Location: Ridgefield, WA (Portland)
With high-quality schools and a friendly feel, Ridgefield is one of the fastest growing cities in Washington. With hundreds of families moving in every year, we are looking to strategically connect with unsaved and unchurched parents and their children through our Children’s ministry.
The Children’s Pastor will help us transition the Children’s ministry from one department among many within the church, to operating as the primary vehicle through which we connect with people and grow the church. In order to do this, the Children’s pastor will have to move the ministry away from a direct-care programming model to a family discipleship model.
Team-Building: Multiple programs and ministry environments require strong team building skills. The Children’s Pastor will be able to interact well with adults, able to recruit and build teams of volunteers to serve together. He/she will see his primary role as raising up volunteers who will do almost all of the hands-on ministry to children. He/she will recognize talents and gifts of potential team members and will place them in ministry positions where they are best able to serve. He/she will look for leadership potential among volunteers and will develop them into leaders within the department.
