Leader Job Descriptions
The class/department organization for children ages 6-11 years is based on school grades. One worker is needed for every six children
enrolled in a class/department. A minimum of two leaders is needed for every children’s class/department no matter how many children.
Working with children in Sunday School involves more than just teaching girls and boys on Sunday morning. Reaching, teaching,
witnessing, caring for, fellowshipping with, and helping children to worship are all part of helping them know about God and how He
wants them to live.
