Christ United Methodist Church

Christ United Methodist Church in Lafayette, Indiana, is a supportive, welcoming, missional, and growing congregation where we believe children are the Church now. Directing this ministry will position you to equip children to follow Jesus for the rest of their lives. You will be a part of a larger team directing a vibrant congregation to impact the southside of Lafayette through compassionate outreach.

Lafayette is a growing and diverse community with three excellent public school corporations and is home to industry and internationally acclaimed Purdue University. In 1999, Christ UMC moved to its current location with a vision to serve this expanding community. Our congregation’s goal is to be the light of Christ as we develop disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

The Children’s Ministry Director trains a team of adult volunteers, deploying them to impact the lives of children through Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, the Arts, Camping, and other faith development opportunities. The CMD will be developing a culture of intentional discipling alongside the pastor and staff of Christ UMC Lafayette. Working with parents and immersing yourself in the life of the congregation is both rewarding and transformational for you as a person.

This half-time position pays $25,000 to start. Though the hours are flexible, working Sunday mornings and Tuesday mornings (staff meetings) is expected.

If you are interested in being part of a team, impacting the lifelong discipleship of children and their families in a thriving community, please send us an email attachment to Rev. Kurt Freeman, kurt.freeman@inumc.org and Office Manager Hollie Kessler, hollie@christumchurch.org.
