Job Description:

Stuart Congregational Church in beautiful, sunny South Florida is seeking a Director of Children’s Ministries who will serve as the primary leader for the children’s ministries at SCC. The successful candidate will exhibit a passion for the next generation, and their families. He or she will be highly relational, with the ability to also think administratively. This full-time position will have responsibility for the staff and volunteers who lead all children from 6-weeks to fifth grade. He or she will lead and grow Christ-centered, engaging, and relevant ministry for children and their parents.

 

SCC subscribes to the faith-at-home philosophy of family ministry as a means to resource, encourage, and support parents as partners in the spiritual nurture of their children. Familiarity with the “Orange” movement is helpful. The successful candidate, however, must not be satisfied with only reaching the children of those who already attend SCC – but should creatively cast vision and execute programming with a goal toward reaching new families.

 

The successful candidate will be creative, imaginative, with enthusiastic drive and facility with volunteer recruitment, nurture and retention strategies. He or she will be a team player - valuing a collaborative approach to ministry - working well alongside other staff. Finally, the successful candidate will be a loyal champion for the mission and vision of Stuart Congregational Church.

 

Candidates should have at least a four-year degree from an accredited college or university, and a minimum of two years of children’s ministry experience. A mature faith, emotional and relational stability, and a youthful exuberance are important character traits for the Director of Children’s Ministries.
