Ridge UMC is a regional congregation, serving Indiana based Chicago suburbs, with an excellent reputation for mission, outreach, and hospitality. Because our congregation was formed 60 years ago by thirteen families; children and families remain our passion
for the church today as well as tomorrow.
Ridge seeks a passionate, hard working, and dedicated full time pastoral leader who is eager to deepen and develop the spiritual lives of children, youth, and families. This pastoral leader will provide dynamic leadership, direction, and supervision for
the outreach, fellowship, faith formation, mission and worship of children and their families to fulfill Ridge’s mission and vision.
Preference will be given to candidates who are ordained as Deacons in the UMC with a call to teach and equip disciples. Candidates can apply who are commissioned in anticipation of ordination. Experience with lay volunteers, children and /or youth ministry,
and leadership within a congregation are a plus.
