Associate Pastor
Green's Farms Church
Full time
Westport, CT USA

THE CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH OF GREEN’S FARMS, WESTPORT, CT

JOB DESCRIPTION FOR ASSOCIATE MINISTER FOR YOUTH

The Congregational Church of Green’s Farms is seeking an Associate Minister for Youth who, with deep care, compassion and warmth, will engage its young people by sharing their faith in the God revealed in Jesus Christ, creating opportunities for young people to experience God’s transforming love in the Christian community and empowering them to carry God’s love beyond the walls of the church.  In addition to a strong primary focus on Youth, this role, if desired, offers the unique opportunity for expanded independent ministry career development based on self-defined personal passion areas. With the guidance of a well-established, experienced pastoral staff, on-going support and development would allow for the possibility of assuming larger duties and expanded learning within our ministry.

Founded in 1711, Green’s Farms Church (GFC) has been at the heart of the Westport community for more than 300 years. From our modest start as Westport’s first place of worship and local government, to our current commitment to growing disciples who make a difference with the families and youth of Fairfield County, GFC has many stories to tell. Our dynamic and welcoming membership is comprised of approximately 600 people, with average weekly attendance of about 200-250 including both adult and Sunday School attendees. Church members are active participants in the life of the local community. We enjoy a highly-regarded music program, well-attended educational enrichment programs for adults and youth, social events, and vibrant outreach programs including involvement at local transitional shelters, and hands-on service work that enriches dozens of community groups.

A member congregation of the United Church of Christ, GFC takes to heart Christ’s call to be a place of “extravagant welcome and radical hospitality.” We provide multiple ministries for children, youth and adults, numerous opportunities for worship, spiritual growth and exploration, and host several 12-step support groups, a Nursery School, and Daycare. Drawn from a variety of backgrounds, ages and experiences, what holds the people of GFC together is a desire to discover the God revealed in Jesus Christ and practice faith as a way of life.

Our Vision:  We are a church on a hill, glowing so brightly with the light of God's love that we shine like a beacon, guiding seekers to come inside where their souls are nourished and transformed, growing closer to God. We are a faith family of warm welcome, respectful acceptance, shared joy and tender compassion. We embody Christ's hope, love and service wherever we go. – GFC Vision Statement, June 2014

For more information on GFC, see our website, www.greensfarmschurch.org

PURPOSE

Responsibilities are aligned with our Vision and programs are filtered against our two strategic initiatives where we find opportunities for ‘Deepening Community’ and ‘Discovering Discipleship’.
