WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
Wentzville Christian Church, located in Wentzville, MO, is looking for a highly relational, biblically grounded individual to lead our Early Childhood ministry (Birth-Pre-K). You would find yourself to be a great fit on our team if you would call yourself a humble learner, an eager collaborator, a creative problem solver, and a willing disciple and disciple-maker. Our team is authentic with each other and our congregation and we do not take ourselves too seriously. What we do take seriously is our goal to see a passion ignited in those we lead as they grow in their relationship with Jesus.
YOUR NEW CHURCH FAMILY
As you arrive at WCC for the first time, you will meet many friendly faces looking to greet you. There will be conversations happening all over our lobby with a wide range of ages represented, from young families to practicing grandparents. It will be a casually dressed group that is sharing in laughter and prayer. It is also a group of people that tend to be very busy between work, family life, and hobbies, but also very generous with their finances, skills, and time. It is a group that enjoys each other and enjoys when others join the group as well!
As a staff member at WCC, there is an expectation that you are growing in your relationship with Jesus while also working hard as you serve in your ministry. Our staff is active in the main worship service, involved in Life Groups and serving opportunities, and accountable to each other for both our competence and character. Our lifestyle is expected to match our teaching and job expectations.
A major component of your position will be volunteer management. You will be expected to recruit, train, and sustain volunteers for both Sunday morning programming and other events as needed. These people will be your team and you will want to develop them and invest in them as they are investing in the kids. Having a well-supported, prepared, and connected team will greatly enhance your ministry and help make a Kingdom impact.
We also want our Early Childhood Minister to work closely with our NextGen team to develop weekly programming and events that will intentionally shepherd and disciple both the kids and parents in this ministry. Your programming has a direct impact on our mission of igniting a passion for Jesus, the Bible, the Church, and Others. We also believe it is vital to communicate well to the families and volunteers in this ministry as well as evaluate what is being done to continually be looking at what is new, improved, or improving in your ministry area.
Our last major component of this role is partnership. First, you will need to partner with the parents and families in your ministry to be a great resource and support to families as they raise their children. We want our families to look at you as someone who will support, encourage, and equip them to help them raise children who love Jesus. We also want you to partner heavily with our Preschool Director to make a connection with the families of our Preschool. These families are primed to get more involved at WCC and we want your relationship with them to help make that happen. We want them to see a familiar face when they come on a Sunday rather than just during the week. Finally, we want you to have a good partnership with the rest of the staff as we look to lead WCC together. You will share in pastoral care, budgeting, and other ministry responsibilities that work better as a team. You will be a key cog in the efforts of Kingdom work done here and we are not looking for you to be a lone ranger.
For more information, please take a look at the Job Description here to see more details and visit wentzvillecc.org to get a better feel for who we are. We want you to be successful from day one and want you to know what the expectations are to have that success.
To apply, please submit your resume and references to our Connections Minister, Randy Diebel, at email@example.com.
