Collaboration - Work with other ministry area directors to create cross-collaborative activities or projects, such as weekly kids music on Sunday mornings or family involvement in global and local outreach on project basis. Work with team leads by delegating tasks to utilize team members’ strengths to accomplish monthly goals/tasks, as well as to meet spontaneous needs. Work to include the children in the larger body of Resonate as a whole.
Development - Create pathways for family ministry volunteers to grow to new levels of responsibilities, from the volunteer level to director role. Develop relationships with team leads and volunteers to know strengths and areas of opportunities for them to grow as a leader. Resource the team with tools for growth in core competencies by quarterly meeting and trainings, providing learning materials, and connecting mentorship partnerships.
Stewardship - Develop standards and structure to ensure that all classrooms are staffed appropriately with volunteers for Sunday Mornings and that any other event childcare is provided.
