Job Description:
The Children’s Ministry Director is responsible for oversight, administration and shepherding of Christ Church’s nursery, Kids Quest and weekday childcare ministries (newborn – Grade 5). The director is responsible to recruit and oversee a team of volunteers and hired childcare staff who support parents in raising their children to walk in God’s purposes and grow in the character of Christ. A passion for God, a heart for children and an active participation in Christ Church must be present and apparent.

The Children's Ministry Director is a part-time position; however, consideration for full-time employment will be given to exceptional candidates.

For children 0-5 years old, Christ Church offers a fully-staffed nursery at both 9am and 11am. Our Kids Quest Sunday program offers Biblical instruction, fellowship, and worship for school-age children. Children are dismissed during the first part of the service and follow the cross to Kids Quest. After the Passing the Peace, which happens in the middle of the service,the children return to the worship service so they can participate in Communion with their families.

Worship at Christ Church is guided by historical, biblically-based liturgy. The service is divided into two main sections: the Ministry of the Word, where we read from the Bible, listen to a sermon, and pray as a congregation, and the Ministry of the Table, where we receive Communion--bread and wine blessed in prayer--as our weekly celebration of Jesus' death and resurrection.
