Children’s Ministry Coordinator Job Opening

March 27 - April 11

Neighborhood Church of Dorchester is looking to hire a part time (~6 – 8 hrs / week) Children’s Ministry Coordinator.

About Neighborhood Church of Dorchester: see links below

Children’s Ministry Vision: We envision children in our community being transformed by God’s Shalom: exhibiting self-confidence, hope, joy, and right relationships because they have internalized God’s love for them and the church’s love for them.

Children’s Ministry Mission: We strive to teach our children who Jesus is, how to follow him, and what it means to experience the fullness of God’s Shalom.

Children’s Ministry Summary: Each Sunday Service during the message, all children ages 2-12 are invited to participate in a fun, interactive class in which they can engage with God’s story in an age-appropriate way. Each week’s lesson generally includes:

  • Intro activity
  • Story/Scripture 
  • Discussion and snack
  • Application activity
  • Prayer

Note that we intend that the Kids Church program on Sunday will eventually split between ages 2 – 5 and 6 – 12 (roughly), and the Coordinator will be a leader for the older age group.

Key Responsibilities of the Children’s Ministry Coordinator
