    Why We Love This Opportunity

    If you’ve never heard of or been to “Real Florida,” you’ve got to check out First Baptist Church of Umatilla! It’s located in the heart of the state, midway between The Gulf and the Atlantic Ocean. The communities of Lake County are filled with incredible people in need of Christ, and God is using this church to reach so many of them week-in and week-out. Visit one time, and you’ll be hooked. Better yet, consider jumping on board as their new Children’s Pastor/Director so you can be part of this remarkable ministry.

    About This Organization

    Every weekend well over 1,400 adults and kids show up at a vibrant, growing church in northern Lake County, Florida. First Baptist Church of Umatilla has experienced exponential growth over the past 14 years – spiritually, numerically, and physically. As they continuously seek to “forget what lies behind and REACH FORWARD to what lies ahead,” the leadership and congregation keep serving Christ with greater and greater resolve.

    The heart to share the Gospel is evident throughout the ministry, but more than a conviction, the church’s prayerful action results in an average of 100 baptisms per year! Christians and unbelievers alike find hope in and through the First Baptist Church of the Umatilla family. People of all ages and walks of life don’t just attend services at 8:00 am, 9:30 am, and 11:00 am each Sunday; they leave changed to be a blessing to others. It’s no wonder First Baptist Church of Umatilla has expanded the facilities on their 17-acre property multiple times to accommodate an increasing number of people and ministries. God is at work and on the move in and through this highly relational, biblical, practical, and missional church.

    Position Description

    FBCU Kids is committed to helping kids (infants through fifth grade) come to know, love, and serve Jesus! They average 125 children on Sundays and 200 more at Awana on Wednesdays. There’s also an array of support ministries for families of all backgrounds and needs. With God using FBCU Kids to impact so many lives, they’re excited to bring on a new Children’s Pastor/Director who’s ready to roll up their sleeves, plant roots in Central Florida, build a network of remarkable teams, and lead kids and families long into the future at First Baptist Church of Umatilla.

    The next Children’s Pastor/Director will be stepping into a key role in a solid ministry with a team of 100 dedicated leaders. They’re dedicated to building bridges between church and home through Orange’s program and curriculum. Rather than overhaul what exists, FBCU Kids needs an innovator to bring a fresh perspective in a way that honors how God wired this distinct body of believers and their specific ministry context. Given the scope, history, and future of FBCU Kids and Awana, the next Children’s Pastor/Director will need to foster increased levels of energy, enthusiasm, and engagement within the existing volunteer teams.
