Miamitown Church of Christ, Miamitown, OH - Student and Children’s Minister

Miamitown Church of Christ

We are seeking an additional staff member to help us facilitate the rebuilding of our Student Ministries and to help strengthen our existing Children’s Ministry. Our priority is to find the person that God is calling to Miamitown Church of Christ, so we are willing to build around an individual’s strengths and passions. About 3 years ago our church embarked on a redefining journey to “renew our focus” as a church. So far in this endeavor we have generated a new Mission Statement, developed new Core Values, and defined target areas of ministry and growth. Through the course of “Renewing the Focus” our whole church has been involved, unified, strengthened, and energized. This has brought an atmosphere of enthusiasm, increased faith, and optimistic hope that has been exciting to experience together. In this process we have identified a number of staffing “needs and desires” that we would like to fill in the next few years. We believe the greatest of these needs are in the areas of Student and Children’s Ministry, however, some of the alternate “needs and desires” can be swapped out to build a position for the right person. This is a full-time salaried position with benefits.
