Job Description:



MinisterSearch is delighted to offer a great opportunity for Children's Pastor candidates at a super, growing church in the Dallas-Ft Worth metroplex This church, of about 1200 in weekly attendance, has a great children's ministry and wants someone who is onboard with "Orange."

This job is an ideal opportunity for someone who is looking to work in a performance-based environment. This is not a culture of entitlement, but one that rewards high achievers. It is a perfect time for someone who wants to come in and develop something great! It’s virtually a blank canvas. What a wonderful opportunity for you if you are a Children’s Pastor who has a real heart for kids and their families.

Located in the great suburbs of the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, this church has the best of both--a rich history and a contemporary worship. They are all about “Orange” and very excited to get the right person to come onboard and implement it in a big way!

The lovely area where the church is has a younger demographic as their largest population pool--it will soon represent 81% of the region. Think of the opportunities--so many young families with children!! Additionally, the church is in a very good economic area and there is a high education level of the residents. The families desire an emotionally uplifting, intellectually challenging, contemporary and informal worship style.

This area, while being a suburb of the large Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, still retains a conservative, small community, family feel. It has excellent schools, area attractions, shopping--and it has been rated as one of the country’s top ten small cities in which to live! A great opportunity for the right person to minister, serve, and raise a family!
