Orlando Children’s Church (OCC) is a 501(c)(3) children’s ministry dedicated to reaching at-risk students through physical nourishment, spiritual renewal, and the cultivation of authentic relationships. They desire to see students being transformed by the power of the Gospel, making them world-changing leaders who positively impact their own communities.
OCC is currently looking for volunteers to serve as bus drivers, vacation Bible school teachers and especially bus monitors.
Orlndo Children's Church begins the moment kids step on the bus and ends the moment they step off. For many, the ride to church is a good portion of their Saturday morning. Monitoring gives you a lot of extra time to love on and invest in the kids from your route, as well as meet their families and see where they live.Bus monitors assist with those children who need constant love and redirection while on the bus ride. OCC has children who are open to the love of God that they cannot bring because these kids need more structure and supervision on the bus. They do not want to endanger the children riding the buses or others on the roads by asking drivers to watch the road and a bus full of children at the same time, which is where the bus monitors come in! They are looking for college students and adults to commit to at least 2 Saturdays a month for monitoring.
