- Hours Per Week:
- Job Description:
We believe that a Kingdom minded family of Spirit-filled Jesus-followers, secure in their Father's love, can carry the presence of God and anointing into everything they do - and bring the life-changing kingdom of God to a city, a nation and the world.
We believe that children are a vital part of this, and that:
·the fullness of the Holy Spirit is available for kids of every age, that they can learn to hear the whispers of God and move in power and anointing
·our kids can develop a rich, inspirational friendship with Jesus
·our kids can experience the love of the Father, and in this find their identity as sons and daughters of God
·if we train up a child in the way they should go, when they are old they will not depart from it.
If you believe these things too, we’d love to talk to you.
- Job Requirements:
We’re looking for a passionate person (or couple) to be a key part of our church family and lead our Kids on Fire ministry. That’s developing and delivering an inspiring and fun curriculum for infants to Year 8 (~12years old). Reporting to the Senior Leaders you’ll:
·Oversee all programming for children throughout the church ensuring the content is consistent with our values and beliefs
·Define a vision for the children’s ministry (in consultation with leadership) that contributes to the church’s overall vision.
·Develop and deliver a ministry plan to achieve that vision
·Recruit and train children’s ministry volunteers.
·Co-create an annual budget (with senior leaders) for the ministry and deliver to that budget
·Establish and maintain a security system that protects children in our church’s care.
Of course, we’ll help you with the above, as we love working in team!
- Highly Desired:
Ideally you’d have experience ministering to children and their parents, as well as experience managing volunteers. You’d relate well with people of different ages and backgrounds. You’d have some (or all!) of these attributes / skills:
·Love kids and want to invest in the next generation
·Previous teaching, kids church or early childhood experience
·A call to pastoral ministry
·Ability to teach a group of kids and keep them motivated
·Creative and enthusiastic about running fun activities
·Well-presented and self-motivated
·A growing Christian faith and character.
·Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
·A servant heart, and love being part of a church family
·Are aligned with the values and beliefs of the church.
·A lifestyle congruent with the biblical requirements for leaders (1 Tim. 3:1-13; 2 Tim 2; Titus 1:5-9).
You’ll have to pass a police background check. If you have teaching experience, previous experience in a Christian ministry, ECE qualification or training towards one and a current First Aid certificate, that’d be a bonus (but are not pre-requisites).
What we will do for you;
·We’re committed to caring for you as a person, and seeing you grow and develop into all God has for you.
·We believe in the unique call of every individual, and will help you to develop that as you grow with us.
·We’ll meet with you regularly and support you to achieve your plan for the ministry
·You’ll be part of the wider ministry leader team and a key part of the life and heart of our church family
