Job Description:





Illuminate Church is a new church that launched in March of 2015 with a vision of reaching people who don’t attend church in the Augusta area. We are looking for someone to come along side of us and help our kids ministry achieve the next level. Our church is a new, yet growing congregation ranging in attendance on Sunday mornings between 50 to 75 people. Currently, our kids ministry sees anywhere between 15 and 25 kids on Sunday mornings in ages ranging from infants through 5th grade.  Although there is currently no leadership in our Kids ministry, many volunteers have collaborated under a common vision to love, pray for and mentor children on Sunday mornings. However, we are in need of a leader who understands kids ministry and leading adult volunteers.




Illuminate Church meets every Sunday morning, 10:15am at Westside High School. This is a great location because it is conveniently located right off of I-20 and Washington Rd which is centralized between Martinez, North Augusta and much of the West Augusta areas.




The following candidate must have achieved or be working on a 4 year degree from an accredited college. The following candidate must be in good standing with their current church and must leave with an attitude of calling to Illuminate.


The candidate must have an understanding and a calling to “build.” The candidate must also have a love and desire to know and grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus as they lead others in this new and growing ministry.





Volunteer Management

It is crucial to the success of Illuminate Kids that the Kids Director has the ability to successfully work with volunteers. This will be one of the main responsibilities of the Illuminate Kids Director. It is our goal that the director builds a sustainable team of volunteers that can provide ownership of the kid’s ministry. The director will also be responsible for developing the volunteers, celebrating the volunteers and managing the volunteer schedule.
