AWAKEN KIDZ VIbE TEAM HANDBOOK

THE VALUES. THE VISION. THE MISSION.

 

THE CORE VALUES OF KIDZ CHURCH ARE…Safe, Fun, and God.

Safety and security are our first and foremost priorities. We maintain high-security standards via strict check in and out procedures, child safety ratios, with training and background checks for all team members. We want to ensure children are safe and well looked after while under our care. Awaken Kidz strives to earn and maintain the trust of our parents so that the entire family can confidently participate in the exciting life of Awaken Church, and can build their lives in God’s House!

We strive to infuse fun into everything we do. We know that if a child has fun at every juncture of church in their formative years, they will forever associate joy with the House of the Lord! We aim to create a children’s ministry that is “larger than life” in the sight of our kids so that the House of God will forever reign dear in their hearts.

Awaken Kidz connects children personally to Jesus Christ through powerful weekend services with Godly discipleship, energetic praise and worship, and engaging programs. We value every moment we are given to speak into the lives of our kids and we place no limits on what God will do in them and through them. Awaken Kidz is the gatekeeper of the emerging generation and it’s a privilege to connect children to the heart of God, and train them in the way they should go so that when they are older they will not depart from it!
 

 

EXPECTATIONS AND QUALIFICATIONS

 

The Bible is clear about the necessity for us to grow in our understanding of God and our relationship with Him.  This is especially important for those of us in a leadership ministry.  We must each take responsibility for our own pursuit of God and Christian living.

 

We need to be continually 'topping up', refreshing our relationship and growing in God.  You can't give out what you haven't put in.

 

We must not be simply a collection of talented individuals, but a team with a single purpose.  Our skills need to be used to enhance the team as a whole, not to show off our own abilities.  We must be willing to work together - to blend, to flow.  A team attitude is essential.

 

The privilege to lead people into worship is not extended to 'anyone who wants to have a go.' Our aim is to create an atmosphere where people are drawn to express themselves towards God in worship. Musicians and singers need to be proficient enough to follow charts and simple written music, while technical people need to have a level of competency that will enhance what is happening on stage. Everyone must be prepared to develop and extend his or her gifts. We understand that there is going to be a difference between an 8 year old vocalist and a 20 year old vocalist. 

 

Excellence honors God and inspires people.  We want to do both as we lead people in worship.  To achieve musical and technical excellence we need to work at our instrumental, vocal or technical ability to become the very best we can be.  This includes individual practice as well as playing with the team, and individual lessons.  The team will only be as proficient as the individuals it is composed of.

 

It is important that we know our role and understand its importance in the life of the church.  If we do, we will know that we need God's help.  It is He who moves people's hearts and draws them to Himself.  We must be intentionally open to His Spirit to lead and move through us.  We need to come ready not only to sing, play and serve, but also worship the King and minister to His people.  We need to be people who lead exemplary lives, understanding that we lead people by our example both on and off the stage.  

 

It is important that your immediate family is aware of the time commitments necessary, and that they are willing to accept this and support you in it. We ask all our team members to be available for a minimum of two Sundays a month.
