Mentoring is a godly, mutually-transforming, friendship that is one of the most important things you may ever do. It is simply encouraging a student to be all that God has designed, called, and gifted them to be, while helping them navigate the ups and downs of life. You will be equipped and supported throughout the entire relationship.

Commitment: Commit to at least 1 year of mentoring and 2 “equip & eat” trainings during the year. Communicate/Spend time with the student at least 4 times a month with at least two of those times being face-to-face.



Make an impact for Christ that brings hope to the next generation of our city. This role could include helping students with homework, learning a Bible verse, doing an activity, following the rules or playing a game. It is simply being a friend to a student and letting them see Jesus in you. You will be trained and paired with a head leader of a group. We especially need male leadership at RISE.

Commitment: RISE (preK to 6th grade) = Monday or Wednesday (or both) 3:20 – 5:30pm, LIT (Jr. HIgh and High School) = Thursday 7:00-8:45pm

Check-in/Out Leader

We need someone to do check-in/out at RISE on  Mondays or Wednesdays 3:15-5:30 pm. On Wednesdays, this person is needed to put together sack dinners with supplies already provided.

** All roles working directly with students require the following:  a personal relationship with Jesus, be a member of a Bible-believing Church, Complete and pass an interview, background check, and training before starting.
