Youth Director – Trinity UCC Canton OH

Job Description

"The best journeys answer questions that in the beginning you didn't even think to ask." Jeff Johnson

Life is tough for young people in Stark County these days. They have questions and experiences their parents never considered. Can you be their guide to create a vision for youth ministry that fosters a joyful, high energy, faithful life journey? Are you someone who can help young people grow in faith with strong parental involvement? Can you nurture a family centered environment where kids are excited to participate?

If you are up to the challenge then we need to talk.

Trinity UCC in Canton Ohio is seeking a Youth Director to mix the social and the spiritual to create an environment where young people feel safe to ask questions and grow in a contemporary and relevant life altering fashion. This position is part-time right now. We are a dynamic Christian community with a vibrant congregation on a journey to rebuild, rejuvenate and rejoice. Our open doors welcome everyone interested in joining our journey to strengthen the community.

Here is what you will do:
Build faith by sharing the gospel with our young people in all kinds of relevant ways, some perhaps mundane and some we might not yet imagine.
Engage and actively lead youth from all ages, races, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds as well as young people who identify as LGBTQ+
Collaborate with parents, the ministry and Christian Ed teams in programming and building intergenerational relationships.

Here is what you need:
The right person for this journey is patient, easy to talk to with demonstrated ability to engage with people of all ages and establish long term relationships. This is critical.
Experience working with young people and faith leadership with a strong faith foundation.
Must be aware of social issues, particularly comfortable with all kinds of diversity including LGBTQ+ and race issues.
Strong verbal communication skills. You need to know what to say and how to say it.
Strong planning and organization skills too. Things need to get done on time so you have to be detail oriented.
Obviously you must have strong social media communication skills to connect with and target young people.

Interested? Please send me an email to [email protected] with a resume and a note in less than 300 words describing your top accomplishment, your first 100 days on the job, and why you are a great fit. We need to talk.
