The Alliance Southeast

The Family Pastor will be the face of Family Ministries at Edgewater Alliance Church by providing visionary leadership in three key areas: Kids Ministry, Youth Ministry, and ministry to the whole family. We believe that parents bear the primary responsibility to disciple their children and that the church is called to equip, encourage, and empower parents do this well. It is the desire of EAC leadership that all generations are led to and through a relationship with Jesus Christ and have opportunity to grow as disciples who bring the Gospel to every man, woman, and child. This is a full-time, salary position requiring 40-50 hours per week. Primary Responsibilities Kids Ministry: You will provide visionary leadership to help this established department improve and grow in partnership with part time support staff. You will be a visible presence in this ministry as you interact with families and support volunteers who lead the weekly activities. Student Ministry: You will be the primary visionary leader as well as the lead communicator. You will implement a discipleship strategy that serves both students within the church and the surrounding community. This strategy should include class offerings (Sunday), weekly youth gatherings (Wednesday), seasonal events (retreats, camp, mission trips etc.). Family Ministry: While age specific ministries like the ones listed above are helpful, they should not be the only strategy. We desire to be a church that helps to equip parents for the challenges that come with striving to raise children to know, love, and serve Jesus. This is an area that we are looking to grow in with the help of a passionate Family Pastor. You will have a lot of freedom to do this as you see fit, but ideas would include: events for the whole family, date nights for parents with babysitting, online discipleship resources for parents to use with their kids, parenting classes etc. In addition to these roles, unique to the Family Pastor, there will be opportunities for preaching, facilitating funerals/weddings, and speaking into the larger direction of EAC. This position also requires seasonal travel away from home for events, trip, and conferences.
