Children’s Pastor/Director
Atlantic Shores Baptist Church

Virginia Beach, Virginia

Atlantic Shores is near the beach – cool and casual – but it’s far from laid back when it comes to pastoral leadership in ministry. They’ve rebuilt their staff over the past few years and are now bringing on a new Executive Pastor and Children’s Pastor/Director to round out the team and raise the bar on disciple making. Atlantic Shores needs a gifted, passionate, inspiring, and servant-hearted leader who is called to reach kids and families with the Gospel. The next Children’s Pastor/Director can’t be someone who’s jumping on board with one foot because, in their mind, Shores Kids is a stepping stone to something else. The ideal candidate will have ministry education and experience that demonstrates a personal calling and articulate philosophy of ministry, as well as an ongoing commitment to pastoral development (i.e. seminary coursework in-process or degree completed).
