POSITION DESCRIPTION 
Director of Children’s Ministries (Children’s Minister: Birth – 5th Grade) 
at Boulevard Christian Church

Purpose of Boulevard Christian Church:
We are a family of dedicated believers, glorifying God, and impacting our community.  

Purpose of the Director of Children’s Ministries (Children’s Minister: Birth – 5th Grade):
To orchestrate and assist with leadership, teaching, and program direction of all children’s ministries, Birth through 5th Grade.

Principal Function:
This position provides a strong approach to reaching the youngest age group in the church and community. Being able to use creative energy, guidance and gain support is key. Equipping, empowering and releasing of others into this ministry will be crucial. Organizing and motivating volunteer leaders is central.  Responsibilities will include communicating the vision of the church and implementing it on a community and church wide level. 


Key principles of ministry at Boulevard
The Director of Children’s Ministries (Children’s Minister) should be a person who is committed to:

1.    Excellence.  We do all things as unto the Lord, and believe God deserves our best efforts.  Also, because we exist to make disciples, we are eager to do things with excellence.  If we fail to strive for excellence, we often compromise the effectiveness of our mission. We believe the Lord is most honored when we strive to do the best we can in all things. We have high standards and believe this honors the Lord and His Church.  

2.    The ministry of all believers.  Believing God has gifted every believer for ministry, we actively seek to discover and unleash those gifts in practical ways wherever possible. This ministry position exists not only to accomplish work in a specific area of need, but also to provide avenues for meaningful ministry to others whenever possible.  


Personal Attributes
The Director of Children’s Ministries (Children’s Minister) should be a person who is:

1.    Spiritually and emotionally mature.  This person needs to be a growing Christian who is strong and stable, with a supportive home life. This is a position for a strong person.  
2.    Passionate about the spiritual lives of children.  There must be a sense of calling, so that this leader feels the compelling desire to reach preschoolers at a their level, and is able to convey and pass on this joy and enthusiasm in infectious ways.   This is a position for a dynamic person.  
3.    Flexible.  This type of ministry, perhaps more than many other types of ministry, calls for an innovative, visionary, highly adaptable person who can creatively assess the constantly changing situation and intuitively lead forward without fear.  This is a position for adaptability. 
4.    Trustworthy.  Part of maturity is keeping confidences and protecting the witness and integrity of the church of Christ.  Loyalty to ministry staff and leaders, and to Boulevard Christian Church is essential. This is a position of great responsibility.  
5.    A leader.  This position calls for strong, positive leadership, and the ability to make a decision and act decisively. A leader is one who has earned a position in which others gladly, willingly, and trustingly follow.  This is a leadership position.  
6.    Goal oriented.  This person must be able to make steady progress on long-term goals while simultaneously handling various short-term concerns. Must be able to see the “big picture” and yet implement at a “detail level.”  This is a focused position.  
7.    Both task-driven and people-oriented.   While accomplishing many tasks, it is essential that a commitment to caring about people remain at the center of this person’s values. Anything less runs counter to our purpose and mission as a church. This is a multi-tasking position.  
8.    A servant with a positive attitude.  Attitude is everything, and this person will see this position as a ministry of service to others.  More important than specific skills or ability is the heart for ministry. It requires the Christ-like posture of helpfulness and service, while at the same time maintaining careful stewardship of time and the church’s resources.  This is a ministry position.  
9.    Responsive to oversight.  This person must be able to implement and relay plans, and respond to directives from the Senior Pastor and the Eldership.  
10.    Skilled in relationships.  The effectiveness of the position hinges on the ability to relate well in many different personal relationships.  This is a “people-position.”
11.    A Team player.  As a staff we support and encourage one another.  We yield our own “turf” when necessary to promote the overall good and success of the church’s mission.  All ministry areas work together.  This is a team position. 
12.    Filled with a sense of humor. This person should be able to take this position seriously, but also be able NOT to take themselves too seriously.  


Personal Abilities and Competencies 
The Director of Children’s Ministries (Children’s Minister) should possess ability as:

1.    Skilled leader:  Leading a children’s ministry is somewhat crazy at times.  It is dynamic, always changing, and can sometimes creates difficult circumstances.  This person must be skilled at building consensus, getting people to work together, communicating well, motivating a wide range of people, and maintaining a Christ-like spirit which produces positive morale and positive esprit de corps. The key here is the ability to work well with people on a variety of levels. 
2.    Effective worker:  Equally important is the need to be effective at accomplishing things. Needed are project management skills which enable this person to size up a situation, organize what needs to be done, and then get going and get things done, follow through, and evaluate for the future.  The key here is about getting things done.  

Within these two primary competencies, specific skills that are needed include: 

A.    Organizer:  Skills with assembling tasks according to priorities and efficiently managing time and resources of self and the entire church 
B.    Motivator: Skills with moving individuals and a group of people toward a common goal with everyone “on board” 
C.    Overseer of volunteer workers:  Skills with recruiting, equipping/training, and releasing volunteers is essential.  Ability to evaluate performance and motivate toward success is needed
D.    Communicator:  Skills in both written and verbal means of communication is vital.
E.    Change Agent.  Implementation of a vision always requires leadership that is able to move toward a goal.  Because as a church we have a mission of making disciples, all staff must possess skill in smoothly and sensitively making changes in order to fulfill our mission. While honoring our rich history, creativity and innovation are important traits of an agent of change.
