WA: The Lakeview church in Tacoma, WA, is seeking a man to fulfill the role of Family Minister. I'll just add their info here: "The Lakeview leadership has come to understand and embrace that faith formation is a partnership between a congregation and the home. The overall task of this Ministry Position is to help families with that task. We desire someone who is experienced in working with youth, as he will be the primary youth teacher. This person will also lead the parent committee that will be tasked with planning and providing activities for the teens and families. The goal is to help families give their teens a firm spiritual, intellectual, service and social foundation so they will remain Christians as they move in adulthood. It will be important that this person have children and thereby understands some of the needs of families in today’s world. The Family Minister will also serve the families of younger children to help families establish a strong foundation of basic Christian knowledge and education in the home. One additional leadership role is to help develop and lead the congregation in Community Outreach, helping families to have and pass on an outward focus in their faith. The Family Minister should also feel comfortable preaching during the assemblies, as it will be important for the Family minister to inform and instruct the congregation of the things needed to carry on the work of the family minister.
