Job Description:
Coastal Community Church began in 1999 with a dream that church can be done in a way that is relevant to people’s lives, and should be a place where people grow. Since its first service at Ocean lakes Elementary in Virginia Beach, VA in 2000, Coastal has experienced steady growth, opening its second location in the Glenwood area of Virginia Beach in 2006. More sites are anticipated in the coming years. Programming at Coastal is simple, with a high degree of focus on weekend services, small groups and service opportunities. While the church offers other ministries during the week, the heart of the church is one that focuses on doing a few things with excellence.

The Family Ministry Pastor will serve as the chief leader, innovator and communicator of children's ministries at Coastal. While all ministries at Coastal function within the framework of the larger church vision, the Family Ministry Pastor will seek to creatively implement that vision in a relevant and effective manner with children from birth through 5th Grade at all Coastal sites.

A formal education is not a predetermining factor for the selection of the new Family Ministry Pastor. However, it is likely that they have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. A degree in education or a related field and/or an advanced degree in biblical studies, seminary training, is preferred, but not required. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of working in a setting committed to reaching the unreached, working in a fast-paced, high growth environment and promoting innovation through collaboration. They will show a high degree of effectiveness in recruitment and retention of new members, staff and volunteers. Work in a high-growth multi-staff setting is strongly preferred. The successful Family Ministry Pastor will have a proven record of being an innovator, entrepreneur, and visionary leader as a Children’s or Family Pastor.

Virginia Beach boasts a high quality of life. It is undoubtedly a great place to live and raise a family. The city of Virginia Beach appeared on a number of national “Top 10” lists in 2012.
