Job Description:






Shelter Cove Community Church is a healthy and growing church that is looking for a full-time Children’s Director to join the team.  The church began in 2001 and has continually experienced God’s blessing and faithfulness.

As a Bible believing and Bible teaching church, we major in love, grace and truth.  We have a passion for our church to be healthy and authentic in our pursuit of following Jesus and have a huge heart for those that don’t know Jesus, with an increasing desire to reach our community.

We have been experiencing many young families coming to our church.  Children are a huge priority for us and we are praying for an organized and relational leader to take our children’s ministry to the next level.

In the last year we have hired a new Executive Pastor and a full-time ministry leader over Outreach and Missions. We are praying for a Children’s Director that will fit well with the culture of our staff and church, who has an understanding of and experience in large-scale children’s ministry, effective in recruiting, training and mobilizing teams and have a clear vision for children’s ministry that supports the ministry of the church as a whole.


Reaching people. We want to make inviting friends to hear about Jesus a part of our DNA, as a church and as a people.

Making Disciples. We desire to see people meeting weekly in fellowship, connecting over God’s Word, and living out our faith.

Sending believers. We live to tell others about Jesus, locally as well as around the world. It is our calling and part of our culture.



This position will oversee the vision, values and mission of Shelter Cove’s children’s ministry (infant - 5th grade). This key leader will protect the Shelter Cove vision; champion the recruitment and development of all children’s ministry staff and volunteers, and ensure a fantastic environment at all weekend services so optimal learning can take place.  If you have previous employment and experience leading a children’s ministry in a church or Christian education setting, enjoy building and inspiring effective volunteer teams, and champion the spiritual gifts of leadership, discernment, and teaching, please consider applying.
