Grace Chapel is growing and making an impact in kids’ lives every day.  If you’re passionate about supporting children in their early discovery of a relationship with Jesus and you get excited when you see new friendships form then we want to talk to you!


Grace Chapel, a non-denominational multi-site church, in Massachusetts is seeking a Director of Elementary, Children’s Ministry, for our Lexington Campus. The Director of Elementary will serve on our Children’s Ministry Team and will directly support our 300+ weekly elementary children and the team of lay leaders who support them.


Our future director should have a deep commitment to sharing the love of Jesus with children and to having fun while doing it. Strong communication skills are important. Honesty, a love of laughter and a highly collaborative spirit are all essential to success in this role.


You need to be a team player, because the director will be part of our children’s ministry team, our next gen team and our Lexington campus team. The director will lead a team of 100+ volunteer leaders. These many roles will require a high relational capacity and passion for serving alongside others. Finally, the director must be flexible with a willing spirit that doesn’t believe any task is beneath him or her and a desire to serve kids – even if that includes being covered in slime.

Principal focus:
This is a ministry-enabling position that supports Albert Lea United Methodist Church’s Mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Our values, in order, are caring, worship, faith-building, kids, youth, and growth in all areas. We have chosen to move from two half-time positions (children’s director and youth director) to this newly created position. Both programs have solid programming in place for building a bigger program. The church has made great progress in being outward-focused in recent years.

The Children’s Program offers Sunday morning and Wednesday night programs. Outreach events include the Easter Egg Hunt (over 300 kids attends this event), Trunk and Treat (over 500 people attend this event), and Summer Camp (Vacation Bible School). A solid group of adults are involved in the Children’s Program.

The Youth Program does many activities, including mission trips and small groups. A solid history of fundraising is in place to help support this ministry.

RELATIONSHIPS: Employees in this position are responsible to the Staff–Parish Relations Committee. Ongoing supervision is by the Pastor.
