The Candidate

The ministry of the Director of Family Ministry will oversee all aspects of children’s ministries including staff, volunteers, Sunday programming, the children’s choir and a variety of other responsibilities throughout the week.  In addition, the Director will plan and promote ministries to middle and high school students (and their families), including regular youth group meetings, fellowship events, retreats, etc.  There will also be administrative duties in all aspects of the ministry connected with the role of the Director of Family Ministries.
