Job Description:

The National Presbyterian Church, a congregation of more than 1500 with a history of excellence in preaching, teaching and vibrant worship located in northwest Washington, DC, seeks a committed follower of Jesus Christ to provide experienced, energetic, and creative full-time leadership for our ministry to children and their families. This person will implement the vision for Children’s ministry by managing and coordinating all programs for children. The primary outcome of this position is to lead our children (birth through 5th grade) to become faithful followers of Jesus Christ, and to equip their parents in their primary role of nurturing the faith of their children.

The successful candidate will model a growing personal relationship with Jesus Christ, with a warm, outgoing manner, strong interpersonal skills and an ability to relate to both parents and children in appropriate ways. We seek a director who is very well organized, and able to plan large and small events from inception to conclusion. A bachelor’s degree is required (preferably with some work in Bible, theology and ministry); we would prefer someone with an M.Div. or M.A. in Christian Education from an accredited seminary or divinity school and previous children’s ministry experience in a multi-staff church setting.

The greater metropolitan Washington area, with its iconic monuments, world-famous museums, outstanding universities and schools (both public and private) and multi-faceted cultural experiences, offers an unusually exciting place to live. This is an extraordinarily challenging, as well as richly rewarding, context for ministry.
