Central Baptist Church is looking for a Children’s Pastor that is passionate about discipling kids and parents. The Children’s Pastor will set the direction and cast vision for a growing volunteer team to keep pace with the thriving church as it expands for the Kingdom.
Central Baptist Church serves over 150 kids age birth through 5th grade during both the Sunday morning and midweek programs each week. We believe in discipleship and value Christian education with a strong focus on parent involvement and support.
With smiling faces, the amazing volunteers receive mom and dad’s most precious possession into a warm and colorful environment that is well maintained to make parents feel secure and comfortable. Early Childhood covers infants up to 2 1/2 years of age.
At the peak of their curiosity, preschoolers have a strong desire to learn more about God and here at CBC we want them to know Him in a very real way. Utilizing “The Gospel Project” these 2 ½, 3, 4 and 5 year olds are taken chronologically on a journey through the bible in a fun and interactive way. During Sunday School and morning worship services, preschool kids experience a Sunday school type setting with craft, story and activities. We also have a Wednesday night service utilizing the “All Stars for Jesus” program. This includes a craft, story, and fun activities. These ministry areas are well staffed with dedicated volunteers who love kids and love to teach.
Kids experience Sunday School and Children’s Church with a strong desire to learn more about God using the “The Gospel Project” curriculum as well. There are great volunteer ratios in all of these ministry areas with people who are passionate about presenting the Bible and taking kids deeper into God’s Word. Central Baptist Church offers “Kids on a Mission” for Elementary ages on Wednesday nights as well.

The vision of Central Baptist is clear; “We glorify God by making disciples, equipping families, and serving the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.” Discipleship is at the core of everything done at CBC. We do this through all of our Sunday School, Children’s Church, All Stars for Jesus, Kids on a Mission, Children’s Choir, Vacation Bible School, Fall Festival, and all other Kid based events for every age group. Supporting and equipping parents as they spiritually lead their children is not something Central Baptist Church just talks about; they live it and cast vision around it. This is a church that truly wants to see parents fully embracing, resourced and prepared, for their most important role as the spiritual leader of their kids.
