Have you ever wanted to serve in a church where the lead pastor really does "get" the importance of children's and family ministries? Higher Vision Church - San Diego is that church.  The lead pastor is a former Children's and Family Ministries Pastor who not only has a heart for that ministry, but also understands the high importance and unique needs of children's ministry.  Not only do we say that children and families are important - we are also willing to put the budget and backing behind it.

Higher Vision Church - San Diego is a church plant scheduled for launch in early 2017.  Even in the pre-launch phase we have an incredible opportunity to launch children's and family ministries now as we build our leadership team.

We are located in North San Diego County on a major six lane highway with over 600,000 people within a 10 mile radius.  Most of the families in our surrounding suburbs have children.  Children's and youth ministries will be a main focus for us.

We are looking for someone who knows how to grow this department, build and lead a ministry team, and give spiritual and physical oversight to this ministry. Experience and a track record of ministry growth is preferred. However, we are willing to train the right person for the job if your experience is in another area. We are looking for character, attitude, and the person who is the right "fit" with our pastoral team.

Benefits to you:


1.)  Get in on the ground floor and work with experienced church planters.  
2.)  Our church already has a building and children's ministries facilities. No set up and tear down!
3.)  Our Children's Pastor will be a valued part of the pastoral team.
4.)  This part time position will grow to become full-time.
5.)  If you or your spouse are musically talented, there are other job opportunities in a neighboring business for part-time employment also.
6.) We are already gaining great momentum. Our church has already begun meeting weekly in our prelaunch phase.  We currently have one weekend service, youth ministry, and women's ministry, with much more to come in time for our launch.
7.) Our strategy is to launch fully functioning.  Just as Starbucks wouldn't open a new store half ready, neither should we launch half ready.  Although we are new and growing, we will operate and cast vision for the harvest we expect. This position is available now.
8.) Work with a pastoral team that invests in you as a person.
9.) No micromanaging here. We empower our team to accomplish the vision.
10.) You can't beat the weather in San Diego and the beach is 15 minutes away.

Higher Vision Church - San Diego


We believe God has a higher vision for the families of San Diego.” The Apostle Paul declared, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think according to His power that works in us” (Eph. 3:20).

The phrase “exceedingly abundantly above” simply means “extraordinarily and unusually noteworthy.” Higher Vision San Diego has a higher vision to see God do extraordinarily and unusually noteworthy things for these families.

The people of HVSD will be identified by:

1. Our love and care for one another.
2. A multi-cultural staff and congregation that reflect the population of San Diego.
3. Our commitment to creating environments conducive to spiritual, emotional and relational growth that produces "life transformation."
4. Our relentless pursuit to know God ourselves through prayer and His Word-and demonstrating before other people what that looks like and how they can know God also.
5. Non-traditional strategies for meeting the needs of the people of our community so that we can win them to Christ and make a spiritual impact throughout the region.
6. A pervasive leadership mentality that is committed to growing, training, equipping and releasing people to do what they were created to do.
7. The extreme implementation of hospitality and service in every environment that we create.
8. Bold Faith. We will prove God true by believing in big dreams and trusting Him for the miracles we need in order to accomplish the task He has set before us - both as individuals and as a body of "believers."
9. Our passionate connection to God through Worship.
10. Our continual improvement. A team of believers who give God their very best with a teachable heart.
