Job Description – Director of Religious Education

First Parish in Lincoln, MA seeks an experienced Interim Youth Religious Education Director for 24 hours a week beginning September 2022 through mid-June 2023.

As FPL enthusiastically prepares to welcome new Senior Ministers in the fall, we also need a skilled youth educator to manage our existing K-12 program. An Interim Youth Religious Education Director will allow our settled ministers time to know us and time to help us envision RE for this generation of busy children and adolescents.

The Interim Youth Religious Education Director will manage our K-12 program as well as assist leadership in assessing the current program for strengths and “growing edges” with an eye to determine a course of action going forward.  The interim DRE will be experienced at working with parents, leadership and stakeholders to assess the RE program, any underlying issues or conflicts that need to be processed, and support church leaders as they identify the key issues and priorities which need to be addressed before a permanent person is hired into this role.

Day-to-day operation of our K-12 programs includes weekly spiritual exploration classes, holiday services and OWL (lifespan sexuality training). Opportunities to deliver Time for All Ages (messages from the pulpit oriented toward children) are encouraged. The ideal candidate brings skills that will help staff and volunteers lay the foundation for recruitment of a permanent candidate to fill FPL’s youth education needs.

FPL is a theologically diverse community affiliated with both the Unitarian Universalist and Congregational traditions. Together we build community, promote spiritual growth and connection, pursue social justice and work to preserve our living earth.
