Job Description:

Children's Director / "Apprenticing Champion for families" – Mission Hills Church Austin
The primary role is to play a strategic role in the family ministry experience of Mission Hills Church. This function is to:
Ř Serve as a ‘Lead Discipler', apprenticing both children and volunteers to experience and practice a living faith.

Ř Provide leadership for_noemailanizing content, classrooms, and volunteers.

Ř Effectively minister to three ‘congregations' helping grow children, parent, and volunteer participation.

About Mission Hills & the family ministry. We are a four-year-old church start-up with a dedicated approach to making faith and_noemailmunity accessible. We currently meet at 10:00am on Sunday's via Zoom. Prior to quarantine, we met at 4:00pm on Sunday's in the Fellowship Hall of Ascension Lutheran Church in NW Hills. Our hope is to secure time and space to move to a Sunday morning.
We hosted three separate classes for pre-K, K-3rd grade, & 4-5th grades utilizing The Gospel Project Curriculum.
Pre-K childcare is available for the entire service. Kids are part of worship and dismissed prior to the message. Classroom time is approximately 45-50 minutes.
During quarantine, we started a kid's church from 9:30-10am. The current role is, using the Gospel Project Curriculum, share a bible story (via video or teaching) then prepare a Kahoot game quiz at the end. We hope to begin meeting in person mid-November.

Leadership Description:
Coordinate and shepherd rotation of paid and volunteer workers through regular meetings during the month and correspondence.
Create a leadership ‘huddle' with volunteers for prayer and lesson preview 20 minutes before start of service.
Oversee family/child registration, updated current database.
Establish regular volunteer training for volunteers on curriculum and protocols.
Order & schedule new curriculum; purchase supplies and equipment as needed.
Oversee background security checks for all workers.
Support outward-focused initiatives (ie ‘Lab' wkds) for kids and families to engage faith.
Organize childcare as needed for additional meetings.
Meet_noemailmunicate regularly with Pastor

Looking ahead to 2021: In addition to regular in person meeting for worship and_noemailanizing children's classes on the 2nd & 4th Sunday's...
The first weekend of the month is reserved for a "Church-as-Laboratory", which seeks to make faith &_noemailmunity accessible. It's also to encourage our people to ‘experiment' with faith through hospitality, generosity,_noemailpassion,_noemailmunity, and apprenticing.
The Third Sunday of each month, we're introducing "Worship On Location". In an effort to grow a more local presence across Austin and promote Tribes, we plan to launch three house worship meetings. The idea is to provide live worship, on-site teaching, & children's ministry at each home. It would require a children's director willing to teach/lead three times (&/or train volunteers to lead) on the third Sunday morning. These would be one-hour long meetings at 9, 10, & 11:00am in north, central, and southwest Austin. At each house, we would worship together (20 min) then dismiss kids to a kid's lesson (25 min), while adults have their own message.

Hours & Compensation: 30 hours/month = $750/month
This position is for local applicants.
