One of the best ways to get connected here at Lakewood is through serving. People often say that their service teams become their family.
One of the best ways you can get connected and build strong relationship at Lakewood is by joining a TEAM or GROUP!
Detailed below are the steps to becoming a Lakewood volunteer:
Once you complete your application, you will receive a “Next Steps” email from us that requests you authorize us to run a criminal background check on you. This is an important part of our volunteer onboarding and child safety program. It helps us place the right volunteers in the right places around the church!
In the “Next Steps” email, you will also be asked to register for a volunteer interview. This interview allows us to get to know you better and is also an important part of our volunteer onboarding process. We have lots of days and times, in person and on Zoom, for your convenience.
STUDENT MINISTRY VOLUNTEERS ONLY:
4. REFERENCES – In your application, we asked you for some references from your family and places you’ve worked or volunteers in the past. Because this is another important part of helping us ensure the right volunteers are placed in the right areas, we ask that you please talk to your references and encourage them to be watching for an email and/or call from us!
5. CHILD SAFETY TRAINING – If you are working with our students and children, you want to make sure you are well equipped to deal with any issues of child abuse. Because of that we require all our staff and volunteers working with minors to take this amazing training. You will receive an email from Lakewood@MinistrySafet.com with a link to the training, so keep your eyes out for it in your inbox!
