POSITION SUMMARY

Christ the King is an evangelical Anglican church. Children’s ministry is a high priority for our church. This position will provide pastoral care for the children of our church as well as leadership of our ministry to children. Every Sunday we minister to approximately 60 children from 6 months of age through 5th grade. We have three significant Sunday morning programs: Nursery care: 0-3, Children’s Church during worship age 4-2nd grade and Sunday School for children from nursery through 5th grade following service. Currently, we have three Sunday School classes, not including our nursery care. Responsibility for various programs does not imply leading or doing every program. We are blessed with an excellent volunteer base, as well as faithful employees who serve in our nursery. This position requires a Sunday morning commitment.

• With rector and key volunteer leaders, determine curriculum for our Sunday morning programs.

TIME COMMITMENT

Time commitment for this position will vary according to the program year. Preparation for the program year, volunteer staff training and VBS will require significantly more time than the leadership of the ministry during the program year. The yearly time commitment shall not exceed 1,000 hours.

This position will require weekly presence at our church office as well as a Sunday morning commitment.
