Director of Children's and Family Ministries
The Falls Church Episcopal

The Falls Church Episcopal is simultaneously one of the oldest and youngest congregations in the country – a place with colonial era roots and a new church plant’s ethos in a bustling suburb of Washington, DC. We strive to be a beacon of faith, hope, and love to all, and seek to fulfill God’s will on Earth by gathering believers and seekers, providing sanctuary, ministering with the community, being a force for reconciliation, and serving as a source for transformation in ourselves and the world. Christian Formation for all ages that is rooted in scripture, fellowship, and service is a priority in our vision and at the heart of our parish life. We seek an organized, innovative, and energetic Director of Children’s and Family Ministries to lead and further expand an existing Godly Play-based program with more than 100 children between the ages of 3 and 5th grade. S/he will work closely with parish leadership to: • Model our parish ethos of radical welcome to all, regardless of where they are on their faith journey. • Expand program year offerings for children and their parents beyond Sunday mornings. • Discern calls and equip adult leaders to assist in Children’s Ministries using a sustainable model. • Steward and grow the relationship between the parish and our Day School of 180 preschool children. The Director of Children’s and Family Ministries will be an integral part of a dynamic, self-starting staff who are passionate about The Falls Church and its history and mission. Our congregation has tripled in size in the last five years, and our staff is growing as well. This position would partner with a new Director of Youth Ministries to develop programming to support the spiritual formation of parents and to smoothly bridge the student transition between elementary and middle schools.
