Job at First Congregational Church
Director of Faith Formation
First Congregational Church of Colorado Springs is searching for a full-time Director of Faith Formation Ministries. The director will cultivate a holistic vision of Christian formation, scaffolding capacity for Christian living from early childhood through the launch into adulthood (high school). The Director will recruit, develop, and organize volunteers from within the congregation in order to foster a greater sense of community and discipleship among all ages. First Congregational Church is an ONA, Just Peace, historical church in downtown Colorado Springs that has a robust OWL ministry and a message of inclusion and love for all people.
We are an Open and Affirming, Just Peace congregation dedicated to offering a spiritual home to all people. We actively encourage people to love, learn and grow with us. Support for diversity in thought, in community, and in all manner of contribution is vital to our interactions with one another.
We believe that in order to deepen in faith, people must have the freedom to explore. We embody a progressive Christianity in which “God is still speaking” and we actively listen to better understand how to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly.” Our openness to wonder is understood both as awe and inquisitiveness.
We believe that the work of the church must influence societal structures and that by our being, we work toward creating a just world. The richness of our community-in-God inspires, transforms, and empowers us to improve the lives of others and work toward the common good. Micah 6:8 serves as our theological touchstone.
