The Meeting House is a vibrant and growing multi-site church in south central Pennsylvania. Being historically vested, with over 100 years of history serving and loving the surrounding community, The Meeting House is also dissatisfied with the status quo and seeks to create worshipful environments where people who aren't into church can find a home. Our mission is to help people find life by following Jesus and we are looking for a Children's Pastor who can lead through innovation, collaboration, and the development of a strong leadership base that partners with parents to nurture and equip children to become lifelong followers of Jesus.
Lead. Take ownership of TMH "central services" children's ministry (including strategic planning, budgeting, curriculum, etc.), while you personally lead TMH Kids volunteer teams at Carlisle. Supervise the TMH Kids ministry assistant (staff member) and work at the direction of the Family Life Pastor to provide leadership for the Dillsburg Campus Family Life Pastor and others as the organization grows. Oversee the strategic relationships with on-site preschools at TMH campuses.
Innovate. Continuously develop and implement systems that support TMH and Family Life departmental goals. Replicate great ideas, and don't be afraid to try new ones for the sake of engaging children and families even better. Teach Bible-based truths, lead honest discussions, play crazy games, and inspire others to join the fun.
Relate. Make children's ministry fun and approachable for "regular attenders" and a growing number of new guests each week. Leverage resources to present Biblical content for children and parents in a way that is practical and aligned with the TMH goal of being a church that unchurched people want to attend. Create a safe and inviting ministry environment for children and volunteers who represent the beauties and complexities of a multi-cultural, socio-economically and politically diverse world.
