Children’s Ministry Leader
River of Life Church

Elk River, Minnesota
Church Description *
River of Life is a multi-generational church with a contemporary worship style that blends fresh songs of modern worship. Services are purposefully designed to complement the sermon. The atmosphere is “Minnesota nice,” warm and welcoming. As you walk into the main lobby, you are greeted with warm smiles in a freshly updated environment. There is a buzz in the air with energy and activity of people connecting and sharing life.

Located just 30 miles northwest of Minneapolis, River of Life Church was established 24 years ago by the Evangelical Free Church of America. Senior Pastor Dave Johnson has led the church for 23 of those years, bringing Godly leadership, strong Biblical teaching, and a warm, engaging family atmosphere. Currently, River of Life welcomes 700-800 adults, youth and children—primarily young families ages 25-40—to church each week.

Position Description *
River of Life’s Children’s Ministry serves over 130 kids, age birth through 6th grade, during Sunday mornings and midweek programming. River of Life believes in discipleship and values Christian education with a strong focus on parent involvement and support. The mission of Children and Family Ministry at River of Life is to equip parents and children with the knowledge and passion to know Jesus Christ as their Savior, love Him with all their hearts, and forever serve Him joyfully.

The new Children’s Ministry Leader will be arriving in an exciting new season of change and improvement as the children’s ministry shifts from a Sunday School style to a LG/SG leader-facilitated style environment. Also, there will be a shift to year-round ministry from school-year aligned elementary ministry. The new Children’s Ministry Leader will help continue and support the new changes, as well as shift the culture from a staff-led to a volunteer-led culture.
