Riverside UMC is looking for a Youth Director!  

The overall responsibilities for the position involve working as a team member with clergy, staff, & volunteers in carrying out the mission of the church.  The person hired would work with education/youth ministry team committee members to prayerfully discuss, develop, & implement initiatives for programming involving ministry with & for youth in this church and community.  They would engage with young children as well as Jr. and Sr. High youth.  The goal is to support them and to build relationships with them - and between them and their peers – and help these children/youth/young adults build relationships with supportive adults.  This new hire would facilitate the youth in the development of having a strong, active Christian faith through a connection to their local community and through scheduled activities and through mission/service programs, leadership, and through Christian study opportunities.  This person would be asked to invest in relationships with adults, as well - including with families.  The goal is to train and equip these adults in faith practices and in being involved with relationships and programming, and so they can be growing in their own faith along with the children, youth, and young adults in their lives.


The position is budgeted for up to 15 hours per week – but a person applying would not be required to work more than a minimum of 3 or 4 hours per week if that is all the time they’d have available.  Some of the youth director’s time would be spent in mentoring conversations with the clergy, in planning and communication work to accomplish the programming, and in being with youth and children in both virtual – and when possible – in-person ways.  Skills in zooming, texting, and other forms of social media are a must – in order to connect with our young people.  Being a curious and energetic person would be very helpful – someone willing to learn and grow!
