CROSSWALK MSM support team is for adults/older teens who are unable make a monthly/multi-night commitment to the CROSSWALK Ministry but are still willing and excited to support our ministry to the youth. Support Team members are invaluable to our ministry as they allow our Core members to focus their attention on the youth before/during/after our sessions. Support Team is also an excellent opportunity to meet our MSM families and build community.
Position: Sign-In/Sign-Out Leader
Description: The sign-in/sign-out leader is instrumental in welcoming and saying goodbye to our young people to the Eden Center. The sign-in leader is responsible for welcoming our youth as they enter the Eden Center, insuring that they sign in to the log book and receive their name tags. The sign-in leader may also be responsible for insuring the youth pick up any materials on the sign-in table that they will need for the early portion of the evening. Conversely, the sign-out leader is responsible for saying farewell to our youth as they leave the Eden Center, insuring that they sign out and answer the “sign-out question” and return their name tags. The sign-out leader may also be responsible for insuring materials used during the evening are returned to the sign-in/sign-out table.
- Friendly, welcoming attitude
- Good memory for names/faces
- Ability to give clear instructions
Time Commitment: 30 minutes, single time.
On Sundays, Sign-In Leaders arrive by 6:45 pm and remain until 7:15 pm while Sign-Out Leaders arrive by 8:00pm and remain until 8:30 pm.
Position: Hospitality Leader
Description: The Hospitality leader is instrumental in laying out and serving the delicious snacks kindly donated by our MSM families. Our MSM youth often arrive to our sessions hungry and by taking the time to receive and lay out the snacks the hospitality leader supports our MSM Core Team by allowing them to focus their attention on our MSM small groups and activities.
- Friendly/Welcoming Attitude
- Comfortable setting up without direction (past initial instruction as to the location of needed items – i.e. paper plates, cups, etc)
- Ability to give clear instructions (ex: “Everyone may have 1 bag of chips and 1 piece of fruit.”)
- Comfortable serving/clean up (as needed)
Time Commitment: 30-45 minutes, single time. The Hospitality Leader arrives and lays out the plates/cups/napkins (if needed) & fills the water jug. The HL then collects the donated items as they are brought by the youth, and then lays them out on the table for snack time (approximately 7:15 pm). On special occasions (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas) the HL may be asked to stay through the session (90 minutes) to assist with serving and clean up.
