WE BELIEVE –
We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His future return to this earth in power and glory to rule over the nations.
We believe the way to be cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.
We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.
We believe in the Spirit-filled life, by whose indwelling the Christian is given the power to live a victorious and effective life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost—one to everlasting life, and the other to everlasting damnation.
HELPING KIDS SEE GOD AND PARTICIPATE IN HIS REDEMPTIVE STORY.
The ministry welcomes over 500 kids each weekend. Kids from six weeks through 6th grade experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. PC Kids is offered during all three of the Sunday morning services as well as Wednesday nights.
Sundays – Kids come together in a large group setting for a time of worship, drama and Bible lesson. Then they break into small groups to go more in-depth with the lesson and have a time of prayer.
Midweek – Every week hundreds of kids from the greater Fresno area gather midweek for an incredible time of worship, a challenging message and fun.
The biggest challenge for PC kids is also its biggest opportunity. With the 25M building expansion that strategically centers around the family and kids ministry, there are pretty high expectations for this new leader to lead the kid’s ministry into the future of PC Kids. This includes new vision, direction, and continued growth. The right candidate will have a proven track record of leading a growing group of volunteers and reaching new families. With a private Christian school on campus and the rich reputation of Peoples Church, the opportunities are limitless.
The ideal candidate is a highly creative, relational, and theologically trained ‘leader of leaders’ who loves God, loves children and their parents, and creates ministry to children birth through 6th grade in a way that fulfills the mission of the church which includes discipleship, outreach & expansion. Must be able to engage support of volunteers both from a strategic and general involvement. With the 25M expansion of church, Children’s ministry will serve as a focal point, and the leader must be able to drive and deliver growth. Children’s ministry encompasses Nursery, Preschool, Lower Elementary, and Upper elementary.
