Job Description:

*Part-time OR Full-time position


Torrance First Presbyterian Church is located in Southern California. Our Children’s Ministry (1st-5th graders) is a vibrant section of our Education Department with 35 students and 9 devoted teachers.

We are looking for a pastor who is:

            a.         M. Div. Graduate or current student of an accredited seminary school.

            b.         Must have a family-centered ministry mindset, recognizing the important

role parents play in the development of students’ faith and the ministry.

  1. Strong leadership qualities while still being able to work alongside pastoral and volunteer-leadership teams- embodying servant-leadership.
  2. Previous ministry experience (whether pastoral or voluntary) required.

The Children’s pastor would be in charge of Sunday service, weekly Bible Studies, leading volunteer teachers, and seasonal programs (ie VBS, Children’s Day, Christmas program).


TFPC is currently reviving under the strong spiritual leadership of our new, recently installed, senior pastor. The Children’s pastor must be willing to work under the senior pastor, to work towards a holistic ministry, and must be flexible during this time of revival.


The Children’s pastor is someone who will work alongside the church and the children’s family to plant seeds in our students’ hearts, that they would grow in faith. This is not to be done solely through weekly sermons or Bible Studies, but through the relationship the Children’s pastor has with her/his students and families.


This position is part-time, 15 hours a week. 

Depending on the needs of the applicant as well as the church, this position can be expanded to full-time.
