First UMC Dallas, a large urban congregation, is seeking its next Director of Youth Ministries. This person will be filled with a passion for Christ and for creating spaces and opportunities for youth to connect with God, to each other and in service to the world.

First UMC Dallas is located in the heart of the Arts District of downtown Dallas, right across the street from the Dallas Museum of Art. Within the context of a traditional church, this is an inclusive and welcoming church that is not afraid to try new ways of connecting with youth.

The next youth minister will be charged with taking some deep dives into faith issues with an intellectually curious group, connecting youth with each other in meaningful ways and connecting youth with service to the world through hands on missions and justice work. This opportunity is for a creative individual who has the vision and courage to try new things.

The candidate we are looking for will:

-          Develop relationships with youth and adults,

-          Be able to articulate, teach, and live out a Wesleyan theology,

-          Classify themselves as creative and an innovator,

-          Have a strong work ethic,

-          Work in relationship with established and successful youth music ministry,

-          Be willing to break traditional understandings of youth ministry in a church context,

-          Have a passion for making God known, and

-          Demonstrate a commitment in the next generation of Christian leaders

The staff at First UMC Dallas creates a fun and invigorating work environment.  We are constantly exploring what it means to be a team and how we might support each other.  The current program and administrative team has been on staff at FirstChurch an average of 8 years. This position reports to the Director of Discipleship.

Salary is commensurate with experience.
