Kids Ministry Pastor/Director

Park City,


Being located in a resort community is a blessing and a curse. People from all over the world would love to live in Park City, but most come to vacation or visit. The transient nature of life in this area really impacts ministry on a regular basis. Those that plant roots in Park City do so for all kinds of reasons, many of which draw people away from regular church involvement. On the other hand, there’s a hometown feel to Park City and Mountain Life Church is part of that culture. Those that move nearby are drawn to this ministry’s solid biblical teaching, authentic community, and genuine care for families. While the Kids Ministry Pastor/Director needs to be focused on making sure kids and families love being part of Mountain Life Church, he or she can’t show up without resonating with the heartbeat of Park City life.

Church Description *

Mountain Life Church in majestic Park City, Utah welcomes everyone that comes through its doors like family. The relational draw into the community and toward Christ is compelling, and is clearly part of their congregation’s DNA. Since forming in 1992, Mountain Life Church has dedicated itself to bringing people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and develop in them a heart full of passion for God and compassion for people.

Over the past 26 years, Mountain Life Church has grown to 650 people attending weekly, including approximately 100 children ages infant through 5th grade. They have two contemporary worship services each Sunday at 9:00 AM and 10:45 AM with Mountain Life Kids offered during both hours. During the week, many (up to 65%) of the congregants participate in Life Groups for Bible study, fellowship, and serving opportunities. Mountain Life Church has a deep commitment to local and global ministry through service partnerships, financial support, and international missions. In this next season, the leadership is excited to break ground on its new facility and bring on its next Kids Ministry Pastor/Director as Mountain Life Church builds towards the future.


Position Description *

The ideal Kids Ministry Pastor/Director for this next season needs to be an inspiring and sustainable team builder that thrives in the active, family friendly culture of Mountain Life Church and Park City. The children’s ministry (approximately 60 volunteers and 100 children) is currently led by a full-time Interim Mountain Life Kids Director. When the new Kids Ministry Pastor/Director is hired, he or she and a part-time associate will be responsible for all facets of ministry with kids (infant through 5th grade). This includes children’s ministry at both Sunday services (9am & 10:45am), as well as special events and programming for children and families.

The next Kids Ministry Pastor/Director must effectively cast a compelling vision, invite kids and families into the adventure of following Christ, challenge people across the church to step up to serve, and develop deep roots in the Mountain Life Church family while doing so. Mountain Life Kids needs someone strong who can rally volunteers from the shadows and into the light of meaningful ministry. More than running myriad programs, the Kids Ministry Pastor/Director will equip a cadre of leaders and raise their level of ownership in serving God, children, and families long into the future.
