Are you an energetic and creative leader?
Do you have a heart for parents and want to impact the next generation?
We have a specific mandate and are on the hunt for a Senior Children and Parents leader whose desire and call it is to impact kids and their parents with the Kingdom of God.
Hillview Community Church is a community of believers designed to transform nations. We have a strong history in revival, signs and wonders and believe in cultural transformation. At the core of culture is families.
When we say we are looking for a leader for children and parents, we are talking about an extremely important leadership position within the life of our community. The leader we are looking for loves Jesus, loves children, is dynamic, innovative and wants to pursue outreach to both children and parents. If this is you, apply now!
MORE ABOUT THE ROLE
The Leader, Children and Parent Ministries, will bring together and oversee our community of children age 0 to 12 years, their parents, carers and our volunteer leaders. You will lead the establishment of a vibrant worship and learning space for our children to grow as powerful sons and daughters of God.
Initially, we are looking for you to work with us in establishing and leading a team of volunteers to develop and deliver an age-appropriate weekly Sunday morning program. Following this we want to discuss the potential of another midweek opportunity for children and their parents. These programs will guide, support and encourage children in understanding, hearing and learning about Jesus and what it means to accept Him into their lives, love His presence and be empowered by the Holy Spirit.
WORKING AT HILLVIEW COMMUNITY CHURCH
We believe that leaders need to be given the freedom to lead in their areas of expertise. In this role, you will be backed by a supportive and mature team who will help you to realise the dreams for this ministry that God has planted in your heart. In like manner, Hillview believe we have been given a vision from Holy Spirit about impacting this generation which we would love to discuss with the successful candidate.
An important core value for us is that before we are leaders, we are a Son or Daughter of God. Therefore, your relationship with God is a priority for us. Our heart is to see you fulfil all that God has placed before you and to encourage you as you walk in intimacy with Him.
