Minister to Children and Students at Ellaville Baptist Church


The mission of the ministry to children and students at EBC is to partner with parents to make disciples of the next generation. Since the Scriptures are clear that God has given parents the primary responsibility in the discipleship of their children (Deut. 6:4-9; Eph. 6:4) and knowing that equipping parents is by far the most effective evangelism and discipleship strategy, this leader will manage and lead programs that minister to children, students, and their parents that support the overall mission of EBC. This leader will also minister personally to students and parents through building relationships, discipleship, and pastoral care.
