Children’s Pastor, San Francisco, CA
In the heart of the mission district of San Francisco, a missional church with over 1500 attendees meets weekly to worship God and to share with that city the message of Jesus Christ in a fresh, creative, and compassionate way. Their style and aesthetic is one that is informal, authentic and inviting, designed to reflect both the intimacy with and awe of God. From the style of music and creative expression, to the teaching, this church seeks to create a culturally relevant environment that inspires worship, healing, and spiritual growth.

This isn't the suburbs where large parcels of accessible land in shiny new neighborhoods allow for mega-thousand square foot facilities. Quite the opposite. This church is right in the middle of all things San Francisco, still meeting in the same space it occupied years ago, yet growing and reaching scores of new people and introducing them gospel of Jesus Christ weekly. The church considers to be a relatively small light in a dark city.

At best apathetic and at worst openly hostile, the city is in dire need of churches like this one to continue to thrive and grow.

And in order to help this church do all that it can to reach people, we have partnered with them to conduct a national search for a Children's Pastor. Currently, over 120 children attend the church on a weekly basis. We're looking for an experienced Children's Pastor who also shares the missional heart of a diverse and unique church such as this and who is driven to do children's ministry in a relevant, creative, and excellent way.

Are you that kind of missionary minister? Can you appreciate and accept the challenge of ministry to the city?

We are seeking a Children's Pastor with these qualifications and skills

  • Children's Ministry leadership experience, including supervisory experience of paid staff and volunteers
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Experience with diversity and different cultures
  • Experience with family ministry - developing and providing resources for parents and families
  • Experience developing and leading creative outreaches for kids
  • Solid understanding of curriculum development and adaptation
  • Administrative ability, including implementation of security procedures, budgeting, event planning, and training
  • A strong desire to minister in an urban environment
