Under the supervision of the Executive Pastor, the Minister to Children plans, conducts, and evaluates a comprehensive Children’s Ministry (CM) that focuses on the spiritual growth of children along the First Baptist Church of Woodbridge (FBCW) 4D Discipleship Pathway. The Children’s Minister ministers to children from birth through 6th grade and their families. While CM tasks are the primary responsibility, the Children’s Minister will also work in concert with the FBCW Lead Team and be available to assist other staff members when needed on projects and tasks unrelated to the Children's Ministry. Staff members at FBCW foster and adhere to a teamwork model in order to accomplish our mission and have a greater impact on the entire church.
We have completed the initial pre-search phase of our timeline. We are excited to announce that after much prayer and consideration we have formed a search committee to seek God's wisdom and discernment in identifying our next Children's Minister. This team led by Dean Milne and Sara MacDonald began meeting and will be advertising the position and receiving resumes soon. Our search committee chairs and members have been identified after much prayer and consultation with church leadership. The committee is comprised of FBCW members who love Jesus, love His bride here at FBCW, have a heart and a track record of investing in Children's Ministry. We have parents, grand-parents, elders, men, women, young and old represented on the team. Please check out our search member committee below and be sure to pray for them during this process.
We have sharpened up the official job description and will begin advertising and posting it to all of our SBC and local seminaries, local and national SBC associations, Northstar network, and prominent church ministry staffing websites. Our team will also be connecting with local churches to inquire about potential candidates. If you know of anyone who would like to submit their resume for this position, please direct them to the email link below.
We have provided a 10-week prayer guide that you can use to pray along with the Committee as they continue their work this Fall. Every kid or student that prays with us throughout the next 10 weeks can turn in their completed prayer guide for a special gift as a "thank you" for praying for our new Children's Minister. Please consider partnering with us in prayer for this important process.
