The First Congregational Church of Ridgefield, Connecticut is seeking an Interim Director of Christian Formation to construct a program that helps children and youth grow through stages of emotional, intellectual and spiritual development from the cradle to the point where they can own and embrace their own faith as a living and vibrant expression of their emerging identity. This is a part-time position averaging 20-25 hours a week and reports to the Senior Minister. The position is immediately available. The person selected for the Interim period will have an opportunity to apply for the permanent position. We currently anticipate the Interim position will remain in place for at least one year.
We are located in historic Ridgefield, CT, a beautiful quintessential New England town located 55 miles outside of New York City. Our Church is an active faith community located “by the fountain” on Main Street Ridgefield. We are a vibrant congregation with meaningful programs in Christian ministry, missions, music, outreach and fellowship. We view our Children and Youth programs as a critical part of our church’s mission.
We are currently in an interim period with respect to all of its major program staff. With the crises of the Covid-19 outbreak, the congregation finds itself in an extraordinary position to rethink its ministries and programs across the board, to experiment with new models and adapt to the new world that is forming around us. Re-visioning Christian Formation will be a vital component of this endeavor.
