A dynamic children/family minister is one of the most sought after, but most difficult, church staff positions to find. CMS can help.


Churches are discovering that hiring a children/family ministry leader from within their membership (or community) can be more beneficial than looking for someone outside.


The ultimate goal is finding the right person who best fits the personality, giftedness, work ethic, commitment, spiritual maturity, and church DNA. Adding a known member with a proven track record can be a real advantage.


However, one concern may be the candidate's lack of formal training in this area. Well, CMS can solve that.
