Volunteering to Work with Children and Students

Welcome to our volunteer page for children and student workers. Here at First Church, we are about Loving God, Loving People, and Changing the World. It is also a high value for us to provide a safe and nurturing environment for the children and students that are entrusted to us.

The following criteria must be met prior to volunteering or working with or around children and students:

  • Must be an active participant here at First Church Melbourne for a minimum of six months
  • Must complete the Child/Student Protection Worker Application
  • Must complete the interview process with the supervising staff person (you will be contacted)
  • Must provide no less than three references for us to contact regarding your application
  • Must complete a background screening as required
  • Must complete the Child/Student Protection Policy

Below are links to the necessary forms. Some will need to be printed out, completed, and turned in to the office, and others can be completed online.

If you have any questions, please call the church office at 321.723.6761 and speak to our Administrative Director or e-mail us at
