Job Type: Full-Time
FBC Midlothian is a healthy, growing, contemporary church just south of Dallas, Texas, with an average of 1500 in attendance each Sunday. We are looking for an energetic and experienced person to be our full-time Preschool Minister serving children birth through Kindergarten and their families. FBC Midlothian has a well established, high-impact Preschool Ministry averaging approximately 225 on Sundays and over 110 at our midweek program. We have around 125 volunteers serving in our Preschool Ministry. We utilize the Orange Curriculum (First Look) with our preschoolers, and follow the Orange Strategy for reaching the next generation for Christ, which places a high value on parent-church partnerships. Additionally, we have a high-quality weekday education program (2 days a week) that falls under the supervision of our Preschool Minister.
Check out our website (www.fbcmidlothian.org) to see that we are not a typical "First Baptist Church" congregation. We love our theological roots, but we embrace change and healthy processes, relationships, and boundaries as we try to reach and transform our community.
We are looking for someone who is educated in the area of child development, early childhood education, and/or children’s ministry (Bachelor’s degree required, Masters preferred). The candidate must have at least 3 years of full-time employment as a minister to young children at a church (preference given to those who have experience with implementing the Orange Strategy). They must be a visionary and strong leader, be a self-starter, have excellent people skills, and exhibit a team-oriented mindset. Additionally, the candidate must have the capacity and demonstrated experience with managing large programs, with preference given to those who have done so in an early childhood education setting. Most importantly, the candidate must be a follower of Jesus Christ and be passionate about giving young children a healthy first impression of their Heavenly Father!
Job duties would include:
• Providing intentional partnerships with families in the spiritual education of their children;
• Implementing exciting, Biblically-sound, and relevant programs and curricula for preschoolers;
• Recruiting and equipping effective preschool volunteers;
• Supervising the Weekday Education Director, Childcare Coordinator, and Preschool Ministry Assistant;
• Overseeing the quality of education of our Weekday Education Program;
• Participating in outreach and hospital visitations;
• Participation in weekly staff meetings and periodic staff planning retreats;
• Administration and oversight of everything related to the Preschool Ministry.
If you possess these skills and experience and have a passion for partnering with families in the spiritual development of their young children, we want to hear from you. Please submit your resume (by email) with three references and a photo to:
