Director of Ministry with Children & Their Families
First Presbyterian Church
Nashville, Tennessee

First Presbyterian Church (FPC), born by grace in 1814, is Nashville’s first organized Church in the city. The history of FPC is rich, and its roots are deep. We’re here to bring glory to God, grow in grace together, and serve the larger community in Nashville and around the world.

FPC is a multi-generational congregation, which we believe enriches our common life. We believe that gratitude, hospitality, and generosity are marks of mature Christian faith and can transform our church into a contagious, gospel-centered witness to the love of God.

Worship remains the engine room of all we do. We believe that God the Father, Son, and Spirit desires to encounter us in worship, leading us to transformed lives that are passionate about living out his purposes in and for the world. We thank the Lord for our large and lively campus, which is home to Oak Hill School, the Early Preschool, school-year sports ministries, and summer camps.

FPC is seeking a dynamic, thoughtful, and visionary leader to serve as its Director of Ministry with Children & Their Families to build upon the current success of this vibrant and vital program within the life of the Church. This ministry oversees the daily operations of Christian formation and family activities for approximately 400 children ranging in ages from birth through sixth grade. It includes the responsibility for the Early Preschool Program, Nursery, and the Young Children and Worship Committee.

The ideal candidate would align with values of the Ministry with Children & Their Families, where all are seen as unique children of God. God’s person for this role will confess Christ preeminent in all things (Colossians 1:18) and will live a life reflecting the Lordship of Christ. The Director shall possess the right competencies and initiative to lead with excellence, and is someone who desires, above all else, to sow seeds of faith and trust in these young and precious lives. Interested candidates are invited to review the job description and then submit a letter of interest and current resume to [email protected].
