Job Description:

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 a small church developing an intentional growth strategy to reach the roughly 3 million people within our area who are predominantly unchurched.

Ideally, this person has experience working in a leadership position. 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.


While we are looking for a Children's Ministry Director, we are open to the idea of adjusting the postion/growth strategy to incorporate a Children's/Family Pastor instead if it was the right fit dependent on calling and credentials.

  • Build and maintain a strong team atmosphere among volunteers

  • Overseeing and running children’s ministry for Sunday service as well as any special services and events



  • The ideal candidate will possess a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent in Children’s Ministry, Education or related field, but experience could offset education
  • Experience working in a children’s ministry with over 25 children
  • Experience in development and/or growth of a children's ministry ideal
