Wisconsin Avenue Baptist Church (WABC) is located in Northwest Washington, DC at Tenley Circle. We are a small congregation with a big heart filled with the love of God and love of neighbors. We are enthusiastic about what God is doing among us as we grow and find meaningful ways to serve our neighborhood and demonstrate God’s love to everyone. This is an exciting time to be a part of our ministry team.
We are seeking a part-time Children and Youth Minister. This person will have an infectious love for children and youth as well as be energetic, innovative, and creative. Ministry will be done in ways that help cultivate strong relationships, draw people together, bring the younger generation to faith in Jesus, and gradually disciples families in the Christian faith. In addition, the children and youth ministry at WABC is missional in its orientation. This involves actively reaching out to children and youth beyond our church walls to include underserved youth connected to WABC through our longtime ministry partner City Gate.
This position will initially require 12-15 hours of ministry per week, including all day Sunday as well as weekly planning and prep time and monthly ministry team meetings. Hours are otherwise flexible, except for Sundays.
WABC expects this position to develop over time and it may become full-time in the future. Compensation and work hours will be adjusted accordingly.
Ministry candidates should be prepared to make a minimum 1-year commitment to WABC and the church’s children, youth and families. Before starting in this position a background check will be required.
Apply by sending your resume or CV along with personal references, ministry history, and letter of recommendations from your current pastor and a professor at your school. Please submit these electronically via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All submissions will be reviewed and kept in confidence by WABC’s pastoral ministry team.
