Foundations Church

Children's Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Kenny Conley


Foundations Church is an incredible church that knows how to love the community well! This highly-relational and quickly growing church is looking for an experienced and dynamic Children’s Pastor to lead this ministry at a level not yet experienced. Foundations Church LOVES the next generation and wants to support and invest in a ministry that will partner with parents in raising kids to know and follow Jesus. The right leader will establish an effective infrastructure to build a thriving, relational Children’s Ministry that powerfully serves the families of Loveland and Northern Colorado!

About This Organization

Foundations Church began on November 11th, 2011, when a gathering of over 800 people showed up to demonstrate their interest at a local middle school. The overwhelming response launched Foundations into weekly services on Christmas Eve just a few weeks later. In just a few years, the church moved into a 50,000-square-foot movie theater, fully paying it off in 2013, and in 2019, Foundations launched a second campus in Windsor, CO, just a few miles away. Known for its message of grace, Foundations Church has a strong reputation as a welcoming, loving, and gracious church actively engaged in the local community. This is a different kind of church that creates space for people who have been hurt by the church or never imagined themselves in church. Foundations Church is committed to bringing the extraordinary life of Jesus to Northern Colorado.

  • Prepare and manage an annual ministry budget that is vision-driven and bold enough to keep Foundations on the cutting edge of vision realization and effectiveness
  • Research and design collaboratively with the Student Pastor to ensure ministry alignment, age-appropriate, and seamless transition between ministries
  • Champion the Children’s Ministry across campuses, striving to keep cross-campus communication, collaboration, and cross-pollination channels open and strong for the most vibrant multisite culture possible

  • A patient leader who can effectively disciple volunteers with various personalities and skill levels
