Position: Director of Youth & Family Ministries

Church: St. John's Episcopal Church

Location: Tallahassee, Florida

Church Website


St. John’s is a congregation of about 1,500 members worshiping in the third oldest Episcopal church in the state, within the Diocese of Florida. Our parish was founded as a mission church in 1829. St. John’s current sanctuary, built in 1881, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and stands in downtown Tallahassee, just a few blocks from Florida State University and the state Capitol. St. John’s is an energetic, thriving church with growing membership. We value excellent liturgy for parishioners of all ages; we love music and make it part of weekly worship and fellowship programs; we are seriously committed to outreach; and we constantly work to invite, encourage, and welcome others to join us wherever they are on their spiritual journey.


Nearly 150 children in elementary school or younger and more than 100 youth in grades 6-12 call St. John’s home. However, in recent years due to the pandemic and other transitions, many of these young people never quite got started in our children’s and youth programs. Others were active in these ministries but haven’t consistently returned to worship and fellowship events. We want to bring these young people and their families back to church as well as welcome new ones. Our Director for Youth and Family Ministries will be responsible for coordinating an effective, comprehensive ministry for children, youth, and their families. This will be most successful through shared ministry with a growing team of parent volunteers, collaboration with the clergy team and staff, and with guidance from the Rector.

We seek someone who can help us further develop our thriving community of love, support, and formation for our next generation. We seek an engaging individual to help create community—not do it all themselves—fostering shared leadership and reminding parishioners that part of our baptismal promise is to do all in our power to support today’s young people in their life in Christ. This individual should understand that she or he will be an anchoring presence in the lives of those they serve—learning their names and their stories—not only loving the programs they oversee, but also the young people themselves.
