A children's pastor helps kids develop a relationship with Jesus Christ. This typically includes developing regular church programs, such as Sunday School classes or mid-week events; however, some churches prefer children's pastors to mentor parents and more directly partner with them in the spiritual formation of their children. The responsibilities of a children's pastor vary according to the needs and size of the church. You may also be a part of the overall church leadership team and have responsibilities beyond your job description.



Children's pastors need to have a heart for kids, even in situations where they may administrate a large volunteer workforce. Other needed skills include the ability to plan activities, deal with unexpected circumstances, staff classrooms, address emergencies and guide groups of children. Story-telling skills are typically an asset, as is someone who can move families, children and volunteers under a united vision.


Regular Programming

Kids require age-appropriate opportunities to learn and interact with God. Part of your role includes developing a program that uses curriculum you've selected or written to develop their faith. Some denominations and churches will pre-select your materials and resources for you, but you will need to review and adapt them for use within your ministry.


Special Events

A children's pastor is generally responsible for special children's ministry events, such as Vacation Bible School, Fall Festival, Summer Camps, etc. These seasonal activities are a way for you to reach new families and connect current ones in the church; however, you will need to determine the best events for our congregation. Other opportunities include baby dedications and parenting classes that help you minister to an entire household.
