Denominations: Non-Denominational

Job Type: Part-Time

Job Description:

After 12 years of enjoying worshiping and continuing in faith together as a strong base of long-standing, mature believers, we have received a revived sense of calling from God as a church. With the recent addition of a Pastor in charge of mission, alongside the Senior Pastor, a renewed vision, mission, purpose and direction has been established and we have begun preparing ourselves for intentional growth and the reach of the roughly 3 million people within our area who are predominantly unchurched.


Our vision is to see every life we come in contact with be impacted by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and build a church of strong, passionate Disciples of Christ that are on a mission to see lives be made great through the greatness of God.


We are prayerfully seeking the right enthusiastic, spirit-filled person with a passion for reaching families and making a lasting impact in the lives of children to come alongside our leadership team to develop and launch a dynamic Children’s Ministry experience. As we currently do not have Children’s Ministry, this will be a startup ministry position so the ideal candidate will be a dependable, innovative and strategic self-starter ready to embrace the opportunity and challenge.


PLEASE NOTE: We are open to hiring for either a Children's Ministry Director or a Children's Pastor position dependent on calling and credentials. Please reach out if you feel you would be a good fit for either one of the two.


Salary will be part-time to start with the expectation of a one year commitment by both parties and a goal of growing and developing it into a full-time salaried position within that timeframe.


Please send resumes along with any inquiries to



  • Demonstrate a strong passion for and relationship with Christ
  • Commitment to continually growing in your faith and relationship
  • Open to spiritual gifts and the power of the Holy Spirit working in the church today
  • Possess a kingdom mindset and passion for The Church

  • We are open to considering any applicants regardless of education and experience based on character, competence, calling and chemistry
