Church Description *
|God has strategically used the people of The Bridge Church to be a blessing to the people of Fresno since their start in 1959. In September of 2016, Pastor Andrew Smith, and his wife, Megan, moved to Fresno so Andrew could fill the role of Lead Pastor of The Bridge Church. Andrew brought with him a fresh perspective and new vision to not only reach the people of Fresno but to reach the whole region and become “a church for the valley helping people discover and follow Jesus!” The Bridge Church is seeing new, young families joining the church and is reaching over 1,300 people on the weekends.
The Bridge Church is located in California’s Central Valley. Fresno is conveniently located only a few hours from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, the Pacific Ocean, 45 minutes from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and only one hour from Yosemite National Park. The Bridge Church represents the cultural diversity of its surrounding community.
|Position Description *|
|The Children’s Pastor at The Bridge Church is responsible for the oversight and development of staff and ministry initiatives for the Children’s Ministry areas of the church for children birth through 4th grade. The role of Children’s Pastor reports to the Executive Pastor. This next leader to the children’s ministry will find a dedicated staff which includes an Elementary Coordinator, a Preschool Coordinator, a recently added Nursery Coordinator and administrative support.
Leadership development, relational connection and a passion for the community will need to be at the heart of this leader. The current children’s ministry mission and philosophy was developed to see a child graduate from 6th grade having had the opportunities to learn to Love God, Live Truth, Learn to walk through life with friends and Serve their World. What an awesome opportunity ahead to help kids find and follow Jesus…for life!
