Job Description:

Trinity is a growing church located in Greenwich, CT (in the greater New York City area), and will be launching our first multisite service in Darien, CT, in the near future. We are excited for what God is up to here in the Northeast, and we are looking for a special person to join us in bringing the Good News to this area. This position will initially split time and responsibilities between our existing location in Greenwich and our new multisite location. We imagine that this role will change as time goes on, and there is a possibility that this role will evolve to be solely responsible for Student Ministry at the Darien location.

 

We know that students in our world today deal with too much pressure to perform, anxiety, depression, and what seems like the weight of the world on their shoulders. We believe that the Church has a unique role in speaking to these pressures in our students’ worlds. We want to be a ministry that shows the love of God to each student and reinforces his/her identity as a beautiful child of God. We take our responsibility seriously in caring for and loving students for who they are and where they are in their faith journeys. This position will have an amazing opportunity to reach students in Fairfield County (CT) and Westchester County (NY), and we are excited to see the Kingdom grow as a result of Trinity’s presence in Darien as well as Greenwich.
