Job Description:
First Assembly of God is a Spirit-filled Church located in Wheaton, Illinois. We are a multi-cultural, multi-staff Church in the western suburbs of Chicago. Our vision is to “reach the diverse population of the western suburbs of Chicago and bring them into dynamic living in Jesus Christ.”

We are currently looking for a Children’s Pastor. The ideal candidate must be passionate and enthusiastic about working with children and families. They should have proven creativity, organizational skills, administrative abilities and long-term planning experience.

This role involves leading all aspects of the Children's Ministry including Wednesday night activities, Sunday morning activities, and special events/outreaches such as “Wacky Wednesdays,” Easter, and Fall Emphasis.

The ideal candidate will have a love for small groups, ministry to international children, and hurting kids. He or she must have an attitude that will enable them to do whatever it takes to build a successful children’s ministry.

The Children’s Pastor must have a passion to see children have a dynamic relationship with Jesus, in which they are able to grow and participate in the Kingdom of God.

Our current Children’s Pastor has taken on the role of the chaplain for a local county jail, but will be continuing on staff as the “Connections” Small Group Director. She will be available to be a resource for the new Children’s Pastor during the transition period. There is already a strong foundation on which to build the Children's Ministry.

All interested candidates must send a resume with references. A video of some ministry (preaching, teaching, etc.) activity would be helpful as well. As we are a multi-cultural church, all ethnicities are encouraged to apply for this position. At least one multi-staff experience is desirable, but candidates with other children’s ministry experience will be considered.
