Family Pastor / Children's Minister
Job type: Full-time
Location: Wichita, KS Post Date: July 23, 2017
The Family Pastor or Children's Minister will lead in developing a Gospel-centered approach to evangelizing and discipling children, and providing their parents with training and resources to raise a generation of followers of Christ. Our community is largely secular and/or nominal Roman Catholic. Foundational training will be a large part of the ministry focus, since only a small percentage of our community will have any faith background.
Concerning the Church and Leadership:
Redeemer's Grace Church is a Gospel-centered, prayer-driven church plant in Wichita, Kansas, currently meeting on weekday evenings for Bible studies. Our goal is to launch public worship in the Fall of 2017. Our small core team is committed to, and is currently investing life and resources in the new work. We are praying that God would send a Family pastor or children's minister to invest their life in planting along with us.
The centrality of God's word, prayer, and mission form our core values. We are a Southern Baptist church plant in agreement with both the Second London Confession and the Baptist Faith and Message (2000), and are building toward a IX Marks model of leadership. Elder-qualified men would be fully vetted, then fast-tracked toward eldership. Pastoral leadership is collaborative in style, therefore genuine convictional agreement in theology and commitment to the core principles of Word, prayer, and mission are essential since there will be significant opportunity to influence the direction of the church.

The position is currently volunteer, and will likely be so for the foreseeable future. The pastor works bivocationally to support himself. A calling to church planting and desire to work hard now so that future generations will know and worship Jesus are essential for this position. Because of where we are in the planting process, there is opportunity to craft the position in a way that fits personal gifting and passion for reaching families for Christ and helping them develop skills for biblical parenting where there has been no biblical foundation in their past.
