Connection Point Church

Kids Pastor/Director



Why I Love This Opportunity

Dan Lovaglia


God is on the move in and through Connection Point Church. Like many churches, they’ve experienced significant peaks and endured painful valleys as a ministry. Today, the pastors, staff, and lay leadership are living out humility, unity, and courage as they head into the future together. They’re ready for a dynamic Kids Pastor/Director that can join the team and take children’s and family ministry to the next level!

About This Organization

Over the past 35 years, God has grown the ministry footprint of Connection Point Church in depth and breadth. Located just southwest of Kansas City, the church’s longstanding reputation draws people in from far and wide, across all ages, ethnicities, and socio-economic realities. The ministry offers exemplary worship music and creative productions, solid biblical teaching and study, a relational approach to discipleship, and compassionate care through local and global missions.

Connection Point Church has much to celebrate and is also in a season of revitalization. They navigated two difficult Senior Pastor transitions in 2012 and 2019, along with the challenges facing churches through the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020, the church called Lead Pastor Brian Stone to realign the pastors, staff, lay leadership, and congregation so this distinct family of faith can lean into its future, not rely on its past.

Today, this 700-member congregation has a renewed sense of vision and purpose, a compelling mission and strategy, and a resolute spirit to be a church for every generation that connects people to Jesus and one another. Connection Point meets at 9:30 am for an intergenerational service marked by authentic worship and engaging Bible teaching. Their LifeGroup community hour starts at 11 am with specific classes for all ages. Connection Point is excited to welcome a new Kids Pastor/Director that will bring increased team leadership and consistency to reach, serve and make disciples of children and families.
