The West Orange Church of Christ is seeking a passionate, dynamic and spiritually focused person to oversee our ministry to children.
West Orange is a growing congregation of 400+ members located in Winter Garden, Florida, a small community in the heart of Central Florida offering young families a revitalized downtown area, new housing and retail developments and plenty of leisure activities due to the proximity of Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and a myriad of sporting and entertainment venues.
The congregation has been blessed over the last five years with a building expansion including a complete children’s education wing with classrooms designed with kids in mind and an indoor playground.
The Children’s Minister is responsible for implementing and maintaining a comprehensive education and worship program for children from birth through the fifth grade, recruiting and equipping volunteers for service and providing opportunities for families to reach out to others in the surrounding community.
The Children’s Minister works independently under the general supervision of the church shepherds. He/She is expected to exercise good judgment with respect to planning and programming and to ensure that such programming falls within the vision and direction set by Church Leadership. He/She is expected to work with the other ministers and church staff in a manner that reflects a team spirit.
The ideal candidate will be passionate about influencing children and families in their walk with God. He/She will be a spiritually mature Christian who is committed to Restoration Movement teaching and principles. A Bachelor’s Degree in Children’s Ministry, Christian Education or Elementary Education is desirable, however, each candidate will be evaluated on his/her ministry experience, vision for the ministry and christian character.
