Turning Point is a non-denominational church. Our mission is to reach and influence our community by establishing a growing Christ-centered, Bible-based church, changing mindsets and empowering people in every aspect of life. This is a fast paced, young church with approximately 900 in weekly attendance and growing. Our children's ministry currently has an average of 125+ every weekend. TPC wants kids eager and happy to go their classes, a place where they can belong, while having fun, and learning about Jesus. We are located in Vidor, Texas, which is one hour East of Houston, Tx.
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. 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, but remain strongly relational as well in order to cultivate and build relationship with volunteers and staff.
