If a parent, there is a God honoring, fun loving relationship with children which models Godly parenting
This person must have a personal, passionate, contagious relationship with Jesus Christ and a high value for worship. As well there is a personal hunger to be “on the growing edge” of personal, spiritual and professional growth.

Calvary stands by the premise that it is the responsibility of the parents to raise the children and the role of the church is to come alongside and support and encourage, equip and provide training and information for our parents to raise their families in a way that honors God. It is expected that this position will develop programs and provide information that will allow for that training and equipping to occur. This position will also be a resource for parents to come to with questions about the developmental stages of their children.
This person will also be the pastoral shepherd to all Children’s ministry staff (building loving, encouraging relationships which lead them into spiritual maturity),.
As well this person will have an understanding of each level of childhood development from birth-6th grade and the affects each level has on parenting issues and an understanding of how spiritual formation develops and is recognized in a child with clear benchmarks laid out for transitional stages.
