Job Description:
First Church of God is seeking a person to lead their Children’s Ministry beginning May 31. This is a part-time position. Hours and pay negotiable.

This person will be responsible for vision and oversight of ministry to children ages infant through 6th grade.

Currently we run a Sunday morning children's church, a Wednesday evening children's program, a summer VBS and an Easter Egg Hunt. The new director will have much leeway in casting vision, choosing curriculum, and implementing strategies. Candidate will have great support from a Sr. Pastor who actively serves in the children's ministry and has an affinity toward children and their families.

First Church of God seeks to meet people where they are and love them to where Christ wants them to be. We believe in using culturally relevant methods to proclaim the historical Truth that God wants a relationship with us through Jesus Christ.

Ministry to children must be a primary focus of the Church today. Research has shown that we have a smaller window of time in which to reach people for Christ. The majority of Christians make a commitment to Christ before the age of 14. Our Children’s Ministry Director is a key part of helping First Church of God fulfill a very important need and responsibility.

send resume with written philosophy of children's ministry before April 17 to:
