CHILDREN PASTOR POSTION


CHILDREN'S PASTOR POSITION IS OPEN
  • I could not resist: I love children, and have worked with adults, and teens and young adults, and Charity and I have had several positions as Children's Pastor (preschool to sixth) I worked in Christian Schools. We have worked in the Bus Ministry working with kids is great. My last two position in the ministry was in Christian Education and Children's Ministry, and I can tell you I would have loved to have worked under this job description. Pastors and Elders take notes.
  • Who would not want to work with these kids in the photo. Reid, Cole and Ella Williams. Dad and Mom are just outstanding parents and love the Lord, and love their church. I hope they have a Children's Pastor in their church (the church below is not the church they go to.)
The job description below is not from their church, nor am I applying, boy it sound like one I wish I could.

AND TO THINK SOME CHURCHES TAKE LITTLE EFFORT IN HAVING A GOOD CHILDREN'S MINISTRY. TAKE NOTE PASTORS AND ELDERS AND DEACONS.

A GOOD JOB DESCIPTION:

TX—Dallas // Children’s Pastor: We’re a creative, contemporary, Bible-centered, elder-led, medium-sized church (200 adults) looking for someone to join a great team as our Children’s Pastor. Casual, collegial and fun working environment. We’re willing to try new things--unencumbered by a lot of sacred cows. We’re basically purpose-driven; more interested in equipping followers than attracting the masses; a more intimate ‘family’ alternative to the many megachurches in town, but the quality of our Sunday morning rivals almost any big church. The Children’s Pastor is responsible for all ministries related to children from birth to sixth grade.



This is the only paid position in children’s ministries. We’re looking for someone to shepherd our children, minister to our families and reach out to the children in our neighborhood. This includes the responsibility to recruit, train, direct, and evaluate a corps of volunteers in children’s ministries. Current ministries to children include graded Sunday School, graded Children’s Church, midweek discipleship program, VBS, Kid’s Camp and several special events during the year. However, we’d like to transition to a more contemporary ministry and we’re open to some new ideas. Also includes some general pastoral duties. I want someone who thinks children’s ministry is the most important ministry in the church; committed to worship and serve Jesus wholeheartedly; teachable, flexible and adaptable; team player who works well with others; willing to speak their mind, but then able to ‘follow the leader’; capable leader with a pastor’s heart--particularly for kids; conscientious and self directed.


Salary: $40,000 plus health and dental.
