We have some of the coolest kids around… really, we aren’t biased! And we are always on the lookout for people who are interested in serving our kids. If you love working with kids and are looking for a way to deepen your faith, serve God, or give back to the Upper Room Community, UR Kids leadership is an amazing opportunity.

 

we need you to do two important things:

  1. Complete online application process that includes an application (with submission of references) 

  2. Complete a background check.

 

Thanks in advance for taking the time to complete this process. A member of the UR Kids staff will contact you after you submit your application. It should take 15 to 20 minutes from this point on. If you have questions please feel free to contact Hannah Sinnwell – a member of the UR Kids staff.

 

room leaders

Room Leaders are those who would like to worship in a different way once a month by leading in UR Kids. Jump in and see the joy of spending time with the kids of our community! They will learn from you as you model what it is like to be a follower of Christ, but you will also learn from them as they share their wide eyed, child-like faith with you! Join a consistent team for one Sunday a month (or more if your schedule allows) by selecting 1st-4th Sunday Teams.

sub list

We are always looking for incredible leaders to serve in a substitute capacity. Or maybe the Sunday Team you are interested in volunteering on is currently full, but you would like to serve where you can, when you can in the meantime. If a Room Leader has to miss their rotation, they can reach out to you to see if you are able to fill in. Or if someone needs to step away from their position as a Room Leader all together, we'd love to plug in one of our leaders from the sub list who has already spent some time with our kids. Jump in and see the joy of spending time with the kids of our community! 

current leaders

If you are currently a UR Kids leader and are looking to access the plan for an upcoming Sunday, see a list of the other leaders on your team, find someone on the sub list to fill in for you, or look for someone from another week to flip with you for a month you can't lead, please follow the link below to the UR Kids Groups directory.
