Job Description:


 Are you ready to become an integral member of our staff team as we continue to seek to reach and disciple people for Christ?  Do you have a proven track record of growing a children’s ministry?  Grace Fellowship U.M.C. is actively seeking qualified candidates for the role of Children’s Pastor (or Director). Grace Fellowship is a 19 year old growing congregation, and is currently averaging 2,800 in Sunday morning attendance.  A small group church, Grace Fellowship desires to yoke with an experienced and energetic ministry leader who can help us take the discipleship of the children entrusted to us to the “next level”.


You will be the champion for the discipleship of children (infant - 5th grade) at Grace Fellowship.  Working closely with the Discipleship Pastor, you will establish, implement and carry out a discipleship plan that encourages all children at Grace Fellowship to become fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ.  We want both an “architect” and a “builder”; someone who can both dream and implement, and who will help us fulfill our role in making the next generation of Christ-followers.


We are looking for someone with a healthy walk with God.  As the champion for the discipleship of children, the ideal candidate has strong leadership skills, is a team player, has both the desire and ability to pour into others, and has several years of direct experience leading or co-leading a large children’s ministry, a true passion for the discipleship of children, strong people skills (we have a very large volunteer team), highly organized, and energized by the church’s vision and mission.  Grace Fellowship also has a heart for special needs families (with a vibrant special needs ministry), and so experience in this area will be a plus.


Please, only apply if you have significant experience in leading a large children’s ministry.  You don’t have to be ordained: you do need to have significant experience, a love for children and their parents, a healthy spiritual walk, a “get it done” attitude, and a desire to be part of something bigger than ourselves.


Well-located within the heart of the Cinco Ranch community in Katy, Texas, Grace Fellowship attracts a broad spectrum of seekers, new believers, and mature Christians.


We are a Bible-believing, contemporary worship congregation.  Our vision is to be a house of prayer for all nations, and our mission is to equip you to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and your neighbor as yourself.


We are offering a very competitive salary and benefits package, including paid medical (for the employee), paid vacation, long-term and short-term disability coverage, and a 401(k) plan.


Qualified candidates are encouraged to email their resume to HR Director Mercy Parish at
