 Immediate Opening for a Director of Teen Ministries 

We are seeking YOU: a dynamic, fun-loving, team player passionate about teens and leading teen ministry who also wants to bring your other gifts and talents to Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, located in Granite Bay, CA. WE are a generous mid-sized, ELCA Lutheran multi-generational family dedicated to growing disciples by sharing God’s love. Although our teen ministry only demands 30 hours at this time we are looking for someone with other talents so that we can expand this position to full time. So, how can you fill this full-time position with other skills as well? Do you lead great worship, create awesome graphics, or organize communications well? Maybe you have other job-related skills to suggest that we hire you for? If you’re looking for a calling to teen ministry with a great ministry team that commits to you and your family than we hope you’ll apply.
