Job Description:
Community Bible Church (CBC) is currently seeking a full-time Children’s Ministry Director who seeks to launch kids into a lifetime of following Jesus Christ through caring, Christ-centered relationships and teaching. We have a strong children’s ministry in place, known as Treasure Mountain, encompassing children from birth through fifth grade, utilizing a staff of approximately 250 volunteers. Therefore, we desire a leader who not only has a heart for reaching children for Christ, but who can continue to build and unite current and future staff while exhibiting strong organizational skills. A proven track record of visionary oversight, and the building and equipping of teams is critical. This person must be a maturing disciple of Jesus Christ who demonstrates godly character, a servant’s heart and is a team player.

• Annual, week-long Junior Camp overnight camp (75+ children third through fifth grade)

Located in Marietta, Pennsylvania, Community Bible Church serves the communities of Lancaster, York, and Dauphin Counties with a regional population of approximately 1,000,000. The area is economically stable, growing, and full of young families. Our desire is to be a place where Loving God, Loving Others, and Reaching Out is the basis for all we do. With a 59 year history, we at CBC desire to shape our ministry for future generations while honoring a rich heritage. The church reflects a casual atmosphere to welcome everyone.

We would prefer, but do not require the following:
