Children's minister - now hiring

Walden Community Church is looking for a New Part-Time Children's Director.

So right away, you’ve got to love kids. We need a partner who is willing to love an entire children’s department. (nursery all the way to the fifth graders)

Second you need to lead our program – that means you have a vision, you have organizational skills and you'll help us recruit and train additional volunteers. 

This ministry needs “active excitement.”

Are you outgoing, energetic and contagious? Because we need a “self-starter” who is able to meet a congregation of people, get to know them, learn faces, and memorize names and who can immediately “jump in” and begin to develop a Sunday school program with our volunteer teachers.

Your Responsibilities:

First, You, will be an active and supporting member of Walden Community Church. 

Plus, as you can imagine it’s all the yearly stuff you’d expect; overseeing and developing all ministry events; Vacation Bible School, parent date night, and our yearly Halloween outreach event.

Plus all of the day to day stuff: ordering supplies and curriculum, creating an updated printed calendar, maintaining office hours, having an organized budget, setting up and tearing down before and after campus events, overseeing background checks, maintaining an online presence on social media, and developing a fun “brand” that can be communicated effectively to our families and visitors.

Your tools:

Right now, we have a handful of children who are actively involved, plus a small handful of volunteer Sunday school teachers, you'll also receive a budget and a reasonable salary that can be negotiated based on your experience.

We can also give you, a downstairs nursery and preschool classroom, 2 upstairs classrooms, plus access to an office.


Qualifications:
  • Committed Christian
  • A huge love for children and families
  • Friendly and outgoing
  • Visionary
  • Effective communication skills (written, verbal, online and one on one)
  • Strong organizational and leadership skills
  • Someone who is comfortable teaching children of all ages
  • Adept at problem solving.
