Children and Youth Ministries Leader

St. Andrew's Episcopal Church

Job Description

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church is a vibrant and welcoming church in Greensboro, NC, seeking a part-time Children and Youth Ministries Leader to nurture, grow, and support the faith of our children and youth.


We believe that children and youth are not just the church of the future, they are the church now. We are looking for someone with a heart for sharing the Good News of God in Christ who is engaged in their current faith community, who enjoys spending time with children and youth, and who can communicate clearly with parents and volunteers. We don't have all the answers, and we don't expect you to either. What we do know is that God loves us and calls us to love one another. This could be an excellent opportunity for a college or graduate student or young adult who is joyful, creative, and committed to guiding children and youth in their faith formation. 


Primary Responsibilities

  • Developing relationships with children, youth, families, and other congregants;
  • Directing, preparing for, and participating in children’s Sunday morning programming and special events; 
  • Leading our EYC group activities;
  • Communicating with families through various digital platforms and in person; and
  • Other duties as assigned to benefit the growth and maintenance of our family ministries.


Our children and youth ministries leader will participate in the congregational life at St. Andrew’s and will attend Sunday morning worship on a regular basis and EYC on Sunday evenings. We are willing to negotiate on summer hours or the possibility of a significant summer break. We need someone for our entire program year, but we will work with the right person to make it beneficial for both parties. 


Time Commitment and Compensation

  • Weekly: Flexible schedule with the exception of Sundays during the program year
  • Program Year (September–May): Quarter time (10-15 hours/week)
  • Summer Hours: Negotiable with the exception of summer programming
  • Summer Programming: planning and leading EYC mission trip to Glory Ridge and one week of pre–program year planning in August.


Note: We are aware that there are different skill sets involved in working with children and with youth. While we would prefer to have one person to build relationships with all our families, we are open to the possibility of creating separate positions. If you are interested in working with EYC-aged youth OR children and families but understand that your gifts are not in both ministries, you are welcome to send us your resume.


This leader will work closely with our Rector and leadership teams. Compensation for this position will be determined based on similar positions in the Episcopal Church. Particular consideration will be given to applicants with prior experience in children’s or youth ministry or communication and event planning skills.


Please submit your letter of interest, resume and at least one letter of recommendation to the Rev. Ginny Bain Inman at [email protected]
