    Job Description

    Valley Vineyard Christian Fellowship is looking to add a part-time Children’s Pastor to its current team. This position will help our church community continue impacting the next generations and reaching out to children and families in need in the surrounding neighborhoods.

    The Valley Vineyard is a multiethnic church and is one of the original Vineyards established in the late 70s. We have recently gone through a pastoral transition and are positioning ourselves to become an intergenerational church family striving to grow by becoming outwardly focused and embracing our commission of being disciples making disciples.

    The Children’s Pastor will focus on helping children and families come to Christ and grow in loving God, loving others, and discipling people. They will also help the Valley Vineyard Church spread the Good News of the Gospel through periodic family-oriented outreaches and events.


    1. Children’s Church
    Establish an outwardly focused children’s church ministry where our kids are engaging and reaching their unchurched friends with the Gospel.
    Shepherd the children (nursery through 5th grade) to grow spiritually by teaching the concepts of abiding in Christ, belonging to Christ’s community, and joining the mission of Christ by allowing him to change our lives to change the world.
    Develop a weekly relational children’s church environment for life change, encompassing a solid foundation of worship, prayer, the Word of God, small-group age-affiliated connections, and relevant activities that speak to the heart of children.
    Identify, train, and multiply leaders and volunteers to help carry the vision of equipping the next generations. Provide periodic meetings to encourage and disciple teachers, volunteers, and parents.
    Schedule and organize an annual Camp for the 4th and 5th graders and periodic child-friendly and family-oriented gatherings.
    Assist the children in relating to the Vineyard Community at-large as we want to grow in becoming an intergenerational church (e.g., church events, camps, outreaches, etc.)
    Coordinate childcare/babysitting workers for All-Church events.
    Keep parents informed and involved regarding our vision and purpose, training them to take on their God-given responsibility of being the primary spiritual examples and mentors to their children.

    2. Family Outreach
    Facilitate yearly summer VBS Summer Fun Camp to minister to the children of our church community and to those in our neighborhood.
    Cast vision and mobilize children and their families to take-on a missional approach in life.
    Connect and network with the nearby Elementary Schools (e.g., service projects, Bible clubs, etc.)
    Lead periodic outreaches (e.g., Harvest Fair, Summer Family Fun Nights, drive-in movies, etc.)

    QUALIFICATIONS (character and skills needed)
    1. Called to serve and shepherd young lives.
    2. Capacity to connect with culture and lead others to Christ.
    3. Cultivate discipleship and multiplication – making disciples who make disciples, raising leaders who raise leaders.
    4. Lead and train children in experiencing worship, prayer, ministry, and the gifts of the Spirit.
    5. Able to plan, implement strategy, and multitask.
    6. Aptitude to mobilize, equip, and train others.
