THE HEART BEHIND OUR VOLUNTEERS: 

When it comes to ministry here at SSM, we have a simple formula that we have seen work over and over and over again. Here it is:

A CARING ADULT + A STUDENT = GOOD STUFF

That’s it. It’s not magic, and it’s certainly not algebraic. We know that when a caring adult is involved in the life of a student(s), good stuff happens. Will you consider being one of those caring adults? Our team would love to have you join us! We have three primary roles that allow for various levels of involvement: (1) Life Group Leaders, (2) Weekend Leaders, and (3) Special Event Leaders. If you are interested in leading, click  HERE  to print and fill out a volunteer leader form. Once you have completed the form, turn it in to Darren Delin or you can bring it to the SSM room on the weekend. Email Darren at darrend@saddleback.com if you have any more questions.


LIFE GROUP LEADER

A Life Group leader is a student ministry small group leader. Life Groups meet once a week throughout the school year, in homes on Wednesday night for about an hour and a half, and are comprised of Bible study, relational connection, games, prayer time, etc. A typical group is made up of 10 students (grade and gender specific) and 2 leaders who co-lead the group each week. Curriculum for the Bible studies is provided as well as small group leader training before groups launch and on-going training throughout the year. 

 

WEEKEND LEADER

Weekend leaders serve at one or more of SSM’s weekend services. Responsibilities include sitting with students, showing enthusiasm for the weekend program, and leading a table. Your primary role on the weekend is to ensure each and every student who attends the weekend service has at least one personal connection with other students and an adult leader. 


EVENT LEADER

SSM puts on events for junior high students all throughout the year, from dodgeball tournaments to beach days to summer camp and many, many more. Special events leaders serve at these events in many different capacities, such as set-up, tear-down, hanging out with students, shopping for needed resources, etc.
