Church of Living Grace of New Jersey (CLGNJ) in Parsippany, New Jersey, has an opening for a Family Ministry Director


The main purpose of Family Ministry is to empower families to take spiritual leadership in the home and develop disciples (Deut. 6:4-9; Titus 2; 2 Timothy 2; Psalm 145); helping families to understand the role and meaning of family in the life of Christians and the Church; empowering families in a God-honoring, kingdom-building way; helping families live the teachings of Jesus with one another; equipping and supporting families as they learn to serve others.

Therefore, family ministry is a family-equipping ministry involving the church and the home as partners, to teach children, develop leaders, and equip parents to train up and disciple the next generation.

The Director of Family Ministries (DFM) is a full-time ministry position to serve within the vision and mission of Church of Living Grace (CLG), under the direction of the Senior Pastor, and in coordination with other ministry teams.


Under the supervision of the Senior Pastor, and in partnership with other staff, committees, and members of the congregation, the DFM will:
