About Capital City Christian Church
Capital City is a church with an average worship attendance of just about 800. We are located in Frankfort, the capital of Kentucky, a town of about 25,000 (though the town feels larger because so many state services are headquartered here). Although our church is over 50 years old, we are deeply committed to a “missional” approach to ministry. We believe the message must never change, but the methods must be constantly tweaked to stay effectively on mission. Our worship style is contemporary, though we are serious about being multi-generational.
We recognize the extraordinary importance of our children’s and student ministries. We also recognize the serious issues most churches have keeping their students. We don’t want to be one of those places where as students graduate from high school they also graduate from church. So our goal is to connect our kids, not just with our children’s and student ministries, but with God and his church. We believe some of the pieces that will help include building strong families, connecting our students with multiple Christian adults, and engaging them in service.
We also recognize that at our size we will need our children’s minister to be more than a kid magnet. They will need to understand both how to connect kids with Jesus and start them on a path of spiritual health, and how to build a team committed to growing young Jesus followers. They will also need to embrace our vision, mission, and core values so our children’s programs will fit seamlessly into the big picture.
Our Core Values:
Final notes: We take our mission and core values very seriously. We program by, budget by, and to some degree hire by mission. Under our Mission, Worshiping and Seeking the Lost are ranked first and second intentionally. We attempt to make our worship multi-sensory and participatory, engaging those with varied “sacred pathways.” We attempt to be innovative in our programming. We value grandparents and grandkids alike in our church family, though we tend to annoy grandparents more often as we try to be effective with grandkids.
About the position
The Children’s Minister will work with Staff and the Children’s Ministry team to design and implement a vibrant and cutting edge children’s ministry for children birth to 5th grade that involves worship, evangelism, discipleship, community, and service. Since the vast majority of Christians make their decision to follow Jesus before they finish elementary school, a powerfully effective children’s ministry is an extremely high priority for Capital City Christian Church.
We also believe that Children’s Ministry can only be strong if it is engaging parents in the process of leading their kids to Jesus and helping them mature as Christians. We would expect that an effective children’s ministry will be working to engage and nurture a partnership with families whenever possible.
The Children’s Minister will work under the direct supervision of both the Senior and Executive Pastors (depending on the issue). They will also work closely with our Student Pastor to ensure a smooth transition into the student ministries and foster intentional spiritual development from birth through graduation.
