Children and Youth Ministries (PT) Coordinator – Episcopal News Service

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd (“the Church”) recognizes that even the smallest child is already in a relationship with Jesus, the Good Shepherd, and that children and young people all have profound spiritual gifts given by God. Beginning with Godly Play, the Church seeks to ignite the hearts and minds of young people with the mystery, wonder, and love of God, respecting each child’s spiritual journey while strengthening them individually and in community so that they become the hands and the heart of Christ in the world. The Church is currently looking for an energetic and creative individual to build on the existing program structure and draw children and youth into greater engagement! We seek growth!
