Open Position:

Director of Congregational Life

We are seeking a full-time Director of Congregational Life who is eager to foster an environment where families and individuals grow together in faith.

What You'll Do:

As the Director of Congregational Life, you will have the opportunity to:

Lead the development of our educational and spiritual programs for young people in preschool through high school, working with other programming staff in creating a nurturing environment that supports both age-specific learning and multigenerational worship experiences.

Implement programs that enhance fellowship among our church members. By planning social activities and community gatherings, you’ll help deepen relationships within our church family.

Ensure that every guest feels the warmth and acceptance of our community, especially during their first visit. Your strategies will include innovative hospitality efforts that cater to diverse backgrounds and generational needs.

An offering is taken as an act of worship, but as a visitor, please do not feel any pressure to participate. This is for those who are part of the NSUMC community and wish to contribute to our mission.

What We're Looking For:

A leader with a heart for Christian education and a track record of inspiring children and families.

Someone who thrives in thinking creatively to develop engaging programs and events.

A team builder who is skilled in recruiting, motivating, and encouraging volunteers.

A dedicated disciple who embodies a life of ongoing Christian faith and practice.

Join Us

This role is more than a job—it’s a calling. It’s about making a real difference in the lives of our church members and the broader community. By joining our team, you will lead initiatives that support families in their spiritual journeys, create lasting bonds within our church, and welcome newcomers with genuine care.

Our Commitment to You:

We offer a supportive environment where your contributions are valued and your growth is encouraged. This position includes a competitive salary and benefits package, involvement in strategic church planning, and the joy of working in a dynamic and caring community.


  • Vibrant Worship: Join 200 congregants each week  where traditional worship practices and a rich spiritual history engage a modern world.
  • Heart of Community Transition: Located in a neighborhood experiencing a demographic shift from older to younger families, our church embraces both heritage and fresh perspectives, making it a perfect place for intergenerational fellowship.
  • Modern Sanctuary with Historical Roots: While our worship practices are steeped in tradition, they are celebrated in a new sanctuary designed to meet the needs of our growing and diverse community.
  • Engaged and Active Congregation: Our church skews towards an older demographic but is actively engaging younger, professional parents with opportunities for meaningful involvement and spiritual growth.
  • A Place for All Ages: We offer a range of programs that cater to every age group, fostering a deep sense of community and personal connection to faith.
Are you ready to lead with faith and make a lasting impact? We would love to welcome you to our team.
