Job Opportunities @ St. Clare’s
We are so glad that you are considering a position here at St. Clare of Assisi Episcopal Church in Ann Arbor. St. Clare’s is a vibrant community that has always had young people at the heart of its life. We are seeking a Children and Youth Program Coordinator who can help us to continue to create an inclusive community where young people can grow in faith.
The person we seek enjoys building community through planning joyful and welcoming events and programs. We need an excellent written and verbal communicator, someone who can keep track of details independently, and most of all, someone who enjoys working with children and their parents. You don’t need to be an Episcopalian to apply, but a comfort with Christian faith traditions, as well as some experience with and an interest in learning more about the religious development of children and youth will be helpful as well.
This work requires working with both staff and volunteers, taking initiative when needed but also working collaboratively and honoring the ideas of others. You would report to me (the new rector of St. Clare’s) and collaborate with our two other employees and a dedicated group of lay leaders. One of my most closely held personal values is to create a healthy, safe, and meaningful working environment for anyone employed by our congregation. This is also the kind of position that can grow based on the candidate’s particular skills and interests. If you are someone who likes teaching and leading programs for children and youth, we will welcome that and can help you grow in those skills.
You can check out our website at saintclareschurch.org to learn more about our congregation, as well as our unique building, which is shared with Temple Beth Emeth, a Reform Jewish congregation. A couple of things are listed in our job description that are important to highlight: We require employees to be up to date with vaccines and have been very cautious about COVID in our congregation. We also expect the person in this position to be an active part of our commitment to including and affirming the diverse identities of all people.
If you wish to apply for this position, please send a cover letter and resume to The Rev. Anne Clarke at email@example.com with “Children and Youth Program Coordinator Application” in the subject line. Applications will be received until the position is filled. We look forward to hearing from you.
The Rev. Anne Clarke
Rector, St. Clare’s Episcopal Church
