Youth Formation Leader, Victoria, MN Posted 11/3/17

Youth Formation Leader
St. Victoria Parish Family
Victoria, Minnesota
Full-Time

St. Victoria Parish Family (Victoria, MN) – a fast-growing, dynamic, suburban Catholic parish of nearly 1,500 families – is seeking a highly-motivated, energetic and enthusiastic applicant to serve as a Youth Formation Leader in our parish. This position is part-time (20-32 hours/week which will be negotiated upon hiring depending on applicant’s desire for hours, with benefits commensurate with hours). Because of the breadth of youth formation at St. Victoria, the person in this role will team with the current youth formation staff to successfully execute this ministry.

The role of youth formation at St. Victoria is to enable the teens of our parish to encounter their faith, the community, and thereby Jesus — so that teens can embody our parish mission to “reach out to all as the face and hands of Jesus Christ.” This encompasses planning, administration, and execution of faith formation and catechesis components, including 6-8th grade formation and 9-10th grade Confirmation, with special emphasis on enabling, mentoring, and retaining small group adult and teen leaders. The role also is responsible for relational ministry programs, and therefore building relationships with teens, parents, and the broader parish. Additionally, this role is responsible for the development and execution of extra-curricular formational ministry programs which may include mission trips, bible studies, retreats, middle school VBS, etc.

The ideal candidate will have three (3) or more years of demonstrated relevant experience working with youth in a parish setting, demonstrated enthusiasm for 6-12th grade teens, demonstrated organizational and marketing skills with excellence-in-execution. Additionally, the ideal candidate will have proven success and experience recruiting, empowering, and inspiring teens, parents, and adult volunteers in a way that engenders trust and confidence. Because a team approach is preeminent at St. Victoria, this person must have a demonstrated track record of collaborating with others. The ideal candidate will also have knowledge of youth formation best practices and be an advocate for implementing new strategies to meet the changing needs of families and teens in our parish. Most importantly, the ideal candidate will have the spiritual and emotional maturity to enable them to witness how God has acted in their life.

To make application for this position, please contact Deacon Ray Ortman at 952-443-2661 or by email to rortman@stvictoria.org. The initial application should consist of a detailed resume and a cover letter which should explain the nature and extent of the applicant’s interest in and experience and training for the position. The initial application also should include a list of professional references and a writing sample (ideally a concise one that communicates to parents or advocating a ministry program). The deadline for applications is December 1, 2017, though applications may be considered earlier on a rolling basis.
