Director of Youth and Children’s Ministry

Healdsburg Community Church is seeking a new Director of Youth and Children’s Ministry to encourage faith development of children and youth in collaboration with the congregation.

We are drawn to someone who can personally engage in ministry with young people as well as continue to catalyze the congregation to do so. We are excited about God’s work through Outbound, our youth ministry that helps youth engage with God through outdoor adventures.

The Church

HCC is a small, healthy church in the charming town of Healdsburg in Northern California. We care deeply about the youth and children of our church as well as those outside our church. We are a combined church, with roots in both the Methodist and Presbyterian traditions, but are most comfortable within Reformed theology. HCC is a highly relational church, with a relaxed worship style. Sunday worship attendance is 80-100 with an average Sunday School attendance of 10. Our congregation has a love of the outdoors and good food, and fortunately both are in abundance here.
