Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries (Full-time, Exempt)
Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields
Philadelphia, PA

About St. Martin’s
The Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields is a large parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania. Founded in 1889 in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, the parish is a vibrant, growing, and increasingly diverse congregation drawn not just from the immediate vicinity but also from many parts of the city, region and from all walks of life. St. Martin’s mission is to welcome all seekers; to worship God in liturgy, music, and prayer; to equip all baptized persons for ministry; and to engage as agents of Christ’s love in the world.

The Holy Eucharist is the heart of the parish. From that heart in the life of Jesus emerge dozens of evolving opportunities for ministry through worship, pastoral care, music, the arts, education, and faith formation for both parishioners and the wider community and city. The parish’s aspirational values are: to be a congregation actively involved in community engagement and work for social justice; to be a place of unconditional welcome and inclusion; to call forth the gifts of its entire people; and to become a racism-free and diverse community that reflects the city in which we exist.

Since last May 2022, the parish has been involved in a period of transition following the departures of its former Rector, Associate Rector, and most recently its Minister to Children, Youth, and Families, who departed in mid-July to enter seminary as a Postulant for Holy Orders.

During the transition, with the experienced leadership of our Interim Rector and the active engagement of our Wardens and Vestry, we continue to experience a call to grow in our capacity for ministry. We are looking for a full-time Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries who will work collaboratively with the Interim Rector, staff, a newly-formed and very active Parents’ Advisory Council, and with the wide support of lay leaders and members across the entire community. The Director will support, and in some cases, reimagine and re-establish a range of sustainable ministries and programs for children and youth of all ages. The Director will guide this process of creative growth.

Full Time

Inquiries, nominations, and applications (current resumes and cover letters) should be directed electronically to:



The CHURCH OF THE REDEEMER in Bryn Mawr, PA is in search for a new Administrator due to the retirement of the incumbent.

Since 1889, The Church of the Redeemer, set on fourteen acres in the center of Bryn Mawr, has been an anchoring institution of the surrounding neighborhood and continues to be a dynamic center for worship, education, performance, community action, and fellowship. Due to the retirement of the incumbent, the Parish is seeking an Administrator to join their collaborative team in maintaining active engagement with parishioners and their families, and act as the principal contact with the parish’s financial institutions, vendor community and regulatory bodies.

The various areas for which she or he will be responsible for on a daily basis require managerial, financial, human resources and plant and facilities experience and expertise. As the senior non-clergy role of a not-for-profit institution, the Administrator is a multi-hat wearer: equally adept at communicating with church custodial staff and parish families as demonstrating financial expertise in Vestry meetings; and equally comfortable working hands-on with the parish Sexton as analyzing monthly budget reports.

A continuing sense of the church as both a structure, as well as a place of being and belonging to hundreds of families is critical. In many ways, the role is a ministerial one, helping in all respects to foster an atmosphere of transparency, communication, mutual respect, and servant leadership that is values-driven, authentic, and of the highest integrity. Ultimately, the Administrator allows The Redeemer to play an integral role in the lives of those it serves; and continue its vision of serving God by welcoming and affirming all who walk through its doors.


Broadly defined, the Administrator is operationally responsible for all finance, facilities and grounds, program support and Parish administration. Accordingly, the successful candidate will be experienced in financial management, including budgetary management, capital expenditure and related planning; and relationship management, including banking, asset management, and audit providers, and comfort with an approximate $2 million budget and a $12 million endowment.

Buildings and Grounds
The Redeemer campus is defined by three major buildings – the church, parish house, and rectory -- and an expansive church yard and cemetery. The church, designed by Frank Burns, was built in 1889 and has undergone several major renovations. The last major renovation was completed in 2010. The administrative offices, meeting spaces, classrooms, and a commercial kitchen are located in the 22,000 square foot parish house, which benefits from a $12.5 million renovation completed in 2021 The rectory serves as a home for the Rector. Additionally, the church owns four residential lots across from the campus on Pennswood Road, for all of which oversight is the Administrator’s responsibility.

Program Support
The church maintains a large number of programs for worship and engagement, including multiple choirs, education opportunities for all ages, community service activities, and fellowship events, and as host for a number of private organizations community services occasions. The related calendars, custodial care, planning and third party contracting for such activities all fall under the Administrator’s purview.

Parish Administration
The Administrator will participate in all staff, Vestry, and Finance committee meetings, will oversee all Safe Church compliance with staff and employees, and be responsible for all other required background checks in accord with local, state, and federal regulation. She or he will also maintain employee files, personnel and staff records, and periodic update of the employee handbook; and such other administrative duties as requested by the Rector.


Minimum of a bachelor’s degree in finance, management, or a related field. Minimum 5-10 years managerial experience, preferably with non-profit institutions.

Excellent, demonstrable personable communication skills, together with characteristics that exhibit honesty, transparency, forthcoming sensitivities, and a concern for every stakeholder.

A quick grasp of position essentials, and the ability to analyze and articulate necessary plant maintenance and upkeep strategies.

Additional attributes include a cheerful, collaborative personality and the ability to respond promptly and graciously to sudden, unforeseeable administrative or building emergencies that may arise across a wide variety of constituents.

COMPENSATION: A competitive salary with superb benefits including a very generous 403 (b program, fully paid health insurance, and four weeks of vacation.
