Pacific Palisades,


Why I Love This Opportunity

Crystal Mazzuca


This beautiful church is passionate about the next generation and is eager to find a visionary leader to lead families and children. There is so much freedom to be creative, lead, develop, and curate culture. The fact that there is a part-time staff in place ready to be led as well as the incredible invitation for teaching opportunities tells me that this is an amazing and unique position that a passionate leader would thrive! Add to that the ministry the church has with their private school and the leadership this position will have there as well, and this is truly a Family Ministry dream come true.
