Children’s Ministry Director: Part Time (10 hours/week)
Open Table United Methodist Church:: Raleigh, NC
Open Table UMC is a new church located just north of downtown Raleigh in the Oakwood neighborhood. Our dream is to be a diverse, mission focused church that engages the community in creative ways, seeks to live out God’s justice and mercy, and bridges the divides of race, economics, age and sexuality – as we share life together.
The director will be responsible for leading the children’s ministry for ages K3 to 5th grade. This is an incredible opportunity for a leader who loves kids and wants to see children develop into life-long disciples that participate in the life of the church. This could be a great position for someone who needs the part-time flexibility but wants to engage in life-changing ministry and be part of an exciting new congregation.
Responsibilities would include, but not be limited to:
o Developing the children’s ministry plan & strategy
o Recruiting, developing, and training a children’s ministry volunteer team
o Manage curriculum
o Classroom teaching
o Building relationships with families to help support discipleship in the home
o Schedule volunteers
o Oversee check-in and safe sanctuary policies
This is a 10-hour per/week position that would break down to approximately:
o 5 hours on Sundays (on-site at church)
o 5 hours ministry management/administration (from home/mobile office)
Previous children’s ministry experience and/or theological education are preferred but not required.
