Mulberry Street UMC, a vibrant and engaged downtown church in the heart of Macon, Georgia, announces a search for its next Children’s Minister. This position reports to the Senior Pastor and serves as a vital member of the ministry staff of the church.
Our next Children’s Minister will value collaboration and innovation, bringing with her or him a willingness to try new ideas and learn from experience. This person should value working on a team, including seeking and receiving input from others. She or he should also bring new ideas and a passion for working with children and their families. The position offers the chance to be inventive as she/he works with the new Senior Pastor and other staff members to build up the ministry of the church.
Mulberry values its children as active participants in the life of the church, including worship. This position will lead existing programs, such as children’s church, while also developing new opportunities to nurture our children and attract new families. This is an emerging and evolving position, valuing comfortability with ambiguity and initiative-taking.
The Children’s Minister position is part-time, requiring approximately twenty hours per week. Salary and benefits commensurate with experience. Previous experience working with children or in a ministry setting are required, as is understanding and background in The United Methodist Church. Seminary students are encouraged to apply and allowances will be made for time to meet schooling requirements.
