Job Description:


The Woods Church is a community of ordinary people with diverse backgrounds. We're teachers, plumbers, CNC operators, assembly line workers, lawyers, sales people, unemployed, retirees, and stay-at-home moms. We're black, white, and everything in between. Our community consists of students, young people, singles and families of all shapes and sizes. God has transformed our lives, so we gather together to demonstrate our love for God, love for people, and to serve our local and global communities. 


At The Woods Church, kids matter. In fact, there are few things as important to us as the spiritual development of the children at The Woods Church. At this time, we are looking for an Early Childhood Director that is passionate not only about physically caring for the children at The Woods Church but is also passionate about partnering with us and God to help them grow spiritually. 



Our Early Childhood ministry includes children ages birth through five years old. Each week we minister to over 100 children (and their families) in our Early Childhood ministry on Sunday morning and during our mid-week activities. 


We’re looking for someone with the ability to develop and lead teams of adult volunteers who will lead and care for infants, toddlers, and children getting ready to move into our elementary ministry. This person is a seasoned leader who can build a structure of volunteer leaders who lead volunteers who lead and care for kids. Essentially, we’re looking for a strong and dynamic leader who can minister to kids through adult leaders and volunteers. The person in this role must prioritize developing adults to lead the ministry first and foremost. 


The Early Childhood Director will not only lead and care for adult leaders/volunteers but will also be responsible for integrating curriculum that emphasizes spiritual disciplines that align with our spiritual pathway at The Woods Church, creating and implementing policies and procedures, create and work with a lay ministry team to assist in directing the ministry, create/design weekly publications to both volunteers and parents, and more.
