ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS

With the strategic organization of other Children’s Ministry staff, the Coordinator is encouraged to attend one worship service. The Coordinator would then work with the Assistant to get the classrooms ready for tear down after the last service.
  • Volunteer Management – In each Children’s Ministry session the Coordinator helps to recruit, train, and care for our team of volunteers. The Coordinator provides timely communication to let volunteers know what to expect week to week. The Coordinator also works to manage the schedule and substitutions as needed.
