HUMC is seeking a fun, vivacious, Christ centered individual for a full-time salaried position interested in guiding, mentoring and loving our youth (grades 6-12) as they grow in their faith. As a United Methodist church, we are seeking someone who understands our doctrine, has a strong faith, and a love for and ability to work with teens both in groups and individually. He/She will need to be present on Sundays for Sunday School and worship, on Wednesday evenings for youth ministries and at other church and youth events.
Qualifications: While a college degree in ministry or education is preferred, we would also consider an individual with post-secondary education who has experience in youth ministry or education. This person will need to be self-motivated, have a Christ-like attitude in words and actions, and a desire and ability to interact with a variety of youth. Organization skills, communication skills, and the ability to recruit, encourage and manage a team of volunteers, while also working with youth, parents, staff and the community at large will be needed.
Description of Duties: We are looking for an individual to plan, promote and direct the Christian education of our youth through a wide range of studies and activities including, but not limited to mission trips, retreats, Bible studies, holiday programs and summer events. Our director will need to work within the guidelines of our church’s Safe Sanctuary policy while holding youth and volunteers responsible for doing so as well.
