In the 1950s, a group of families established Catalina Church. As the church aged and leadership exchanged hands, it eventually became more driven by a social gospel and was dying, literally and figuratively. In 2004, current pastor, Ted Soderholm, was hired. His focus became restoring Jesus as the center of the Gospel, and establishing a relational/evangelical model of church culture that would encourage growth. Catalina Church is all about making life simple. Connect groups meet just after the Sunday message to discuss life and the application of the day’s sermon. Catalina cares less about building an army of people to fill seats and more about the people in the seats. They aim to have an intimate, personal approach to ministry that strives to be authentic and real. Catalina has a huge heart for families and is constantly tearing down barriers and stereotypes by being one of the most generous giving churches in the area.


Catalina Church is looking for a loving Children’s Pastor who will be responsible for the development and administration of the ministry for children, birth – 5th grade. The successful candidate will equip volunteers and parents to reach and disciple children to be vibrant followers of Christ who learn to walk with God, serve the church, and understand their personal mission in life. The successful candidate will lead the Children’s Ministry, but more importantly, will live life with the people and children of Catalina Church. Lunches with volunteers and church attendees, coordinating “play dates” between stay at home moms, and interaction with local elementary schools are just some of the examples of “life on life” expected at Catalina Church. Being in the community and involved with people is far more important than the weekly task list, which is why Catalina church has no offices.


Formal education is not a predetermining factor in the selection of the new Children’s Pastor. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of working in a setting committed to reaching the unreached, working within a community, and promoting innovation through collaboration. They will show a high degree of effectiveness in working and communicating in a low oversight environment.
