Family Ministry Director Full Time

First Baptist Church Waverly

Waverly, OH


Position: Family Ministry Director, Full-Time

First Baptist Church in Waverly, Ohio, is looking to hire a Family Ministry Director to minister to students, children and families in our congregation and help reach students, children and families in our community. The opening is a full-time position that could include the addition of some other ministry responsibilities depending on the candidate’s preference and ability. Resume should reflect interest and experience in any of these other ministry skills. The position’s priority will be the student ministry. Starting salary package is negotiable, based on education and experience, with an approximate range of $45,000 -$60,000 per year.

Setting: Waverly is a small town in southern Ohio with a population of about 5000 in town and 15,000 in the surrounding areas. Waverly sits in the transition between central Ohio and Appalachia. The area is quite diverse socio-economically – populated with both affluent, middle-class families and families living in poverty or very poor conditions. First Baptist is an established church continuously striving for improvement to better reach our community for Christ. The average attendance is currently about 180 (220 pre-Covid) in two Sunday morning worship services. The congregation is getting younger while remaining an inter-generational church. Several families even have 4 generations that attend.

Philosophy of Ministry: We look to equip volunteers and parents in the outreach and training of children and teenagers alongside the leadership of a family ministry director. That director should be able to balance fun, relational, community outreach events with challenging and thought-provoking Bible study. They should look to equip parents for discipleship of their children while also helping those students without Christian families. The successful candidate will be able to relate to a variety of students and adults. Our overall philosophy would be a mix of family-driven ministry and programmatic ministry.

Education / Experience: Significant experience in youth ministry and family ministry leadership (volunteer or paid) either pursuing or completed a ministry degree.

Other Areas of service: This position is full-time and as such, at least 40 hours of work per week are expected. However, we expect the actual role as described may only be 25-30 hours per week, therefore we would like to see this individual help fill another smaller role in the church or community. This is open for discussion and can be tailored to a candidate’s gifts, experience, or desires to learn. Possibilities include leading worship, administration, communications, recreation, missions, etc.
