Job at The Falls Church Episcopal
Director of Youth Ministries
We seek an organized, creative, and playful Director of Youth Ministries to lead and further expand a program with 25 currently active Middle and High Schoolers. This individual will lay the ground work for a wave of students expected to age into Youth Ministry from an active Sunday School with 100+ elementary-age participants. The right candidate will have a clear vision to shape the tone and structure of this nascent program. S/he will work closely with parish leadership to:
-Model our parish ethos of radical welcome to all, regardless of where they are on their faith journey. -Build up the program using the Sustainable Youth Ministry model. -Foster relationships of trust and fellowship between youth, adult volunteers, and him/herself. -Design and implement lock-ins, retreats, and mission trip opportunities. -Equip students to engage the world through the lens of Christ’s love and call to service.
The Director of Youth Ministries will be an integral part of a dynamic, self-starting staff who are passionate about The Falls Church and its history and mission. Our congregation has tripled in size in the last five years, and our staff is growing as well. This position would partner with a new Director of Children and Family Ministries to develop programming to support the spiritual formation of parents and to smoothly bridge the student transition between elementary and middle schools.
The position is envisioned as full time with benefits, but flexibility is possible for the ideal candidate. Necessary Qualifications include a Bachelor’s degree and professional experience in Christian Formation.

The Falls Church Episcopal is simultaneously one of the oldest and youngest congregations in the country – a place with colonial era roots and a new church plant’s ethos in a bustling suburb of Washington, DC. We strive to be a beacon of faith, hope, and love to all, and seek to fulfill God’s will on Earth by gathering believers and seekers, providing sanctuary, ministering with the community, being a force for reconciliation, and serving as a source for transformation in ourselves and the world. Christian Formation for all ages that is rooted in scripture, fellowship, and service is a priority in our vision and at the heart of our parish life. Our congregation has tripled in size in the last 5 years, and we believe what God is doing at The Falls Church is a true resurrection story. Rapid growth is both thrilling and challenging, and we are seeking to expand our staff to respond to the needs of our church and our broader community.
