Associate Pastor for Youth and Their Families, Woodmont Christian Church, Nashville, TN 

Position Opening

Associate Pastor for Youth and Their Families

Woodmont Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

Nashville, Tennessee

Growing Disciples of Christ by Seeking God, Sharing Love, and Serving Others

About the Church

Woodmont Christian Church is a growing, thriving, 2000-member faith community in Nashville, Tennessee. A city of musicians, start-up entrepreneurs, and cutting-edge social enterprise, Nashville is consistently ranked as one of the top 25 places to live in the country.  The church is a melting pot of backgrounds and denominations, galvanized around the congregation’s deep commitment to mission and outreach.

Woodmont is known throughout the community for its leadership on social issues, engaging preaching, warm fellowship, and most recently, for its excellent youth ministry.  Clay Stauffer was called as the church’s senior pastor almost ten years ago, when he was still in his 20s.  Clay is a published author and a frequent contributing writer for the city’s newspaper, serving in many ways as a pastor to the city. Clay and the church’s exceptional staff work with a uniquely collaborative style that has resulted in a climate of energy, enthusiasm, and strong lay leadership throughout the church.

Woodmont is a part of the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ denomination, practicing adult baptism.  Woodmont holds “no creed but Christ” and works to help people mature in faith through studying Scripture, practicing prayer habits, and discovering God’s ways in us and among each other. Though preaching and programs may assist in this process, the deep conviction of this congregation is that “responsibility rests in the pews.”

About the Position
Woodmont is seeking, in its next youth minister, a highly relational pastor called to youth ministry, a critical theologian, and a leader with the ability to effectively execute and manage a ministry with lots of moving parts.  The position includes a generous salary package, commensurate with the requirements and expectations for this role. 

The youth ministry has been on a healthy, growing trajectory, particularly for the last few years. Before leaving, the previous Youth Minister ensured that a number of key, sustainable systems were in place to support the long-term health of this ministry. 

The church has well-appointed, student-friendly facilities.  And on an average week, over 50 middle school and high school youth participate in the life of the church in some way. 

The Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate will have completed seminary and have proven experience in youth ministry.  He or she will be comfortable engaging a wide variety of theological viewpoints and creating a safe place for youth to explore, name, and develop a vocabulary for their growing understanding and experience of God. 

The ideal candidate will need to be an engaging communicator, but need not be a pied piper.  He or she will supervise additional youth staff (currently an assistant youth director and an intern) and have the ability to recruit and train a healthy volunteer team.  The next Youth Minister will communicate well with parents and youth alike, as well as maintain and update the ministry systems required for effective ministry to students from a wide variety of schools and backgrounds.  In addition to leading weekly youth programming and special events, the Youth Minister will contribute to a climate of enthusiasm, collaboration, and vitality in and around the youth ministry.

Director of Youth Ministry (Part-Time), Northminster Presbyterian Church, Evanston, IL

About the Church:

Northminster Presbyterian Church is a vibrant, theologically progressive, neighborhood church in Evanston, Illinois, home to Northwestern University.  An intentionally inclusive congregation, Northminster was an early member of “More Light Presbyterians,” a network of churches seeking the full participation of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people of faith in the life, ministry, and witness of the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Over its almost 90-year history, Northminster has consistently demonstrated the courage and will to address the most thorny social, environmental, or political issues in the light of the teachings of Jesus.  Members frequently find themselves engaged creatively and collaboratively in works of compassion, justice, and service both in the immediate community and the larger global village.

Animated by a joyful spirit, this is a congregation that laughs easily, grieves tenderly, and seeks to worship with openness to the unfolding work of the Spirit.  While deeply committed to its mission and ministry, Northminster is a church that also enjoys not having to take itself too seriously.

About the Position

Northminster is seeking a 20-hour a week Director of Youth Ministries to build upon the healthy momentum set in motion by the previous youth director, who left the position in May of this year.  The next Director of Youth Ministries will oversee a weekly Sunday School program for middle school and high school youth, as well as regular youth fellowship gatherings and special mission and community-building events. This person will be a regular teacher on Sunday mornings with both senior high and junior high youth and will coordinate and collaborate with lay leaders who will help lead both Sunday School and youth events.

The church has a history of a highly attended, very popular youth summer mission trip through the Appalachia Service Project.  This past summer, 100 youth and adults joined Northminster’s group on this trip.

Currently, approximately 25 youth participate regularly in the life and ministry of Northminster.  The church is in need of a Director of Youth Ministries who can deepen the engagement of those youth currently involved as well as develop creative initiative to engage young people currently not involved. 

The Ideal Candidate:

The ideal candidate will bring an enthusiastic ability to naturally connect with teenagers and an ability to comfortably lead discussions about faith and life from a faithful, theologically progressive perspective.  He or she will effectively recruit, develop, and align a volunteer team to serve in the various aspects of the youth ministry.  He or she will bring new ideas to the ministry and will have the ability to organize and update a calendar of events and a youth database.  This position will require the ability to communicate regularly with youth, parents, and leaders and to find creative ways to get above the noise of the avalanche of information families receive daily.   

The ideal candidate will bring a grounded faith, have a bachelor’s degree, be enthusiastic about working as a part of the church’s ministry staff, and have some experience working with young people.  He or she will have the ability not only to engage students as participants in the church’s programs, but to equip and deploy them as partners in mission and ministry in the church and the community.

Christian Formation Internship, Church of the Holy Cross, Murfreesboro, TN

The purpose of the Christian Formation Internship is threefold:

  • to provide Holy Cross children with consistent Christian formation
  • to provide formation for Holy Cross volunteers to help lead Sunday School
  • to provide leadership experience and mentoring to persons called to leading Christian Formation

What will I do as the Holy Cross Christian Formation Intern?

We hope that you will help us grow our Christian Formation program for children. We also hope you will equip some of us to share with you in this ministry. We are looking for someone who will partner with parents and other parishioners who are called to ministry to children and offer formation to them as well.

Holy Cross currently uses Weaving God’s Promises, but we hope one day in the future to shift to a program like Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. However, if you have experience with a more effective program, you are very much encouraged to talk with the Formation Mission Council member and the Vicar.

We also hope you will enjoy being with our youngest children during the service. Some churches call this “nursery care” during the service. However, we at Holy Cross hope this time outside the service will be a time of spiritual formation for our youngest members. Storybook reading, bible song singing, playing community with the doll house, using the labyrinths, even doing a kind of Children’s Church—we hope that this time during the service will enable these young ones to encounter the Good News on their own terms. If you have a vision for what this time could be, please share it with us and let us help you realize it.

Will I be compensated for this ministry?

Holy Cross is committed to this ministry and we show it by offering a $35/week stipend and a mileage reimbursement fund of up to $500. The stipend and mileage reimbursement will be paid on a biweekly basis and you will be designated as having 1099 status.

This internship is available to one person to serve during the church academic year, which runs roughly from September through May, with a few Sunday morning breaks here and there. We expect the intern to be present each Sunday from 8:50am until the end of their time with children during the service, or whatever time will allow him or her to prepare for the morning. We’ll need to make arrangements with parish volunteers for weeks you may need to be away.

This internship may be renewed.

What kind of experience should I have?

We are looking for someone who has had some experience teaching and leading Sunday School.

We hope to find a person who discerns Christian Formation as a vocation in lay or ordained ministry. Perhaps you are committed Christian Formation that you are seeking a position in a church somewhere or ways to contribute to denominational curricula. Maybe you are just simply called to lead children’s Christian Formation and need more experience.

While being Episcopalian is preferred, having a familiarity with liturgical traditions is very helpful to you and to us in this role. Episcopalians have a saying, “Praying is believing.” Having a working knowledge of Episcopal theology, liturgy and pastoral practice is key because these features of our life together is how we form our people over the lifetime of Christian formation.
