About This Organization
Capital is a 25-year-old, multi-site church with two campuses located about 15 minutes apart in Salt Lake City and Park City, UT. Their current in person average attendance is around 600 people per week with 100 of those being children.
The Kids Pastor leads the Capital Kids and Families Ministry in Salt Lake and Park City. This leader is primarily responsible for the strategy and oversight of Kids Ministry and Parenting/Families Discipleship. Our Kids Ministry serves children newborn through fifth grade and includes weekend programming, online resources, periodic midweek programming or classes, as well as an annual Vacation Bible School. This pastor will develop and implement a plan for ongoing parent discipleship, equipping, and encouragement. They will recruit, inspire, train, and appreciate volunteers who invest their time, talents, and resources in Kids Ministry at Capital Church.
Additionally, this leader will establish the scope and sequence for children’s programs, evaluate, select, and implement curriculum, ensure that weekly age-appropriate lessons for all weekend services have been prepared, and order and distribute supplies. Other programming oversight includes staff support for Capital’s MOPS ministries (Mother’s of Preschoolers which meets midweek). On the weekend, the Kids Pastor will also manage check-in/check-out processes, connect with families and volunteers, and ensure safety is an utmost priority. Safety processes and procedures are absolutely critical for this position and must be in place as a foundation for building programs that can engage and inspire our youngest disciples. Our highest priority is discipleship – for the leader, children, and families. This leader will raise up and empower a team of leaders to execute the vision for Capital Kid’s Ministry.

- Fiercely-Committed Friendship – Wise leaders maintain an unflinching commitment to engage others in life-giving crucial conversations because we know if we don’t talk it out, we’ll act it out.
- Insatiable Hunger – Effective leaders have a sustainable drive to go above and beyond what’s required.
- Life-Long Learning – Failure is always an option. Growth isn’t.
- Empathetic Listening – When you listen to people, you don’t just understand them. They understand that you understand them—even when you don’t agree with them.

- Solutions Orientation – Leaders eat problems for breakfast and innately see them as opportunities to increase our trust in God and develop ourselves and our teams.
- Strategic Planning – Leading requires a never-ceasing focus on the big picture of our vision.
