Job Description:

Do you possess an unquenchable love for Jesus?

Do you love, love, love children?

Are you a leader of leaders?

Is your heart passionate about sharing Jesus with others and engaging children to become fully devoted and committed to Jesus?

Do you believe the local church is God’s “plan A” for reaching the world?

Does the Great Commission make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? Does it make you want to say with Isaiah: “Here am I. Send me!”

Do you envision a Christ- and gospel-centered Children’s Ministry that enthusiastically engages children?

Do you believe the Bible to be God’s inspired, inerrant Word?

Do you fully agree that Christian parents are the primary disciplers of their children and the church plays a supporting role?

Are you eager to equip and empower a large cross-generational base of volunteers (teens through older adults)?  We currently have 400+ volunteers annually.

Do you believe that apart from Jesus you can do nothing? Are you drastically reliant on the Holy Spirit to empower you to do the ministry God has called you to do? Is dependent prayer a way of life for you?

Do you want to work in a ministry context where team is not just a buzz word but a living breathing reality?

Do summer camps for unbelievers and believers within the community and our regional urban partners excite you?

Would you like to see missionaries come out of the ministry God has given you or perhaps the next Billy Graham or perhaps powerful business people and parents who love Jesus Christ supremely?

Do you dream of giving your days on earth to something that will outlive you?

If you answered a whole-hearted yes to all of the above questions, then we would like to explore a possible ministry relationship with you!
