    We seek to be a leader in creating a family-based Children’s ministry in Portsmouth, Virginia.  We believe that parents are God’s original and most effective ministers, and that the church – as an extended family – should support parents in their responsibility to bring children up “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4).  We believe that a truly Biblical model of ministry will strengthen families and equip parents to be more effective in their work.

    If you believe you are a capable candidate, we ask that you prayerfully submit your resume to: Mike Hawkins, mike@westparkonline.org
