Job Description:
Our Director of Discipleship will design and direct our spiritual formation ministry across all age groups . Discipleship Ministries includes what has traditionally been called Christian Education but places more emphasis on living a life of discipleship than simply teaching Christian concepts. Spiritual formation looks beyond the classroom to consider how our entire church life supports people in their spiritual journey. This includes how we worship, the use of small groups, retreats, and special spiritual formation experiences in prayer, witnessing, and service. In short, the primary task of our Director of Discipleship is to design and direct a series of experiences across all ages which call, challenge, and coach people into intentionally living as disciples of Jesus Christ.

The Director of Discipleship position is a full-time position but holds the possibility of negotiating the number of hours (30-40) and weekly schedule (flex-time). Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings are a requirement as is a weekly Tuesday morning staff meeting. We are open to negotiating total hours within the range of 30 to 40 hours a week. We can also negotiate summer hours (June, July, August). Maximum compensation is set at $35,000. This includes all expenses, including any Health Insurance and Pension contributions that may be requested subject to negotiation.

We are also conducting a hiring search for a Youth Director who will work alongside our Director of Discipleship. Please see complete job description may be found at
