In order to effectively oversee CFM in both the pre-launch and launch phases, the CFM Director must have the following competencies:

Spiritual Vitality – A personal relationship with Jesus Christ, marked by immersion in Scripture for personal sustenance and private prayer. The leaders’ driving ambition should be the beauty and glory of God and the gospel.

Learning – Fellowship Denver’s ministry requires leaders to be constant learners who can integrate insight from the following areas into a coherent missiology: theology, culture, spiritual formation, organizational development, and contextualization for children and families.

Communication – The job will require an organized approach to communicating with a large network of people. The CFM Director should be proficient in all forms of electronic communication and be able to respond quickly to a high volume of incoming messages.

Organization – The job will require organizing and executing multiple projects and scheduling time according to priority. The director will need to be able to prioritize both home and work life in a sustainable way.

People Development – The ideal CFM director will have a bent toward seeing and developing potential in people and coming alongside them as “coach” and “counselor” to help them grow up to maturity in Christ and in their own leadership.

Support – The CFM Director should be able to gladly work with and support the North Metro Congregation to extend the vision of Fellowship Denver.

Adaptability – The job will require successfully working through multiple phases of organizational growth and change. The CFM Director should embrace that job descriptions will change as the congregation changes. The CFM Director will also be excited about working in an environment where “quick pivots” in ministry strategy may be necessary and where unexpected interruptions and obstacles can occur.

Emotional Maturity – The CFM Director will lead in a highly relational environment, which will require emotional skills such as: having a clear sense of one’s own thoughts, feelings, and priorities; ability to discuss tense subjects by stating their own position while allowing others to share their opinion; proactively resolving conflict; admitting fault and seeking forgiveness; gently confronting sin and error; knowing when to seek negotiated solutions vs. win/lose solutions; knowing when not to negotiate or compromise core values; forgiving others and addressing their emotional wounds.

Ideal candidates will meet the following qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in professional experience
  • 2+ years working directly with children ages 0 through 12
