Location: Roanoke, Virginia
Job Summary - Part-Time or Full-Time
The Children’s Pastor at Roanoke First Church of the Nazarene should be a passionate individual who understands that ministry to children is not just program-oriented, but relationship-based. This individual should be a competent communicator of God’s Word with a heart for outreach and evangelism to both children and their families. Our context is unique in that we are an urban church in a low-income neighborhood; as such, God led our church to establish a daycare that ministers to the families in our community. The daycare has grown and now our church is prayerfully searching for an individual who will minister to the families/children that attend our church and those who attend our daycare. This harvest is RIPE! We are so excited to see what God will do!
About Our Church
Roanoke First Church of the Nazarene is located in the beautiful, mountainous city of Roanoke, Virginia. This is a growing city with a vibrant downtown and diverse population. Established in 1928 and located in the 'Southeast' area of Roanoke, our church has been ministering to the low-income population of this neighborhood for nearly 100 years. While many urban churches moved to the suburbs at some point in their history, Roanoke First has felt the call to remain in the heart of our neighborhood and serve this population. We run a highly-successful daycare with most of our enrollment coming from our own neighborhood. This is a true ministry blessing, as our building is filled with children every day! Our church has such a sweet spirit and a no-judgement atmosphere that allows for anyone to feel welcomed. This is a historic church, one of the earliest Nazarene churches in our area, and yet it does not feel 'stuck in its ways.' I have served as the Lead Pastor for four years and can wholeheartedly say that our church is looking forward to what God is going to do next. Apply and come join in on a good thing that God is doing here at Roanoke First!
