Job Description:

Beloit First Christian Church is experiencing God's favor in reaching significant numbers of children in our rural setting in north-central Kansas. We are seeking the person of God's calling as our full-time Director of Children's Discipleship. We are looking for someone who loves God and loves kids to lead our passionate volunteers in making and growing disciples for Jesus through our vibrant ministries for infants through Grade 6.

The Director of Children's Discipleship is a full-time salaried ministry position at Beloit First Christian Church (BFCC) for a maturing, loving disciple of Jesus Christ who has a heart to make and grow disciples of children (infants through Grade 6) through leadership and direct involvement in BFCC's Children's Ministries, and under the supervision and direction of the Senior Pastor.

1. Recruit, train, and equip adult leaders and helpers to do the work of ministry for: Childcare Nursery (infants age 4), Kid's Church (kindergarten grade 4), CLASH (grades 1 6), Vacation Bible School (grades 1 6), and Sunday Morning Life Groups (pre-K grade 6). This may also include personally leading and teaching these groups when volunteer leaders are still being developed.
2. Perform regular outreach to make and grow disciples of parents and guardians of students (infants Grade 6), including follow-up on worship visitors, seeking to help them make next step connections in becoming and growing as a disciple of Jesus.
3. Oversee and manage the Children's Ministry Budget by approving and making needed purchases of curriculum and supplies for ministry.

About Beloit First Christian Church:

We are a small church (averaging 210 between two Sunday worship services) on a great mission: to make disciples for Jesus Christ of all people, and to grow disciples to joyfully obey all of His commands to love God and love people. In our rural, family-friendly farming community here in north central Kansas, we are focused on fulfilling the Great Commission by living out the Great Commandment. In particular, the Lord has determined to bless us with a growing number of young families, so we are seeking to keep in step with the movement of the Holy Spirit by hiring additional staff who can help equip God's people for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up. 

Job Qualifications:

Some college education in children's ministry is preferred, but not required. We need a Biblically passionate, well-organized person who is able to communicate our vision to make and grow disciples for children, and then use that to recruit volunteers into serving will succeed in this position. Though this role will have plenty of opportunities for direct ministry with children, our programs are growing and require someone who can equip God's people for works of service, rather than be centered on one personality.
