Job Description:

Director of Communications (Part Time)


Are you committed to high quality, innovative communication that connects people to God through a variety of media?


Are you passionate about sharing the good news of what God is doing in and through a local congregation, providing excellent information to both church members and the larger community on ways to belong, believe, and become a blessing?


Can you think proactively, strategically, and collaboratively to develop marketing plans, evaluating their effectiveness and envisioning their potential?


Can you serve as a creative director, establishing and maintaining a consistent ministry image through electronic worship design elements, as well as through on-going relationships with both church organizations and community media?


First United Methodist Church of Jefferson City, Missouri, is a growing, downtown congregation with a vision for everyone connected to our church community to belong, believe, and become a blessing in the name of Christ. We welcome questions, believe that faith is meant to unite people rather than divide them, and seek to join God in loving and serving outside the walls of the church. Two years ago we added a community center to our already-established food pantry in order to serve neighbors in need and allow church members to share their gifts in the loving spirit of Christ. Last year we completed a major renovation of our main facility to create a modern, flexible, and welcoming space where both contemporary and traditional worship services can be celebrated, and where people of all generations can connect with each other and with God. 


Now we are seeking a part-time Director of Communications to help tell the story of what God is doing at First United Methodist Church.  The responsibilities of this position will include:


  • Generating content and developing effective strategies for sharing the story of God’s work at First United Methodist Church both within and outside our congregation.
  • Creating and managing all web-based, screen, and print communication, including newsletter and bulletin.
  • Applying excellent organizational skills and adaptability to develop short- and long-term communication strategies.
