Part Time (29 hours/week)


The Bridge Church is a fast growing church in Spring Hill that has grown from 200 to 3500+ since 2011. In our community, 0-10 is the most populous age range; this dynamic, coupled with our vision to reach as many possible people with the message of the Gospel, has created a growing need for an Early Childhood Coordinator to pour into leaders and equip them to bring the Gospel to children.

Bridge Kids is one of the largest mission fields at The Bridge Church, with over 500 children coming through our ministry every weekend and hundreds of volunteers dedicating their time to the mission. The Bridge Kids Early Childhood Coordinator will be responsible for relational development with the leaders in our Early Childhood environment, as well as equipping volunteers in their roles, assimilating new volunteers, and identifying/developing future leaders in our ministry. This role requires a passion for the mission of Kids Ministry, but more importantly, the person in this role must be passionate to see people step into their callings through serving and develop them to be leaders in ministry.
