Associate for Youth and Families
First Presbyterian Church, Kalamazoo
Associate for Youth and Families (Non-Ordained)
First Presbyterian Church Kalamazoo, a PC(USA) congregation in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan, is seeking an energetic, outside-the-box thinker, who thrives in building volunteer teams and systems to empower children and youth to live out a vibrant life of faith. This is a part-time role, approximately 20 hours per week, working closely with the Associate Pastor to serve children, youth, and their families.
The person we are seeking feels called to spiritually develop young people and longs to help them see that they belong as they are! The Associate for Youth and Families must love engaging youth and their families regardless of race, class, ability, sexual orientation and gender identity. They must be willing to struggle in community with life’s tough questions where there is more mystery than known answers and offer life-giving theology rooted in the ultimate truth that God is love (1 John 4:16). We seek someone who is independently motivated, team oriented, loyal and knows how to engage others in FUN!
