Church: Goodlife Community Church
Position: Kids Leader/ Pastor

Based on the Sunshine Coast, Goodlife Community Church was established with a vision to serve and affect our local community for good through the development of a fully equipped sports and recreation centre. In 2001 the Goodlife Community Centre was opened. It has grown significantly and includes gym, swim school, café, indoor sports and seminar rooms, drawing people from a broad cross-section of our community. Our desire is to see people come into hope, health and wholeness in all areas of life.

There is a significant position opening within the Goodlife team for a part-time Kids Leader/Pastor. Working under the leadership of our Families Director and with administrative support, we are looking for a dynamic, passionate child enthusiast to lead the GL Kids programs.
