Family/Outreach Coordinator

Central Church of Christ - Findlay, OH

Engage, Involve, Challenge
Central currently employs a full time Minister and an Administrative Assistant that works 30 hours a week. The Sunday Experience is becoming a place where we engage those who attend from the time they arrive, encouraging participation, and then challenging individuals to grow in their walk with Christ. Current models Central uses to engage, involve, and challenge include: Sunday Worship Experience, Sunday school, Women’s Ministry and a community after-school homework program for children. The people at Central are great at stepping up in service when they are clearly presented with a task.

The Need
There is much to be celebrated at Central, but areas for growth still exist. To develop devoted followers of Jesus that ignite the community, the following areas need attention:
• Continual improvement of the Sunday Experience (music, drama, relationship building, teaching, etc)
• Outreach with children and their families
• Recreate energy in all age level youth groups
• Discover ways to reach out to the community in heartfelt service
• Establish a process that matures believers in their faith (small groups, service groups, Bible studies, etc).

Seeking a Servant of God
Based on the mission Jesus gave, the work Central has already been doing, and the current needs:
• We are seeking someone that can use their passion for God, abilities, and interests to help develop disciples in Findlay.
• We desire the whole community to feel and experience God’s love and believe we can be a movement of people that share this love.
• We trust God will guide the person he wants to partner in His work at Central.
• Notice we are not looking for just a “youth director” or “worship director.” We are seeking someone that has abilities and passion in any of the areas of need who would be willing to serve in their desired interest in partnership with all other servants here at Central.

To Apply for this Position Please Send:
• Resume (with references)
