Menlo Church San Mateo

San Mateo, California

Menlo Church is reaching the San Francisco Bay Area for Christ through its six distinctly dynamic campuses. The San Mateo site, known for its entrepreneurial and innovative spirit, is on a significant growth trajectory and has a solid team that’s up for this adventure. With the former Menlo Kids Director stepping into a central ministry role, Menlo Church San Mateo needs a vibrant, relational leader-of-leaders who is humble, hopeful, and gritty. This campus loves to dream big, collaborate, and do whatever it takes to serve people well. The next Menlo Kids Director will be inspired and challenged as they champion children’s ministry so kids, families, and leaders will discover and follow Jesus for a lifetime.

Church Description

Seated in the heart of Silicon Valley, Menlo Church has six campuses and is truly “one church in many locations.” In an area that influences the rest of the world with companies such as Apple, Google, Facebook & Twitter, the opportunity for ministry has never been greater. God is using this inspiring and innovative community to reach people from all walks of life in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 2004, Senior Pastor John Ortberg has continually raised the bar on what it means to fully follow Jesus. He, along with the diverse staff, keep leading the charge in shaping a culture at Menlo that is thoughtful, determined, aligned, and hopeful.

Menlo Church San Mateo is teeming with life week-in and week-out. This relationally and spiritually energizing campus draws in 1,300 people each weekend, including 230 kids (infant to 5th grade). Menlo Church San Mateo’s four Sunday worship services (8:30am, 10am, 11:30am, 1pm) keep growing and leadership sees expansion on the horizon. It’s beautiful to see such a multicultural, intergenerational community come together as a spiritual family, especially in such a highly unchurched context. Menlo Church is truly a church where everybody’s welcome, nobody’s perfect, and anything’s possible.

Position Description

Menlo Church is committed to partnering with parents to help kids discover and follow Jesus for a lifetime so that every child knows and experiences God’s great love for them. As Menlo Church continues to strengthen its children’s and family ministries church-wide, the current Menlo Kids Director has shifted into a central leadership role. This transition has opened the door for Menlo Church San Mateo to bring on a new champion for children’s and family ministries.

With newly remodeled kid’s rooms, a dynamic campus staff, a generous budget, a world-class volunteer team, and central supporting staff in areas such as programming, administration, supplies, and special needs, the next San Mateo Menlo Kids Director will be equipped to thrive as a pastor and leader. This campus is ready to welcome someone to the team who will inspire teams, lead thoughtfully, and innovate collaboratively so Christ may be formed in kids, families, and leaders.
