We're Hiring a Kids Director

We're looking to bring a new Kids Director onto our team. Below you'll find the Job Description and a way to express your interest.

Role: The role of this part-time staff position (20-25 Hours/Week, negotiable) is that of Kids Ministry Director, providing direct leadership to both the Preschool and Elementary Kids of Redeemer Community Church, helping them to joyfully follow Jesus and help others do the same; also, partnering with parents to equip and encourage them as the primary spiritual influences in their kids’ lives. This part-time Director will be expected to recruit both a Preschool Coordinator and an Elementary Coordinator (which may be volunteer or paid part-time positions) to help execute the plans of the Director.

Reports to: Lead Pastor

We're looking for a person who...

  • Senses God's calling to develop and lead a life-giving ministry to Redeemer’s preschool and elementary children, as well as to their parents
  • Demonstrates character consistent with the ideals the New Testament lays out in texts like Galatians 5:22-23 and Colossians 3:12-14 (We're not looking for perfection, but direction!)
  • Has proven competent in leading or serving in an effective Kids Ministry (We hope for a person who can cast vision, recruit and develop volunteers, rally the troops, etc.)
  • Resonates with the vision-culture of Redeemer Community Church. (We want a person who’s in harmony with our mission, values, strategy, and measures.)
  • Shows potential for relational chemistry with our existing leadership (We obviously hope for a good team player who's easy to get along with!)

We want to always seek to answer the question, "What's the very best way, at this time, in this context, to disciple our kids to joyfully follow Jesus and help others do the same?" Therefore, a major responsibility will be developing and implementing a contextualized plan to grow our kids in accordance with the vision of Redeemer. Still, at this time, it seems the position will include at least the following:

  • Build a Kids Ministry Team made up of a paid Preschool Coordinator, paid Elementary Coordinator, and at least three volunteers to help develop and implement the overall Kids Ministry plan. See below for more details.
  • Recruit, train, and consistently develop a volunteer base to teach our Kids Ministry classes.
  • Attend staff meetings and help integrate children’s ministry into the overall vision of Redeemer Community.
  • Choose curriculum for each hour of Sunday services (9:15 a.m. Sunday School Hour and 10:30 a.m. Worship Hour) appropriate to each age level.
  • Oversee the paid childcare staff – hiring and supervising.
  • Plan and execute special events like Easter and Christmas activities, Date Nights, Parent Summits, etc.
  • Facilitate preschool and elementary play dates and get-togethers.
  • Serve as Redeemer’s lead liaison for Pine Cove Camp in the City.
  • Serve as the VBS Director.
  • Oversee Wednesday night children’s programming when appropriate.
  • Follow up with families that visit and church members who have not been attending regularly.
  • Maintain a balanced budget for Kids Ministry and purchase supplies as needed.
  • Provide parents with solid resources to equip them in raising godly children.
