Childrens and Family Pastor

Job Description

Faith City Church (Faith) is a growing, diverse, generational church located in the heart of Halifax. Running three services per week as well as a second church at a local university, Faith continues to actively share the gospel of Jesus, meet the felt needs of our community, and equip our members to express the love of Christ to the city of Halifax and the province of Nova Scotia.    


Over the course of Faith’s 90-year history, children and families of our community and those within the church have been a major focus. This area of ministry has been re-envisioned several times over the years finding spiritual success in sidewalk Sunday school ministry, community outreaches, and innovative initiatives in children’s ministry historically. In order to better serve the ministry vision of the church the time is upon us again to adjust, innovate and reimagine Childrens and Family ministry as the Holy Spirit leads.  We are seeking a Childrens and Family Pastor to lead this process.         

The successful candidate will be passionate about teaching and discipling children ages 0 through 12 and will have a philosophy of ministry that recognizes discipleship as central, and engaging parents holistically with the gospel, as critical to the overall success of the local church ministry. This individual will work alongside the rest of the pastoral team to develop, implement, and oversee a strategy for discipling children and parents within the church and engaging families of our local community through an ongoing missional outreach plan.     


The successful candidate will enjoy working on a team, as well as leading, discipling and empowering their own group of leaders and volunteers to fulfill ministry goals. Faith values discipleship, empowerment, and is a collaborative work environment. As such the Children’s and Family Pastor will be an integral part of the pastoral team, influencing the broader mission and ministry of the church.    


The successful candidate must be a citizen or permanent resident of Canada and will be a PAOC credential holder or be willing to be credentialed with the PAOC.
