Title: Children's Ministry Creative Director

Overview of Position

 

Robots! Costumes! Dancing! Leading Teams! Creating Stuff! Kids! – these are all words that help share a small glimpse of what the Creative Director for the Children’s Ministry looks like. There’s obviously a lot more “job” sounding words and  details that we’ll include below.

 

But, for this introduction area, we’re looking for the right person God has out there to passionately teach / lead Ridge Kids from a creative angle. Someone who is growing in their faith, teachable, creative (duh), and isn’t afraid of technology, design, or working with a team, and kids, and basically a staff team that acts like kids.

 

If that’s you, then go ahead and proceed through the boring / essential stuff to further understand what this role entails. Note that we are looking for a highly creative, high-capacity person, with a faith built on Him.
