Job Description:
Foundation Christian Ministries (FCM) is non-denominational, whose purpose is *Being Christ-like Discipleship Makers* by communicating simple, fun and real messages for everyday life. This is a fast paced, young church with approximately 400 in weekly attendance and growing. Our children's ministry (3D) currently has an average of 125+ every weekend. FCM wants kids eager and happy to go to their classes, a place where they can belong while having fun learning about Jesus. We are located in the Bastrop, Texas area which is one of the fastest growing communities in the TX, allowing for huge growth potential.

Formal education is not a predetermining factor for the selection of the new Children's Pastor, but the successful candidate will most likely have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited university or college or equivalent amount of work experience. Seminary training is a bonus but not necessary. The successful candidate will preferably come from a growing church. They will understand the need to maintain personal relationships with students, staff and volunteers while also having a strategic vision for growing the Children's Ministry. They will display a significant amount of growth potential, and will be balanced in the areas of strategic and relational abilities. They will be able to envision direction and lead the way, but remain strongly relational as well in order to cultivate and build relationships with volunteers and staff.
