    We are looking to reach young families and believe that someone who has a young family would best be able to reach their peers.

    We are searching for a Family Life Minister to work with young families, including the parents, children, and youth.

    A successful candidate will relate well with all age groups, not just those they will be working with.

    The Family Life Minister will focus primarily on families with younger children (elementary age), but will also work with older youth (Jr./Sr. High).

    This will include:

    Peer mentoring and training with parents (small groups, and outings)

    Oversee children’s ministry (recruiting and training volunteers, developing curriculum, coordinating with preschool to reach out to preschool families)

    Work with our youth program, and plan outings for our youth (mission trips, Bible College tours, CIY events, camp, concerts, retreats, etc.)



    Salary $25-30K depending on experience

    PLUS parsonage (or possibly housing allowance)

    PLUS health insurance

    PLUS life insurance
