Volunteer Opportunities


Volunteering at Tenth is a wonderful way to serve God and meet others. Opportunities to serve can be found on most ministry pages of this website.

Specific to our youth, Tenth's Children and Youth Ministries include: Community Playgroup, Tenth Church Preschool, Tenth Children's Music, Catechism Club, Praisemakers Plus, Children's Bible School, Maranatha, Communicants' Class, and Nursery.

If you're interested in volunteering for any of Tenth's children's ministries, please follow the two steps below. You will need to complete and submit the on-line form, "Volunteer Profile for Children & Student Ministry," and follow the links on the interactive section, "Background Check Instructions,"  which are detailed in the Nursery section of this site. Our Nursery staff also oversees all volunteers, so the approval process across all ministries is the same.

Step 1. Apply On-line: Volunteer Profile for Children & Student Ministry

Step 2. Follow the Background Check Instructions
