REPORTS TO: Director of Family Discipleship and Senior Pastor

STATUS: Part-Time Employee

QUALIFICATIONS: This person must be spiritually mature, teachable, trustworthy, humble to follow and able to lead. This individual must have interpersonal and leadership skills to lead and manage large teams. A qualified candidate can communicate effectively, follow-up diligently – drive to clarity about expectations – and have conversations about jobs well-done and not-so-well done. This person will need to build teams and shepherd groups – as well as counsel and guide volunteers and parents in biblical disciple-making. Organization and administrative skills will be important. Enthusiastically embracing the doctrine, mission, and ministry philosophy of Crossway Bible Church will be critical. Formal training in ministry or theological studies is preferred, but not required. Our hope is the individual in this position would continue our practice of raising up volunteer leaders to assume greater and greater levels of responsibility for ministry tasks under his or her supervision and that he or she would be free to focus on cultivating an atmosphere of fellowship and discipleship where emerging leadership skills in others can be developed.
