Duties and Responsibilities
The Director of Children’s Ministry corresponds with the values of Macedonia UMC:
Feeling Like Home: Church is not a “separate program” but nurtures the same values and faith of home. This position exists to strengthen the faith development of children and their families.
Walking with Jesus: Creates spaces and opportunities for children to grow in their faith and understanding of the church’s worship and practice. This occurs through Christian Formation in Godly Play, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, and special events.
Spirit-Driven Commitment: Volunteer Coordination and Parent Communication are vital to this role. As such, training volunteers is paramount to this position. In addition, coordination and relationship with the Macedonia UMC Preschool is a key function.
