Location: Figtree, NSW
Date advertised: 1st December 2022
Job Type: Full time
Closing Date: When position is filled
Figtree Anglican Church is located in the stunning Illawarra on the NSW South Ccoast, about an hours’ drive south of Sydney. We are reformed, biblical, evangelical, and celebrate all the excellence God has to offer.
About the Role
We are asking God for a Children’s Minister to take our children’s ministry to the next level. The purpose of the role is to give prayerful, faithful, and playful pastoral oversight to children’s ministry, strategy, programs, team leaders, leaders in training, SRE teachers, and helpers.
This is a full-time role reporting to the Next Generation Minister, with responsibility for oversight of ministry to children aged from preschool to Year 5, SRE co-ordination across six primary schools with teaching, and developing gospel partnerships. In addition to Sunday programs, we imagine opportunities for fellowship and outreach during the week.
A key focus for the role will be to lead up and bring an expertise in children’s ministry that will coach and inform the ministry team and parish, to drive development of our capacities and facilities for children’s ministry and its integration with other ministry areas.
You have demonstrated experience in a similar role running and growing thriving children’s ministry programs with heart and strategy.
You are a capable team builder who has experience recruiting and training teams of volunteers.
You love Jesus and want to see this generation of children in our church, community and beyond, meet Him, know His love, and love others like He does. This love is rich, rugged, wholehearted, persevering, and sacrificial. It is love that sometimes hurts us to keep others from eternal harm.
You will have theological education with a minimum diploma level. A view to further education is favourable.
To apply, please send your CV/resume, strategy to discover, disciple and deploy leaders for children’s ministry, and testimony to firstname.lastname@example.org. We shall send you more information once we have received your application.
We hope you are available to start with us early 2023.
