Tots (0 - Preschool)

Contact: Julie Jensen 408.269.5779

What are Tots?

Tots is our nursery program here at SJOB! We cater to children ages 0 through Preschool.

How does it work?

All Tots are will enjoy a time of music, snack, a story, and free play. They are well supervised and diapers/potty time is handled soley by the director or the Family Ministry Coordinator.

How can I help?

If you love working with little ones and are interested in volunteering every 4-6 weeks, contact Stephanie Ryan for more information. All volunteers over the age of 18 are fingerprinted to ensure the safety of our Tots.

  • Worship Team

    Contact: Larry Waters 408.269.5779

    Sunday morning is a special time—usually the only time where the entire church body gathers in worship together. The worship team’s mission is to make this unique time a heartfelt and life-changing experience with God. Thus, a worship team participant does not always play an instrument or sing. There are many ways to get involved in preparing for Sunday morning worship. In addition to instrumentalists/singers, we have special need of people to run sound, prepare PowerPoint slides, and author creative lighting scenes.

    The purpose of the First Touch Ministry is to help facilitate continued growth and effectiveness. We have embarked on a renewed emphasis on our First Touch Ministry. Our focus is on being intentional about helping visitors feel welcome by making San Jose Open Bible more inviting. If you are interested in being a Sunday morning greeter or parking lot attendant, please contact Stephanie.

    Men's Ministry

    "Christian men are fathers,husbands,brothers, and sons. Men have important responsibilities and the Bible gives great instruction for Men of God."

    The purpose of the Men's Ministry at SJOB is to have fellowship, grow in our faith, and to support one another. Our Men's Breakfast takes place on the fourth Saturday of the month (unless otherwise noted).Each month we will have a different speaker that will provide encouragement, facilitate growth and offer guidance by speaking about their walk with God or unique profession.

    Women's Ministry

    Contact: Rachel Sayre 408.269.5779

    We have been working to bring you a safe place to share, to learn and to grow in the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that we will learn where God is leading each one of us and that we will be able to pray together, encourage and support each other. We are looking forward to what God has in store for each one of us.

    Connection Groups

    Contact: Stephanie Ryan 408.269.5779

    God calls us to grow in our faith. Read His Word. Connect with others. That is what Connection Groups are all about. SJOB wants to make Connection Groups a consistent part of our culture.

    In order to make that happen, we need help with the following:

    Leaders: People to lead Bible studies/Connection Groups

    Host Homes: Some people may not necessarily want to lead a group but are willing to host the group in their home.

    This is a fun way to meet and get connected with people at church that you might not otherwise interact with.
