Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:

Epic is a small, multicultural American Baptist church in Fullerton, CA.  We are not evangelical by creed and hold strong Trinitarian and Anabaptist convicitons.  We see the world through a lens of community, justice, and healing because this is who Jesus has shown himself to be. We are proud of our Asian American heritage and love our city. Our deep hope is that all people would feel loved and empowered

through the work of the Holy Spirit and we are looking for someone to help us empower our children and youth as full members of our church community.


The goal of our Kids’ Ministry is for children to actively participate in the life of Epic Church so that Christ and His Kingdom are formed in all of us. It is a holistic, integrated vision that spills over the confines of Sundays. 


This job requires the following foundational duties:

  • Effectively run a Sunday morning program for children 0 - 18
  • Able to cultivate relationships with a broad range of people, especially parents
  • Possess a developmental understanding of both psychology and faith
  • Create a safe environment for all

What is not so obvious is that we are looking for someone who is relationally agile

enough to build missional teams to love our children. We believe this happens through

relationship and conversation more than position and program. This requires someone

who can lead us to new answers because they listen, not because they possess them.

We’re a little different, and we’re looking for someone willing to think outside the box

with us. It is exciting stuff, but challenging. Interested?

  • Direct Sunday morning Kids Ministry program
  • Develop or adapt age-appropriate curriculum that incorporates and reflects Epic values and vision

  • Build healthy and effective ministry teams
  • Recruit, train and develop ministry leaders
  • Foster community and facilitate mutual support amongst Kids Ministry volunteers
  • Cultivate relationships with parents, including regular communication
  • Actively participate in Epic community, including completing membership class and joining a house church


  • Prefer 5 – 10 years of ministry or teaching experience
  • Require a Bachelor’s degree; prefer a Master’s degree in a related field
  • Experience with effective communication in cross-cultural contexts
  • Experience recruiting and managing teams
  • Demonstrated ability to work collaboratively
  • Adaptability and an openness to learning
  • Possesses a vital faith in Jesus
  • Must pass a background check

Salary Package:
