Children’s Pastor
Cityline Church

Lakewood, California

Cityline Church is looking for a Children’s Pastor with a shared vision to be a place where kids learn to love Jesus and love the church. Ministry to kids and families is an important part of the church whose desire is to provide a safe, fun and creative environment that inspires learning and engages kids and families in spiritual practices (prayer, teaching, worship, community). Ministry to kids is designed to partner with parents and families in the spiritual growth of their children. Cityline Church would like the Children’s Pastor lead changes that will create a healthy, thriving ministry to kids and families.

Church Description

Cityline Church spent 4 years as a campus of a multi-campus church. In February 2016, Cityline Church was officially launched as an independent church. The focus of Cityline is the love God and love people as we serve the local communities through meeting various needs and providing a safe place for anyone seeking to discover how to establish and maintain a life-giving relationship to Jesus.

Cityline is a diverse multi-ethnic and multi-generational population, located in Lakewood, CA. People who call Cityline home come from any number of the 5 major cities within less than 2 miles of the church. Passionate about the neighborhood, Cityline hosts Christmas Tree lighting events, neighborhood VBS, CR, a food pantry and many other community involvement opportunities. You will find the average age of those who attend Cityline Church to be in their 20’s and 30’s. They work hard to remove churchy tendencies and are always outward focused and choose to make decisions based on those who are not there yet, instead of decisions based on those who have been there the longest.

Position Description

The Children’s Pastor at Cityline Church oversees the ministries, teams of volunteers, facilities and events for kid’s nursery to 5th grade and their families. Cityline sees 550 people on their campus each Sunday. With four services and children’s programming offered at all services, this Children’s Pastor role will require a leader of leaders who can build teams to invest in the kids.

Cityline Church as a whole is growing and reaching new families every weekend. The Children’s ministry is in a place that needs to grow and develop beyond the pace of the kids and families at the church. Cityline Kids is largely a big canvas with little paint and overflowing with much opportunity.

The ideal candidate for Children’s Pastor at Cityline would be a hands-on person who can roll up their sleeves and build a ministry, jump in and not be inhibited by how crazy they look or sound, and absolutely willing to do whatever it takes to help kids know Jesus.
