Catalina cares less about building an army of people to fill seats and more about the people in the seats. They aim to have an intimate, personal approach to ministry that strives to be authentic and real. 


In the 1950s, a group of families established Catalina Church. As the church aged and leadership exchanged hands, it eventually became more driven by a social gospel and was dying, literally and figuratively. In 2004, current pastor, Ted Soderholm, was hired. His focus became restoring Jesus as the center of the Gospel, and establishing a relational/evangelical model of church culture that would encourage growth. Catalina Church is all about making life simple. Connect groups meet just after the Sunday message to discuss life and the application of the day’s sermon. Catalina has a huge heart for families and is constantly tearing down barriers and stereotypes by being one of the most generous giving churches in the area.


Catalina Church is looking for a loving Children’s Pastor who will be responsible for the development and administration of the ministry for children, birth – 5th grade. The successful candidate will equip volunteers and parents to reach and disciple children to be vibrant followers of Christ who learn to walk with God, serve the church, and understand their personal mission in life. The successful candidate will lead the Children’s Ministry, but more importantly, will live life with the people and children of Catalina Church. Lunches with volunteers and church attendees, coordinating “play dates” between stay at home moms, and interaction with local elementary schools are just some of the examples of “life on life” expected at Catalina Church. Being in the community and involved with people is far more important than the weekly task list, which is why Catalina church has no offices.


Formal education is not a predetermining factor in the selection of the new Children’s Pastor. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of working in a setting committed to reaching the unreached, working within a community, and promoting innovation through collaboration. They will show a high degree of effectiveness in working and communicating in a low oversight environment. 


Located at the base of the Catalina Mountains on the north side of Tucson, AZ, this opportunity provides a candidate a truly remarkable view and a list of fabulous amenities. At just over 9,000 feet, Mt. Lemmon resides as a hiker’s paradise and is also listed as the southernmost ski area in the country. This resort city is loaded with golf courses and other recreation activities (biking, triathlon, camping, etc.). With warmer summer months come the benefits of moderate winter seasons for those who love the outdoors. Major employers in the area include Ratheon, Honeywell, the University of Arizona (only a few miles away), a diverse healthcare industry and a large military presence with Davis-Monthan Air Force Base nearby. Major downtown renovations and upgrades ensure that this area will be vibrant and growing for years to come. With Phoenix only a 90-minute drive away, Tucson gets to play the part of “fun playground” to the big city's “congested metropolis."
