Key Responsibilities:

  • ● Collaborate with other North Highlands staff to carry out the mission and vision of North Highlands Bible Church.
  • ● Provide leadership and direction for all children’s ministry programming.
  • ● Develop and implement an effective ministry plan for shepherding and discipling current North Highlands children and their families in the way of Jesus–learning Him, loving Him, and living like Him more and more every day.
  • ● Develop and implement an effective ministry plan for reaching and engaging “unreached” children and families in the Lake Highlands community.
  • ● Recruit, train, and supervise adult children’s ministry volunteers.
  • ● Identify and develop new adult children’s ministry volunteers.
  • ● Plan and execute the annual children’s ministry calendar including all trips and events.

A Strong Candidate Embodies:

  • ● A proven Christian character and commitment to following Jesus in his or her private and public life.
  • ● A mastery of understanding current culture and the issues facing children and families today.
  • ● An undeniable desire to reach people inside and outside the church with the grace and truth of Jesus.
  • ● A self-starting, entrepreneurial “ready to run” spirit.
  • ● A flexible “team first, people first” mentality.

Preferred (but not required) Education and Experience:

  • ● 3+ years of vocational children’s ministry experience.

Why you will love this opportunity:

  • Lake Highlands has all the charm and community pride of small town Texas, but with all the perks of living in one of the greatest cities in the country.
  • As a children’s minister, you will love how rapidly Lake Highlands is growing young, with one new middle school currently being built and another established junior high being renovated to accommodate the boom in elementary aged population growth. We are also strategically positioned in the heart of Lake Highlands directly across from the local high school. You couldn’t ask for a better setup/location for children’s ministry.
  • Finally, we know you will love working alongside the current leadership team at North Highlands. Rich Roush, the Lead Pastor, had nearly 20 years of vocational Next Gen ministry experience in North Texas before becoming the Lead Pastor at NHBC in December of 2022, and it won’t take you long to see that the rest of the staff is pretty rad, too. We are fully committed to seeing children’s ministry thrive at NHBC and would love to talk to you about it.
