Job Description:

For our basic job description we are looking for a young vibrant leader to grab the reigns our our Family Ministry. We believe that what happens in a child's home is so much more important than what happens at church. Instead of hiring a traditional youth pastor we are looking for a Family Minister to over see all children/students from preschool to high school. We are exploring the "Orange" curriculum to accomplish this mission. Our initial agenda was to find someone already familiar with this program because we feel this is the direction God is leading our church and hopefully our community. Even if you are inexperienced with the "Orange" philosophy but feel that parents should play a vital role in their children's spiritual growth, we will gladly consider your resume. Our goal is to maximize and strengthen the bond between the home and church.

We have an extremely wonderful group of parents who are concerned with the spiritual needs of their children. As a Family Minister we are looking for someone to oversee these programs, train recruit volunteers/leaders, and really desire to creatively connect with parents. Many parents lack the tools needed to be a spiritual leader in the life of their child.

Additionally, we have a youth group of about 15 who have been tossed around for the past 2 years. Short story, we did hire a youth pastor last fall but he left at the beginning of the year to be closer to his fiance. We have a wonderful group of men who have stepped up and done their best in leading the youth over the last two years. Our youth really need someone who is more engaging, and culturally in-tune to their world. Within the position of Family Minister we are looking for someone to really commit to this youth group, lead them, and care for them. Again, we have very strong parental involvement, we just need a leader. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call or email. If you are interested, please send your resume.

Thanks You,
