Job at Episcopal Church in Minnesota

Missioner for Children & Youth Ministry

Job Description

The Episcopal Church in Minnesota, a state-wide network of Episcopal faith communities in Minnesota,
is seeking a full time diocesan Missioner for Children & Youth Ministry.

ECMN has a history of providing transformative formation opportunities for children and youth,
allowing them to take ownership of their own faith by rooting in the story of Jesus, connecting
with one another, and building community across our diocese’s vast geography.

ECMN is seeking a new Minister for Children and Youth who will build on that good work. The
past two years of pandemic have disrupted programming, but have also presented an
opportunity to re-imagine the formation opportunities we have created and to wonder together,
what is God calling us to next? How can we create meaningful formation opportunities that root
and enliven the faith of children and youth, and build local faith communities’ capacity to provide
nourishing, ongoing formation, connection, and community?

Work Environment
As a member of the bishop’s staff, this position requires a strong team player who is aware of
the role the episcopate plays in maintaining the strength and vitality of ECMN. This person must
be able to effectively communicate and interact with a broad range of individuals and
constituencies. This individual must be committed to supporting the mission and ministry of
ECMN in all dimensions of the job. The Office of the Bishop is located in North Minneapolis, and
dedicated office space amongst a team of colleagues is provided.

Essential Duties and Areas of Responsibility
The core responsibility of a staff person in the diocesan office is to nurture vital faith
communities. As such, the work of this position will be to attend to the needs of faith
communities in their ministries with children, youth, and families. This will include being in
relationship with and listening deeply to faith communities, facilitating collaboration between
faith communities, and creating diocesan-wide spaces for multi-generational and family
formation.
