The Children’s Pastor is responsible for all aspects of ensuring the spiritual growth and development of children ages birth through 5th grade. This includes curriculum selection, volunteer recruitment and development, classroom management, and operational management necessary to ensure successful weekend children’s services and periodic special events.

First Christian Elizabethton is a loving church that goes out of its way to be friendly and open. The church building is almost a whole city block size with room for a children/ youth ministry to grow. The downtown area also has dinning and shops that are just a few steps away from FCC. When you work downtown, you can eat lunch at the Covered Bridge Park on a sunny day.

Community Life:

We have the largest trunk or treat in the County that has been in partnership with the Elizabethton Downtown Association. Our church hosts several community groups and has the best food pantry in the County. We host an outside Easter worship that the City helps us with and we are partners with Harold McCormick Elementary to help with the schools needs.

The community is right next to the Cherokee National Forest and the Appalachian Trail runs just a few miles away. Just a few minutes away is Watauga Lake, which is 16.2 miles long and covers 6,430 acres. Elizabethton also has the Tweestie Trail which is used for walking, biking that goes through the city and extends to Johnson City nearby. This is a great place to live and be a part of family ministry.

Staff Culture:

We have a great staff culture. Staff meetings are fun and we also have Christmas parties and luncheons together. You will find a friendly and productive work environment. We can provide funds for conference times each year for professional and spiritual growth and have a great facility and video equipment for staff. We also provide a laptop to ministry staff and a nice office space.

We have grown spiritually deeper during the pandemic but, like many churches, we have also lost families as many have “opted out” of church. We want to build a vibrant staff to handle the new challenges and believe we can come back strong with God’s leadership.

Our Beliefs:

We have a doctrinal position that aligns with most Stone/ Campbell movement churches. We practice weekly communion and baptism by immersion for people who are old enough to believe in Christ as the son of God. We partner with other local churches to support proclaiming Christ to the community.

Come join a loving church family and be a part of a great team!
