We have many families with children and youth of all ages active in the parish.

The high school group also is hungry for more opportunity for Bible study and discipleship.

We seek a full time youth minister who will address the needs mentioned above and develop thriving programs for junior high and for senior high youth. The youth minister would also be responsible for teaching (or arranging for a teacher for) Confirmation and Sunday School for the youth. We would like to see the development of a summer mission trip as well. Salary is competitive and dependent on experience and health insurance and pension are provided. We seek someone who is able to actively engage with the youth and be a strong spiritual leader among that community.
