Assistant. We love partnering with you in ministry and cannot wait to have Team Assistants join us this summer.
By bringing a team assistant to CentriKid, you are helping bring up a new generation of kids ministry leaders as you build relationships with them and they minister to your kids at camp! Bring a team assistant to CentriKid, and you’ll see how God can use this incredible program!
