St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church in Dunwoody is Seeking a Full-Time Director of Children, Youth and Family Ministries
We emerged from the pandemic with a renewed desire to expand our engagement with younger members and seekers. Parish-wide surveys, townhall meetings and numerous small gatherings over several months confirmed the Parish’s commitment to this effort and the expansion of our staff to support it.

Yes, we want to encourage Children, Youth and Families to come on Sundays! Most every parish does. But what we are really after is preparing them to be the Church in the world, wherever God plants them, having experienced the love, joy, and support of our Episcopal community of faith. We are not looking for a professional to do this work for the Parish! Rather, we desire someone who is passionate, innovative, and experienced, preferably ordained, who can help raise up the entire Parish to participate in growing our ministry among Children, Youth and Families.

The Director for Children, Youth and Families will report to and collaborate closely with the Rector as a partner in ministry, especially in the development of offerings for Children, Youth and Families. Other opportunities for a clergy person include preaching and presiding regularly and offering pastoral care to parishioners and our ministry partners.

Lay applicants are also encouraged. We require applicants who are steeped in the liturgical tradition and are confirmed Episcopalians. We are looking for a demonstrated passion for children, youth and families in their faith journeys.

We expect the Director to commit to this full-time position for at least 3 years. Salary and benefits are subject to diocesan guidelines for clergy and lay persons, and are negotiable based upon experience.

Submit your resume to Parish Manager Lori Kent. We plan to interview candidates in May and call our new Director in June.

Full Position Description
Who we are
All Saints’ Episcopal Church, a large, inclusive, theologically progressive and welcoming community of faith in the heart of Atlanta, distinguished by its long-standing commitment to an inclusive and excellent music program for children and youth.

Who we are looking for
We seek a Director of Children and Youth Music who will bring their own gifts and experience to the role, be excited to join a highly successful program and expand our ministry to children and youth through the gift of music. We are looking for: a natural networker, who will build relationships in schools and churches across metro-Atlanta; a personable recruiter, who will continue to grow our choirs; a talented musician, who will bring the best out of our children and youth by holding them to a high standard; a warm personality, who will know how to relate well to children and youth of all ages and equally to their families and to the wider church community; and a person of faith who will honor the theological diversity of all our children, youth and families.

Who and what you would lead
Our new Director of Children and Youth Music will direct and lead a program that has grown considerably over the past 25 years. There is an enthusiastic population of singers of all ages, whose families are committed to the success and vibrancy of our music life and our life as a community. We see children and youth as integral to the life of our church and they are active in worship, in service, in our parish life and through four choral ensembles (Cherub (Pre-K-K), Primary (1st-2nd grade), Junior (3rd-6th grade), Youth (7th-12th grade)) and two handbell choirs (Junior Bells (3rd-6th), Youth Handbells (7th-12th grade)). We are currently in a re-building phase post-pandemic, and this year have 99 children and youth across our six choirs. Pre-pandemic, our total count was 151 children and youth. The Director of Children and Youth Music oversees all the program and directs each ensemble. The Director directs an annual children’s musical, leads a 6th grade choir trip, a Youth Choir trip, and collaborates with the Director of Children’s Ministry in helping to lead Vacation Bible School.

Our vision
Our vision for children and youth music at All Saints’ is to build upon this array of music opportunities such that they might be open to children of all musical abilities and backgrounds. We value music in the lives of our children and youth as a way to glorify God and grow in relationship, and we wish to draw the best out of every child within a culture that is non-competitive and prizes the whole community over individual accolades or performance. We foster a safe environment for all children and youth of all backgrounds and identities to be accepted and celebrated. We imagine further expansion of our music programs for children and youth potentially to encompass summer music camps, further integration of our children and youth choirs into Sunday worship, the establishment of a new service for very young children and their families, and opportunities for music education for all children and youth including those who may not ordinarily have access to quality music education from across the city of Atlanta. Our desire is to call a new Director of Children and Youth Music to All Saints’ who will seek to build on a strong foundation and be ambitious for us to expand the ways by which music has the power to build community and deepen faith.

The music team
The Director of Children and Youth Music is a member of a talented music department at All Saints’, serving alongside a full-time Associate Director of Music, and a full-time Director of Music who oversees all aspects of music at All Saints’ and to whom the Director of Children and Youth Music reports. The Director of Children and Youth Music oversees a professional accompanist who plays for Wednesday and Sunday choir rehearsals, assists in handbell rehearsals, and accompanies on Sundays when one of the Children and Youth Choirs is singing during worship as well as on other occasions throughout the church year.

Other colleagues
The Director of Children and Youth Music also works closely with our Director of Children’s Ministry and our Youth Director, serving as part of the Formation staff team as well as the Music staff team. Beyond these two teams, the Director of Children and Youth Music is part of a 30-person gifted and committed staff community, and plays a full part in liturgical planning, church event planning and other work with fellow staff in the life of a highly active church community. All of our staff at All Saints’ enjoy a flexible work place where we seek to balance our professional commitments with our first vocations to family and home life. Most staff work one day from home each week, and our work culture is grounded in mutual trust and respect.

Resources
The resources made available to the Director of Children and Youth Music include: a large, dedicated rehearsal space for vocal choirs and handbells and a dedicated office; a choral library of over 700 children and youth anthems (unison/2pt/SAB/SABT); two acoustic pianos for rehearsal; one digital piano; 4 sets of handbells (2 sets of Malmark handbells, 1 set of Schulmerich handbells, 1 set of Malmark choir chimes); and various other instruments and percussion (multiple djembes of various sizes, a bass xylophone, various barred instruments, conga, bongos, hand drums, etc.). There is also an annual budget for Children and Youth Music to cover purchases of choral music, handbell music, teaching supplies, robe replacement, gift Bibles and hymnals, crosses, Youth Choir trips, instrumental maintenance and tuning, dinners, treats and other costs associated with the program.

Requirements
Applicants will possess at least five years of experience as a music educator in either a church, school or some other equivalent setting. Applicants will also be highly proficient in teaching singing, and comfortable on the piano in order to lead sectional rehearsals.

The Church of The Ascension in Cartersville is Seeking a Director of Music

DIRECTOR OF MUSIC

Job Description

The Episcopal Church of the Ascension was founded in 1845 and has a long history of liturgy and music. The church is a part of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta and is in Cartersville, GA, which is about forty-five minutes outside Atlanta. Our Canterbury Choir is currently an all-adult ensemble of 20 singers. Our St. Cecilia Choir is 13 members ranging from 7-17 and has a volunteer director.
