Job Description:

Falls Church Presbyterian Church is hiring a full-time Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministry (DCYFM) to lead our children, youth, and families as they grow in Christian faith. We’re looking for a Director to help us grow into our vision: a program centered on faithfulness that prioritizes high quality experiences in faith development and mission, undertaken among friends. We want to build a peaceful, safe community to openly and honestly explore, question, and grow in faith—not just another activity on a long list of “to do's” for often overscheduled children, teens, and families.The DCYFM will be responsible for:

  • Administering the children, youth, and family ministry, including recruiting and supervising volunteer ministry leaders to carry out the mission of the church;
  • Building relationships with children, youth, and families and facilitating similar relationships with other adult mentors; and
  • Nurturing Christian faith and discipleship in young people of the congregation by fostering Christian community, teaching from the Bible, and creating opportunities for them to practice the Christian life together.

Cover letters should address your approach to children, youth, and family ministry and how your experience is appropriate for FCPC.

 

The DCYFM Search Committee members are Kate Degnan, Jason Good, Kerry Grannis, Nate Hendricks, Carl Holmquist, Jenny Lansbury, Kristin Moore, Anne Mugler, and Bonnie Seklecki. Please contact the church office for contact information.
