Grace Students: Our Grace Students ministry is devoted to investing in our 6th-12th grade students to become outward focused followers of Jesus. Through weekly teaching with small groups to fun events and serving opportunities, our goal is to equip our youth to love Jesus fully and be a light in their community. We are looking for a hardworking, Jesus-loving individual who is passionate about youth ministry and can provide insight and leadership to Grace Students. Not only would you mentor students, but also help with curriculum and teaching.
Grace Kids: In Grace Kids, our mission is to help every child become an outward focused follower of Jesus! We desire to partner with parents as their children grow in faith and in the understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow Him. Our ministry consists of children ages birth-2 years old (Nursery), 3 year olds-Kindergarten (Grace Kids Jr) and 1st-5th grade (Elementary). The Grace Kids Resident will learn all aspects of Director level leadership including shepherding volunteers, learning large and small group models, scheduling, event planning and other children's ministry related skills and tasks. They will focus primarily on the Grace Kids Jr division, leading and working as the division level director with mentorship by the South Overland Park Grace Kids Director.
Worship: Do you have a desire to develop your God-given talents to lead and flourish as a worship leader? This role is full of opportunities to grow in understanding of band dynamics, worship environment production, and teamwork. This resident will help contribute to planning, organizing, and leading multiple worship experiences on weekends and Wednesday nights and participate in weekend worship planning with campus worship directors. You will get to rotate to all of our campuses to see worship in different environments and help bring people closer to Jesus through music. If this sounds like your dream job, then this is for you.
Outreach: At Grace, we are passionate about local and global outreach. We do global outreach because we believe God desires for all nations to know Jesus and it is our ambition to share the story of Jesus among unreached people groups. Our local outreach consists of Shelter KC, Freedom Fire, Church Under the Bridge, and Mission Southside. Our outreach resident will be building relationships and serving with not only our local partners, but also global partners. There will also be heavy research to find new partners and to learn more about how the church can be more successful in outreach.
Campus Pastor: This residency will prepare you to serve as a campus pastor whether that is at Grace or at a multisite church. We are looking for someone who is passionate about giving spiritual and pastoral leadership over a church campus. You will learn how to disciple a congregation to grow in spiritual disciplines, and be able to cast vision and build a welcoming culture wherever you are planted.
