  • Recruiting, developing, and empowering teams of volunteers to implement a dynamic ministry to kids
  • Leading families and encouraging them to connect what happens on Sunday with the home Monday-Saturday
  • Remaining current on trends and practices in family ministry and exploring new ways of doing Children’s Ministry for a new generation in a new time
  • Serving on the Shared Leadership team, championing and leading the charge in fulfilling the vision of the church by reaching and developing the faith of the next generation

Skills you’ll need to have:

  • Easy going style but able to push forward hard when needed
  • Honesty and integrity
  • Sense of humor
  • Ability to think outside of traditional Children’s Ministry strategies

Greenwood has a ton of opportunities for families and it’s really a great place to live and raise a family. The people of Greenwood are rooted in family values and you get the best of both worlds in the Midwest charm and the accessibility of the big city. Greenwood offers a lower cost of living compared to similar cities surrounding Indianapolis and has three high-performing school districts – Greenwood Community, Center Grove, and Clark-Pleasant – all possessing a rich academic history. In addition to all of the wonderful things Greenwood can offer, the city is still just a 15-minute drive to Indianapolis, where families can go for a stroll on the canal, catch an NBA or NFL game, visit the Indianapolis Zoo, or catch a concert on the lawn at White River State Park.
