What does it look like to serve in DiscoveryLand?
Can you remember somebody who encouraged you as a child to grow in your walk with Jesus? Somebody who was always there for you and cared about what happened in your life?
We believe every child needs someone who knows their name and what’s happening in their life. Somebody who shows up predictably and consistently over time. Somebody who says and does the same things that a loving parent would. When we choose to serve in DiscoveryLand, we’re creating an environment where children feel safe and significant, allowing them to flourish in their faith.
And serving is a great way to meet new people and get connected at church! In DiscoveryLand you get to work with an amazing team of volunteers AND help create a wonderful place for kids to discover God in a fun and exciting way. Find your place to serve in this exciting and rewarding ministry at both the FAC Deerfoot and Southwest campuses.
Try a Sneak-a-Peek to join us during 1 service to observe any of the volunteer roles. See how DiscoveryLand operates and experience the support and encouragement that comes from being part of a team, first-hand! This opportunity is open to Grades 7-12 and adults.

DiscoveryLand Volunteer Roles
Our regular volunteers consistently provide a safe, clean and fun place for the children in DiscoveryLand during the ministry year, September to June. There are a different roles to suit anyone’s gifts and abilities.
- classroom leaders
- worship leaders
- 1 on 1 assistants
- tech team
- computer check-in assistants
When our regular DiscoveryLand volunteers take a break, we depend on the help of Seasonal Volunteers for Summer Serve (July/August), Easter, and Christmas. Seasonal Volunteers receive screening and training to assist during these special times of the year.
Occasional Volunteers complete the screening and training process and step in as classroom assistants, in any classroom that needs them. These volunteers could be on a schedule (i.e. once per month) or could step into a classroom during the service when needed.
Every summer, DiscoveryLand offers day camps where children and their friends can have a super-fun, Bible-based camp experience. Make a difference in a kid’s life this summer and volunteer for a week at camp (half-day or full-days).
