Children's Ministry Director


Jacksonville First United Methodist Church in Jacksonville, Alabama is searching for a creative, energetic, and organized Children's Ministry Director to take the helm of a ministry area with a very strong history in our church and community. The position is ideally full-time, though applicants for a part-time ministry commitment may also be considered. Jacksonville First UMC is a vibrant congregation in a university town, close to the campus of Jacksonville State University. The position involves ongoing relational ministry with families, leading exciting Children's Church worship, coordinating and expanding children's Sunday School classes, organizing volunteers for worship and acolytes, hiring and overseeing nursery staff, setting up furnishings and volunteers in our freshly renovated children's wing, seasonal Wednesday night children's ministries connected with Wednesday night supper, overseeing major fundraisers, and planning and implementing an assortment of seasonal children's ministries such as VBS, Fall Festival, fellowship outings, and children's programs in the sanctuary. The Children's Director will participate as part of a staff team in leading the general life of the church and confirmation classes, as well as assisting and supporting the staff of our weekday Kids 1st ministry (tentatively scheduled to reopen in Fall of 2022 now that the children's wing renovation is complete).
