Children's Ministry Director/Leader

Posted by: Travis Barnett

Posted date: Nov-21-2016

Location: Monroeville, IN

 Director of Children’s Ministries



Job Description: The Monroeville Church of the Nazarene exists to glorify God by reaching up in Worship and Prayer, reaching inward in Discipleship and Fellowship, and reaching out in Witness and Service.  We are endeavoring to become a community-oriented church, so we are excited to get a children’s ministry started. Our church is nestled in a small community located just outside of both Fort Wayne and Decatur, Indiana in a community where there is presently no established children’s ministry. As such, we are seeking a Director of Children’s Ministries that isn’t afraid to dream and work to help us reach the kids in our church and community through the grace and love of Christ.  Since it is initially a very part-time position, it is likely ideal for a college student or recent graduate in the area looking for experience and opportunity, but we are open to whomever God might lead our way.


Key Responsibilities:

  • Provide Christ centered, child focused teachings and experiences for children with Sunday mornings (and possibly one night throughout the week) as the primary anchor point
  • Develop relationships with children & families by communicating, engaging and encouraging the children in their life with and outside of the church while also providing resource for parents.
  • Initiate and direct several special discipleship, fellowship and outreach events for children throughout the year
  • Equip and empower volunteers.
  • Maintain administrative records, reports and contacts in a timely and organized manner as well as oversee the ministry budget.
  • Use technology and social media platforms to keep communication relevant and available.
  • Report to Senior Pastor and collaborate with the Youth Leader in the transition from 5th grade to our 6 th through 12th grade youth program.


  • A Christ centered and Biblically grounded calling to work with families and children.
  • A commitment to personal spiritual development.
  • Previous experience (can be volunteer) working with children in a ministry context
  •  Energy and enthusiasm in abundance.
  • A commitment to growing and discovering how to be more a effective children’s minister
