Director of Youth and Children’s Ministries
The First Presbyterian Church of New Canaan
New Canaan, Connecticut

Interim Director of Youth and Children’s Ministries

With the arrival of new Senior Pastor Scott Herr, an exciting chapter is beginning at First Pres New Canaan. We are seeking a Director of Youth and Children’s Ministries (“CM”) to help write this new chapter. They should be someone who can connect with and nurture our youth and children, guide them in their spiritual growth and create a special place in the church for them, where they will play an active and vitalizing role.

The Director will be part of a warm, welcoming, tight knit team of senior personnel who are pushing the next stage of the church’s vision and agenda. It will take someone with drive and enthusiasm to build out an enticing program of events covering all age ranges; someone with collaboration skills to encourage participation and engage others to help. This is a fantastic role for someone with experience working in small teams, with a focus on youth and children’s programming and excited by the opportunity to take an important leadership role during a period of significant change.

The initial commitment is for one year as “interim,” to be considered for permanent continuance by mutual agreement.
