Christ Church is a vibrant, growing parish located steps from Lake Michigan in Winnetka, Illinois.

The congregation values a faith experience that is rooted in the deep traditions of Episcopal

liturgy and relevant for life today. Christ Church is seeking an innovative and relational Director

of Youth Ministries (DYM) to shepherd youth and their families toward this mission. The ideal

candidate will have a heart for youth and their families, endeavoring to instill a life-long faith

through fellowship, learning, and service.

The DYM will manage all aspects of youth ministry for grades 5-12 including but not limited to

programs and events, outreach and service, worship involvement, volunteer stewardship, family

and youth pastoral care, communications, and visioning for the future. This role will work closely

with the Director of Children’s Ministries as well as other relevant staff (communications, music,

clergy, etc.) and volunteers.

Christ Church desires a DYM with a deep, sustaining personal faith who connects authentically

with young people and endeavors to walk alongside them in spiritual growth. Experience in

teaching or ministry is desired but not required; relational abilities and transferable skills are

more important than previous job titles. A Bachelor’s Degree is required, and the position is

open to lay, ordained or graduating seminarian candidates. A comprehensive compensation

package is available.
