Located in downtown Wilmington, NC, First Presbyterian Church is a 1,000 member vibrant, welcoming, multi-generational downtown church with a rich history of faithfulness. We draw our members from three counties, from both sides of the Cape Fear River. Diverse in our backgrounds, we are a bridge-building church that fills our new member classes with many who move into this growing city near the beach. Worship, music, and service to the community are central to our identity. Creativity is valued. We can catch a vision and make it happen.

We are seeking an Associate Pastor for, or a Director of, Youth and Children’s Ministries who is an energetic, compassionate person, one who has a deep knowledge of scripture and the Reformed tradition, who sees God at work in our world today and can help young people do the same. This person will supervise and coordinate these two ministries by engaging, training, and encouraging a network of lay leaders and teachers, and by collaborating with the Children’s CE Committee, Youth CE Committee, senior pastor, and church leaders.

The ideal candidate has at least five years experience in youth ministry, children’s ministry, and/or Christian education. Theological education or a degree in Christian Education is preferred. We are open to both ordained and non-ordained candidates.
