Every SuperKids Mission needs a Mission Director who will oversee the program, select and train volunteers, promote the program to area children and their families, and evaluate the program on an ongoing basis. In addition, each SuperKids Mission is usually supported by a Mission Team. These volunteers assist the director in leading the program and teaching the curriculum to the children. We highly recommend that these adult leaders go through an interview process before selection and program training after selection. A Mission Team could be made up of adults from a local church, a youth group or college-age group, or any people who have a heart to reach children. Churches could see these Mission Teams as an extension of their existing ministry. Scripture Union stresses the importance of each SuperKids mission program being conducted in partnership with a local church or group of churches. This provides the support endorsement of the partnership churches. It also ensures the ongoing involvement of follow-up for children and their families after the SuperKids program.
The amount of resources needed for a SuperKids Mission will vary. The Mission Director position is usually a volunteer position, but you could have an existing staff person run the program (a children’s pastor, for example). The Mission Team is usually a group of volunteers, so funds for salaries are not needed. Financial resources are needed to purchase the SuperKids Mission Kit, print promotional materials (flyers to children and their families), and purchase other supplies (listed in the SuperKids® curricula). Often, the local church partnering with the SuperKids Mission will help with many of these needs.
