Children's Director

Preschool and Children Director

(part-time position)


This is a part-time, non-ministerial position. The Pre-school/Children Director shall be responsible for the oversight of all preschool programs, birth through kindergarten and responsible for all children’s programs, first through six grade with the exception of Sunday School.


The Preschool/Children’s Director coordinates with the Sunday School Director for all matters concerning the Sunday School and reports to the Pastor for all other preschool/children’s ministries of the church. Example: extended session, Sunday evening worship services, Wednesday night prayer meeting, special events, Wednesday night TeamKids. The Director shall receive an annual review for the Pastor.


The Preschool/Children’s Director will be responsible for recruiting organizing and coordinating volunteer teachers and helpers in our nursery, preschool, children’s areas (excluding Sunday School), worship services, extended session, choir practice, mid-week prayer service including TeamKids and special events including parents night out. The Director is expected to be available to the teachers during these ties, and therefore is not required to assume direct teaching responsibilities unless in an emergency. This position is a vital ministry and not simply a job. Although direct responsibilities are focused on other adults, the Director must have a heart for children and firmly believe Proverbs 29:6, "Train up a child in the way he should to and when he is old he will not depart from it."
