We are so excited that you would consider joining our team. We have an amazing group of leaders who have joined Watkinsville in seeking to lead students to become wholehearted followers of Christ. Here is our process for becoming a leader with us.
1. Take a few moments to fill out our leader application (this allows us to get to know you, and allows us to run a background check- all of our volunteers are screened in this manner)
2. It is the policy of Watkinsville First Baptist that all those who work with minors must have a background check. Click here to print out the form or pick up a copy in the church office copier room, on the wall is a dropbox with instructions to make a copy of your driver's license as well, then you can insert both pages in the the dropbox labeled Background Check.
3.Once you have filled out the application, you will be asked to provide three references. This is as simple as sending this link to three people: Reference Form
4. To understand more of our vision for middle and high school ministry and more info on our leadership roles, read this document.
5. After you have completed your application, we will set up a meeting with you so that we can get to know you better. This will be a very informal meeting that will give you a chance to get to know us and what we're about and vice versa. If we haven’t set this up yet, send us an email.
6. Then come preview what we are doing. We will talk to you more about that when we meet, but basically you will observe what's going on in our ministry and have a chance to see if this is where God is calling you to serve.
7. After you've had a chance to see what's going on with our ministry, we'll set up a second meeting to see what serving with our team looks like. Also we want to see how God has gifted you as well! We will talk about this more when we set up this meeting.
8. Finally, we will provide you with training on how our ministry works and the role you play.
If you have more questions- send us an email.
Maybe you aren't sure that you want to commit to serving just yet and want to check things out. We'd love to have you come and observe. If you just want to check things out fill out this VERY short form and we'll be in touch with you about how to do that!
