Church or Org Description
Prestonwood Baptist Church’s mission statement begins with a desire to Glorify God by introducing Jesus Christ as Lord to as many people as possible…and that is what the heart of this church has been since it was started in 1977. In 1989, Dr. Jack Graham accepted the call to be the Lead Pastor, and he still continues in this role today. Located in Plano, Texas, on 140 acres of land, the church is thriving with 47,000 members across three campuses.
Plano is a short drive from Dallas and is, therefore, an area known for sports! Cowboys, Rangers, Mavericks, Stars, and FC Dallas. Second to sports is shopping, food, and really, really good BBQ. There is also a strong culture with parents in the area to involve their kids in extracurricular activities…fine arts, sports, academics, and more. Every autumn, Plano hosts the world-famous Hot Air Balloon Festival.
Prestonwood Church is looking for their next team member to join the Prestonwood Kidz Team as the Creative Arts Director. The Creative Arts Director casts a creative vision through overseeing and directing the creative environments and experiences for the Children’s Ministry at all campuses. Everything developed by the creative arts team will be adapted and shared with the other campuses. On the Plano Campus, the Creative Arts Director will be overseeing five venues housing five age groups from 2 to 11 years old.
Beyond Sunday opportunities, Christmas, Easter, and Adventure Week during the summer are other events to have a creative impact. The basic opportunities include media, environment, sets, live drama, worship teams, and other elements. This role will have a creative support staff and will build teams of volunteers who are fantastic communicators with kids. The role of the Children’s Creative Arts Director reports to the Minister to Children.
