ECOB is an active, mid-size congregation seeking to continue a strong children's ministry (birth-5th grade) to Eaton and surrounding communities.  We are looking for someone that values relationships above programming and desires to walk along with kids and parents as they learn about the person of Jesus Christ and how to live for Him.  We see a need to help kids through our church strategy of experiencing the reality of God through Jesus, connecting with others in a community of faith, growing in the knowledge of God and His word and impacting the world by demonstrating the love of Christ.
