Position Opening:
Leader of Children and Youth Programming

We are looking for a youthful and energetic person to lead the development and delivery of our Programming for children and youth ages 4-14 this coming year. Program delivery will be done initially via Zoom until we are able to hold in-person classes.


At Southminster United Church we offer a caring community which warmly welcomes people of differing ages, abilities, sexual orientations, income levels, religious backgrounds and cultures. We care deeply about justice for all, including Indigenous Reconciliation, LGBTQ rights, Care for our Environment and Economic Justice and wish to share these values with our children.


We wish to create a place where our young people feel supported and valued, where they can explore the Christian faith and express it in action.


We have a small, dynamic group of children which will be taught together. Our hope is that the youth will be supported in the development of leadership skills and become mentors for the younger children.


The position averages 8 hours a week for 10 months a year (September to June). Salary is in the $15-20 an hour range, depending on experience.
