Coaches play a vital role at TeenStreet. You have the closest contact with the teens. You feel their heartbeat, laugh with them, cry with them, pray with them and help to develop their friendship with Jesus.
You will have many opportunities to show and share what Jesus has done in your life. This can be life-changing for the teens. Teens need a caring adult as a friend, example, authority figure and challenge giver.
As a Coach at TeenStreet, you will be responsible for the teens in one NET group, which consists of up to six teenagers of the same gender. Coaches are responsible for leading the NET times, meeting with their team in free time, keeping their teens accountable, spending personal time with each teen and being a friend.
Each Coach will meet with their M&M Couple* each day and will have access to training and other resources.
To be a Coach at TeenStreet, you must be over 20, love Jesus and be ready for an intense adventure. We need and appreciate a wide range of ages. Contrary to what most people believe, this generation of teens desires to connect with people that have some experience in life. This is often missing in normal life, as they don’t have good adult role models.
Not only will Coaches have a chance to build relationships at TS, but we pray that this experience will lead to support and interaction between youth leaders and their teens throughout the year.
