Description

About Foundations Church

Foundations Church began on November 11th, 2011, when a gathering of over 800 people showed up to demonstrate their interest at a local middle school. The overwhelming response launched Foundations into weekly services just a few weeks later on Christmas Eve. In just a few years, the church moved into a 50,000-square-foot movie theater, fully paying it off in 2013, and in 2019, Foundations launched a second campus in Windsor, CO, just a few miles away. Known for its message of grace, Foundations Church has a strong reputation as a welcoming, loving, and gracious church that is actively engaged in the local community. This is a different kind of church, a church that creates space for people who have been hurt by the church or never imagined themselves in church. Foundations Church is committed to bringing the extraordinary life of Jesus to Northern Colorado.

Position Description

The Children’s Pastor leads an amazing staff team and highly engaged volunteers to create compelling, age-appropriate, God-centric, spiritually-enriching ministry environments for children from birth through 5th grade. This leader will develop relevant, fun-filled experiences to connect and inspire children to live for Jesus. Additionally, the Children’s Pastor will help to empower and equip parents to be the spiritual leaders in the lives of their children. Lastly, the Children’s Pastor will demonstrate pastoral leadership, building and shepherding volunteer teams that execute our Kids’ Ministry with full hearts and deep excellence within a growing multi-site model.

Key Responsibilities

  • Craft the most meaningful Kidmin culture possible in order to nourish the deepest spiritual growth of Foundations’ kids and its families
  • Build a collaborative team that recruits, trains, empowers, coaches, and unleashes staff and volunteers into sweet-spot roles
  • Prepare and execute creative and compelling Kidmin experiences through a Spirit-led and prayerful process of brainstorming, planning, training, collaborating, celebrating, implementing, and evaluation
  • Prepare and manage an annual ministry budget that is vision-driven and bold enough to keep Foundations on the cutting edge of vision realization and effectiveness
  • Research and design collaboratively with the Student Pastor to ensure ministry alignment, age-appropriate, and seamless transition between ministries
  • Champion the Children’s Ministry across campuses, striving to keep cross-campus communication, collaboration, and cross-pollination channels open and strong for the most vibrant multisite culture possible

What a Strong Candidate Would Look Like

  • A leader with a proven track record of leading staff, volunteers, and families
  • An innovative, strategic thinker regarding short and long-term children’s ministry vision and needs
  • A highly relational leader with high emotional intelligence, an individual who is in touch with the thought processes, hopes, fears, joys, and struggles of the Northern Colorado community
  • A patient leader who can effectively disciple volunteers with various personalities and skill levels
  • A leader with formal biblical training. Ideally, a seminary degree with an emphasis on Children’s Ministry and/or Leadership

What's Exciting About This Opportunity

Foundations Church is an incredible church that knows how to love the community well! This highly-relational and quickly growing church is looking for an experienced and dynamic Children’s Pastor to lead this ministry at a level not yet experienced. Foundations Church LOVES the next generation and wants to support and invest in a ministry that will partner with parents in raising kids to know and follow Jesus. The right leader will establish an effective infrastructure to build a thriving, relational Children’s Ministry that powerfully serves the families of Loveland and Northern Colorado!
