We’re looking for a full-time Associate for Children and Youth who loves children and youth ministry and is ready to holistically envision and oversee the implementation of faith formation programs and activities for the children and youth of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Medina, Washington (www.stthomasmedina.org). St. Thomas is a dynamic, multi-generational church in the heart of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. A welcoming, loving, and faith-seeking church comprised of generous parishioners, the people of St. Thomas share authentic community seeking God’s presence in every corner of their lives by serving friends, neighbors, and the world. While the church is located in Medina (West Bellevue), people living all over the greater Seattle area call this church home.
The successful candidate for this non-ordained position is gifted in relational ministry. S/he has a proven track record of leading a dynamic program shown to developmentally foster faith, deepen spirituality, provide opportunities to be the hands of God in the wider world, and build Christian community. In a church that embraces connections between children, youth, and adults, this Associate will continue to find innovative ways to champion intergenerational activities, build teamwork, and inspire volunteers. S/he will join an enthusiastic pastoral, staff, and administrative team wholeheartedly committed to children, youth, and the congregation.
Qualified candidates will have 3-5 years of professional children and youth ministry experience (or comparable), solid communication and interpersonal skills (relational and empathic), and a strong technology background. St. Thomas is looking for a long-term builder and team player who is ready to be heavily involved in the life and mission of the church and community. The successful candidate will possess a mature and growing Christian faith that can be communicated fluently and includes a deep appreciation for the importance of the sacraments to the life of St. Thomas.
