First Parish Church is seeking a part-time Youth Director to lead our middle school and high school programs with energy and enthusiasm. The program currently has three parts:

– religious education on Sunday morning

– community service/mission

– evening/weekend social events

Our Christian Education Committee and church Staff, including the Pastor, will offer ready support. Parents give helpful input and participation. We have a Safe Church Policy. The United Church of Christ (U.C.C.) can provide resources and training as well as organized Youth Events.

Candidates should be comfortable with the congregational tradition of the U.C.C., but our families have an ecumenical background.

We want our youth to be welcomed, valued, and supported in a safe and fun environment where they can develop and build faith through the inspiration and encouragement of the Youth Director.

A candidate should have strong communication skills and some experience with Christian Education. Enjoying our young people will be a primary contribution to our church’s ministry.

The position would start August/September, 2013

Compensation will be determined and commensurate with job responsibilities.
