The Children’s and Family Pastor will report to the Senior Pastor and participate in the pastoral staff team. This full-time role oversees two related teams in the church: 1) the Children’s Ministry Team which currently focuses on a large number of adult and youth volunteers but will eventually include staff members, and 2) the Family Ministry Team which includes the Student Pastor and other adult leaders who help synchronize the church around a master plan to build faith and character in its children.
We are seeking a warm, relational individual who demonstrates proven competency with organization, administration, and leadership development to support continued growth. The Children’s and Family Pastor needs to be a leader of leaders and a “recruiter-equipper” of “disciple-makers” – following Jesus’ model by raising up student and adult volunteers who will disciple children through groups and mentoring relationships. This individual should love and be loved by children, but his / her primary focus is working with adults - casting vision, connecting, equipping, and multiplying leaders.
The role presumes a solid biblical foundation and at least 3-5 years of children’s ministry staff experience in a larger church context. Educationally, we prefer a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in ministry, biblical studies, or a related discipline.
