Invest in kids. Transform your faith.

Thank you for learning more about volunteering with KidzTown. We hope you can take some time to look over the different roles and opportunities below to serve the kids in our Gateway community.


We strive to make it easy and fun for all our volunteers!


Materials are prepared and provided for you so you just show up on Sunday morning. For most volunteer positions, you serve one month on and one month off.


Not sure if KidzTown is for you? You can always shadow in KidzTown to see what being a volunteer looks like and if it's a good fit. Email volunteers@gatewaychurch.org and let us know you'd like to try a team and shadow in KidzTown!
