To create a FUN, SAFE, LOVING environment where every child can LEARN ABOUT, EXPERIENCE, and SERVE Jesus Christ.
Our Volunteer Staff
In Columbia Kids we value children. For this reason, our volunteer staff is made up of wonderful, committed people who want to serve and love kids.
To ensure the safety of every child in Columbia Kids, all of our teachers and helpers must complete an application with references and be approved by the church pastoral staff. Everyone 18 or older must complete a background check every 2 years.
Additionally, all staff attend quarterly trainings. Our team is made up of incredible people who enjoy sharing the love of Jesus with every child they meet. We are ready to love and serve you and your family in every area of Columbia Kids.
