Children's Ministry Intern

Description
The Rock Children’s Ministry At The Rock, children’s ministry is focused on growing up a “10 to 1” kind of disciple of Christ. This means, on the one hand, introducing kids to Jesus by letting them see “God with us” up close and personal, and on the other, guiding kids into a 10 to 1 kind of walk with Jesus themselves. Therefore, the Rock’s children’s ministry is built primarily around establishing interpersonal relationships between kids and children’s leaders as well as other adults from the congregation. Our Sunday Service classes are designed to give children a chance to interact with multiple adult believers over the course of each month as leaders and helpers rotate from week to week. These adults are encouraged to take an interest in the lives of their students and seek to apply the Story of God to their individual lives as they get to know them. In the little community that is a Sunday Service class, students are also taught how to apply the grace and peace of Jesus to their relationships with those around them. Thus they begin to attune their lives to the “10 to 1” goal as they discover that they have a part in God’s Story because when they give their lives to Jesus, God is always with them and He lives and loves through them.

Our Sunday Service classes occur, as indicated by the name, during the latter half of our Sunday service. Our children worship with the rest of the congregation during the music, prayers and giving portion of our Sunday Service. They are released to their own classes just before the message portion of the service so that they might better understand the Word of God for them each week. One of the advantages of interning in The Rock’s children’s ministries is the opportunity the intern will have to be coached by our Children’s Ministries Director, Nancy Norton. Nancy has a Master’s Degree in Children’s and Family Ministries from Bethel Theological Seminary and serves on the National Children’s Disciple-Making Team for the Christian and Missionary Alliance. She is also one of a handful of Professional Children’s Ministry coaches who mentor students who are studying to earn their Children’s Disciplemaking Leadership Certificate.

The Children’s Intern will be responsible to:

  1. Teach the Pre-School/Kindergarten Sunday Service class once a month on a regular rotation with other instructors (we are utilizing D6 lesson materials).
  2. Teach the 1st – 4th Grade Sunday Service class once a month on a regular rotation with other instructors (we are utilizing D6 lesson materials).
  3. Provide substitute teaching availability on short notice.
  4. Copy and assemble curriculum for volunteer teachers and helpers.
  5. Ensure that teachers and helpers have all of the supplies they need for their Sunday Service classes.
  6. Oversee and communicate volunteer staff scheduling, including assisting staff with emergency schedule changes and acquiring substitute teachers/helpers.
  7. Provide leadership and play a significant role in planning and implementing special Children’s Ministries programs or activities during internship period (i.e. Children’s Musical, Christmas Program, VBS [if functioning as an intern during summer]).
  8. Participate on Children and Family Ministries Leadership Team
  9. Connect monthly with the Director of Children’s Ministry for encouragement, guidance, and accountability.

Skills and Qualifications
The applicant needs to have the following qualifications and skills:

  1. A person who has given his/her life to Jesus and is constantly seeking to grow deeper in His Holy Spirit.
  2. A person with excellent interpersonal skills who can build significant personal relationships with multiple students of different age levels.
  3. A person who can critique the Christian church of today, but is not cynical about it. Rather, they are invested in a creative Biblical transformation of the church to the post-modern world.
  4. A person who can, in good conscience, ascribe to the statement of faith and the vision of The Rock of the C&MA.
  5.  A person with good organizational and leadership skills, who can effectively manage and communicate with volunteer staff.
  6. A person who is respectful, but not intimidated by working with, and at times leading, people older than themselves.
  7. A person who can effectively communicate both the content and the spirit of the Word of God both through curriculum and personal conversation.
  8. A person who loves children and desires to see them become whole hearted disciples of Christ, not just well-behaved adherents to their parents faith.
This person needs to be willing to submit to the background check required of all of our Children's and Youth workers.
