Director of Children and Family Ministries, Westminster Presbyterian Church

 The children and family ministry of Westminster Presbyterian Church is a robust ministry that guides families in life long faith formation and discipleship. Westminster works to cultivate a sense of wonder about God’s world in the lives of the children in our church community. Our ministry programming seeks to reflect Jesus’s call to be a good neighbor in our community and help families grow in a Christian faith, reflecting God’s hospitable and inclusive love for everyone. We believe Christian formation happens through various settings and experiences such as play and recreation, hands on service, and intergenerational worship, whether at home as a family or in our church building. We also believe children often reveal to us what it means to participate in the kingdom of God with joy and wonder. As we look toward the future of children and family ministry at Westminster, we are excited to welcome a Director whose work experience and Christian faith reflect Jesus’s call to include the littlest ones among us in the life of the Church. The full job description is available here.
