Kentwood Community Church
|Church Description *|
|Kentwood Community Church (KCC) is a unique and diverse congregation of over 2,000 adults, kids and students. KCC is a remarkable church that has been through a transitional season and is poised for a huge leap forward. The overwhelming impression one experiences is a sense of enormous potential for impact on the Grand Rapids landscape and beyond.
KCC is a strongly missional church and there is a depth and a palpable authenticity to this congregation that is very impressive and attractive. That depth stems from quality leadership at the pastoral level. An excellent staff team and an energized volunteer force, model compassionate service at its best.
There are currently three KCC campuses: Kentwood (Main Campus), the Wyoming Campus, which has its own beautiful campus about 15 miles east of the Kentwood Campus, and a campus in Nagpur, India.

|RealKidz is the dynamic children’s ministry at KCC and it serves almost 300 kids through the Sunday morning programming each week. RealKidz is a place where kids experience God—not just learn about Him—in a relevant, high energy way. KCC wants to raise the bar and continue to stretch the limits in effective children’s ministry.
With a large ministry scope and responsibility, the Children’s Pastor will need to have a can-do, get-it-done attitude that is driven, at times hands on, but knows when to lead the team from the sideline as a coach. With several young leaders on this team, they will need to lead by example and have the ability to cast a compelling vision.
The new Children’s Pastor will be responsible for leading the entire children’s ministry at all campuses while setting the pace at the Kentwood Campus. There is opportunity to impact all campuses and develop leaders and systems to make a lasting legacy of ministry. Balancing the development and forward movement of the Kentwood Campus, the launching of new campuses and the development of its children’s ministry leaders will be one of the biggest challenges of this role.
