DIOPA Connections: Job Openings: Youth/Family Ministries


Children, Youth, and Families Ministry Coordinator – Saint
Paul’s Church, Chestnut Hill
, Philadelphia, PA. The CYF (Children, Youth, and Families) Ministry
Coordinator is a full-time, established position with benefits (insurance, and pension in year 2), and
an efficiency apartment on campus if desired. Full-time staff include the Rector, Administrator, Music
Director, and Capital Campaign Facilitator. At Saint Paul’s we believe that children have an innate
sense of the presence of God. Godly Play is a Montessori approach to faith stories, gaining for participants
religious language, and enhancing their spiritual experiences through wonder and play (which is children’s
work). Youth engage in a lifelong journey of questioning, exploring, and discovering together. Confirmation,
Rite 13, service to others, and fellowship all offer an arena to find support and grace in their encounter with
each other and God. The CYF Ministry Coordinator is accountable to the Rector, manages budget
responsibilities, and works collegially with other staff, volunteers, teachers, youth group advisors, and parents.
