Champion’s Club

Bay Area Church desires to minister to ALL children and their families. We are building a team to serve children with special needs on Sunday Mornings. Currently, we partner a buddy to accompany the child in a classroom. In the near future, we will have 2 specially equipped “Champion’s Club” classrooms, to minister more effectively to kids through 6th Grade. You don’t have to be professionally educated as a special needs teacher to be a buddy (or serve in Champion’s Club), but those of you with this training would be extremely helpful to our ministry. Otherwise, if you are interested and passionate to serve with these kids, please email for more information or you may apply here:
