Do you love God and love children? Then we encourage you to prayerfully consider Logos Baptist Church (Mississauga).
The Children’s Ministry Pastor will serve as the head of the entire children’s ministry, overseeing a team of volunteers that get to love our kids from their first year of life right up to grade 7. The Children’s Ministry Pastor will be part of the pastoral team consisting of our Lead Pastor and four other ministry pastors. The Children’s Pastor will work closely with the other LBCM Pastoral ministries.
Overview of Church and Community
Hi there! Here at Logos, we are a tri-congregational (three languages) community. Our church consists of English, Cantonese, and Mandarin congregations, all working together as one large family under the leadership of one lead pastor. We are a mid-sized church with a combined weekly attendance of 300+. This means you’ll have quite a few children to get to love and pour into.
Church Purpose | Mission Statement
Our church’s unified mission is to carry out the Great Commission in the spirit and heart of the Great Commandment. We highly value the roles of evangelism and discipleship in the development and maturity of a church. We believe a healthy church is identified by its sending and serving capacity rather than its seating capacity. While each congregation has its unique approach to this, our vision, heart, and passion are the same. We strive to Love God and Love others.
