Elmhurst Presbyterian Church (EPC) is searching for a Director of Children and Youth Ministries. It is a part time position (25-30 hours).
Our church is located in the western suburbs of Chicago. Our membership is 230, with a worshipping community of 80-100.
EPC is a welcoming community with a diverse membership. Our worship services are lively, filled with music, opportunities to interact and biblically-informed messages.
EPC is at an exciting time in our history and the new Director of Children and Youth Ministries has an opportunity to make a big difference.
We had just begun the process of searching for a new pastor to replace The Reverend Cliff Lyda, who retired in 2015 after 10 years of service to EPC, when we were notified of the retirement of our Director of Children’s Ministry, who led children and youth ministries at EPC for almost two decades.
We’ve embraced this time of transition to focus on what’s most important to our congregation and our community at large:
· Ministries: serving all members of our congregation with a focus on growing programs for youth and children.
· Mission: supporting programs that positively impact the lives of people around the globe and in our community, with a special focus on the PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) homeless shelter located at our facility.
· Connections: creating opportunities for members and the community to attend to each other, as well as a renewed focus on using technology to keep everyone up-to-date (including a new website that is in development now).
Those interested in the position can contact the church at 630-834-7750 or email Rev. Deborah Paton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
