Do you have a proven track record in recruiting and developing volunteers and experience in a church with 200 kids (or more!)?
Gateway Community Church in South Riding, VA is in search of a Children’s Director to lead their KidzTown ministry for infants through fifth-graders. Located just outside Washington, DC, Gateway Community is a medium-sized church committed to drawing others into authentic Christian community by encouraging people to grow UP towards God in worship, IN towards others in community, and OUT towards the world in service.
The Children’s Director will provide vision, direction, oversight, and development for the kids' ministry. In addition to helping to create a plan to support both online and in-person ministries, they will recruit and connect with volunteers to establish a team and build relationships. Gateway is sure the Director will be known and loved by elementary kids as they minister to families and aid in connecting what happens on the weekend with what happens at home. This will also serve to create an awareness of the KidzTown ministry in the greater community.
The right candidate will show innovation and creativity. The Director will be comfortable with technology; a bonus would be familiarity with Planning Center and ProPresenter, as well as previous live stream experience. Gateway is looking for someone with a bachelor's degree and experience supervising staff and volunteers.
