The Children’s Director should first and foremost be passionate about Christ. The person should be able to convey that passion by serving to lead the children of the church. He/She must be able to work with others to encourage families to engage in in the community of believers.
The Children’s Director will be required to maintain 10-12 hours per week in order to complete the responsibilities of the position. In addition to the job responsibilities, he/she should be a healthy member of the church and should participate in church activities additional to work hours. The Children’s Director will serve under the leadership of the Lead Pastor where open communication and trust are essential.
Life Church believes in “doing life together” and that includes our leadership. The Children’s Director should work with other leaders in a team approach to ministry. He/She should be willing to take part in any ministry area, as need may arise, in order that the church could more effectively carry out its mission.
