Philosophy of Ministry
Our philosophy is derived from Deuteronomy 6:4-9 as God declares that He is to be worshiped as the one true God and loved with one’s entire being. This command is followed by another – that parents are to teach their children to do the same.
Therefore, the children’s teachers at Radiant Church are to come alongside the parents to “tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and His might, and the wonders that He has done” (Psalm 78:4) so that “they should set their hope in God…” (Psalm 78:7a). Radiant Kids is a supplement to the home but never intended to be a replacement.
Before joining the Radiant Teachers Volunteer team, we require all applicants to be a member of Radiant Church. Then request they fill out an application with a thorough background check. We find out more about their talents by having the prospective teacher shadow a couple classes to see where their gifts can best be utilized. We are deeply blessed by our amazing volunteers and treat the safety and well-being of our kids with the utmost care and attention.
