Gateway Christian Church is seeking a full-time Children’s Minister to join our team. GCC is a Restoration Movement church located about 35 mi north of Nashville, TN with a regular attendance of about 120. We have recently undergone a building project expanding our facility to include an education wing that is intended to reach out to the families within our ever-growing community. The project is expected to be completed in April 2022.
The Children’s Minister will work with a ministry team consisting of a senior minister, a youth minister, and a part-time worship minister. This person will oversee all programming for children (birth-5th grade). The primary duty will be to organize, prepare, and execute engaging, biblically sound, children’s programming. Other key responsibilities will include equipping parents to disciple their children, connecting every child in the church with a caring, Christian adult, and maximizing the new space to create an environment of discipleship, fun, and joy on Sunday mornings, reaching children at every age level within the church body.
Additional weekday programming will be completed as required to meet the organizational and spiritual growth goals of the staff and elders. Special activities such as VBS, Superstart, etc., are also important parts of this ministry.
Clarksville is a young, rapidly growing community of over 150K people, with over 200K people in Montgomery County. As the community grows around us, we are poised to grow with the community, reaching families for Christ, making disciples, and lifelong Kingdom workers.
Ideal candidates will have a 4-yr degree from a Restoration Movement college/university in Children’s Ministry or a related field. Candidates lacking the requisite education will be expected to have at least 3 years of successful Children’s Ministry experience. Candidates must be able to grow and nurture teams to accomplish education and spiritual growth goals. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, resume, and 3-5 references to the senior minister, Robbie Kubr at firstname.lastname@example.org.
