God Squad Leaders and Youth

Deadline for sign up was June 15.

Please contact BJ to sign up after the deadline.


We need YOU to make Youth Force a success. Take a look at all the things that need to be done and find where you fit it. Then call BJ at 918-691-0000 to let him know how you want to help.

HOSPITALITY HELPERS – As busses full of youth arrive on July 15, from 2:00 until dinner, you can show them the church, help them find their sleeping quarters, and get them settled in. You will be provided with a special t-shirt, and dinner.

CLEANING CREW – On Friday, July 20, beginning 11:00 a.m. we need helpers to get us ready for Sunday morning.

PRAYER WARRIORS – Help us surround this entire event with prayer!

GOD SQUAD LEADERS – You will be responsible for a small group of youth with another leader (two God Squad Leaders per group). You will get to stay at the church all week building relationships with the youth on your small group (God Squad) as well as your homeowner. It is probably the most rewarding positions. You are guaranteed to see Christ every day!

TECH ANGELS – (Filled!!!!) – Home improvement experts (or nearly experts) will show God Squads of 8 to 10 youth and 2 adults how to make repairs on the job sites. Your skills will be matched with the jobs that need to be done on site. You will be impressed with how hard the youth work for their homeowners. Skills needed include roofing, painting, sheet rocking, deck building, ramp building, siding hanging, and other household jobs.

NURSE(s)/DOCTOR(s) – (Filled!!!!!) Medical professionals are needed to be around to help administer medication, in the event of illness, or help when accidents happen. We hope to have enough healthcare providers that they won’t have to sleep at the church every night.

SHOWER HOUSE HOSTS – Open your home to about 10 people to shower and relax for a couple of hours about 3:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. You will need to have at least 2 showers and be willing to provide some light snacks. Having a pool is a bonus!

KITCHEN HELPERS – We will be feeding about 200+ people each day. Even if you can only help a few hours a day, it will be very helpful. Maybe you can stop in before work or drop by after work:

  • Breakfast – from 5:30 to 8:30 a.m.
  • Lunchroom Stocker – from 6:30 to 8:00-ish a.m. to help set out food so the youth can pack their own lunches
  • Dinner helpers – from 3:30 to 7:30-ish.
  • Dessert Makers – If you would like to help by bringing in desserts for the evening meal, please contact Tim McHugh at 918-829-2431.

GO-FORs – (4 more needed) – Pick up supplies and take them out to the job sites as needed. Work is usually done between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Having a truck is very helpful, but we might be able to find one to loan out to you.

HOLY HAULERS – If you have a truck, we need you to help us haul off trash and debris from the worksites. This could be done during the day or in the evenings after work.

DAYTIME CHURCH CLEANUP – With 150 people staying at the church, we might just make a few messes, and it would be a HUGE help if you could come up and freshen up the place while everyone is out working.

AV PEOPLE – Worship in the evenings is AMAZING!!! If you know how to make the sanctuary look and sound great, we need you. We would also like to broadcast it over the interwebs. We can train you up so you’ll know what you are doing.

SET UP AND RESET – (a lot more people needed) – We need people all week long to transition – meaning move tables around, set up chairs, etc. We especially need help Sunday afternoon, July 15, we need to transform the church into a space that will comfortably accommodate all those youth and adult helpers. And especially on Friday afternoon, July 20, to turn the church back into a church again.

PHOTOGRAPHERS/VIDEOGRAPHERS – So many amazing things happen during the week that we want to capture as much of the magic as possible.

FINANCIAL SPONSORS/DONATIONS – Youth Force doesn’t cost our church any money, but with additional donations, we can take on larger projects, and make a bigger impact for the Kingdom of Heaven! Click here to donate. Please designate your donation “Youth Force.”

If you saw one, two, three, or more things you can do, please call BJ at 918-691-0000 or email him at BJDanner@ClaremoreFUMC.org.
