Community & Connections Coordinator
The role of the Connections & Community Coordinator is to support the Director of Connections & Community in the fulfillment of the mission of seeing people get connected in community at VFC. This begins with a first experience in the parking lot through joining the community by serving in ministry teams and engaged in community groups. As people get connected into community, they then grow in their love and passion for Jesus while serving on mission.
While the Director owns the weight and develops the vision that moves people from being greeted in the parking lot to being welcomed at the front door to easily getting connected into one of our smaller group settings the Coordinator of Connections & Community is to be the "right hand person." This primarily means handling the administrative and logistical needs and rhythms as the Director works to oversee and build the leaders and ministry teams for this mission.
This position requires an individual who has a unique balance of friendliness while having a superb ability and desire to execute details. As the position is part-time (20-25 hr/week) this person will need to act proactively and without guidance as he/she learns the needs and rhythms of the position to ensure that everything under the ministries of connections and community is running efficiently and nothing is overlooked. The allocation of time and work-flow throughout the year will vary and depends on the needs of the Director.
