The Union Church of Hinsdale, IL, is looking for an energetic and resourceful person to lead all aspects of our congregation’s ministry with youth (ages 12-18). We are an open and progressive United Church of Christ congregation, and are committed to intentional Christian faith development with openness to the contemporary world. The position may be part-time for youth work (25 hours per week), or full-time with additional responsibilities. Compensation is competitive and commensurate with skills and experience. Full time will include benefits.
Priorities for the ministry are to help all youth grow as disciples of Jesus Christ, integrate youth into the overall life of the congregation, invite and welcome non-member youth and their families, and sustain the priority of service to others via our “work tour” and other programs. We have strong staff and lay support for this essential ministry. A Bachelor of Arts (or equivalent) is required, with a minimum of two years of professional experience leading a congregational youth ministry program, or working with youth in a Christian ministry position (e.g. outdoor/camp ministries).
