||We are seeking a lay or ordained individual who feels called to be the architect and facilitator of a new model of community based intergenerational, Christian formation ministry. As a member of Grace Church’s program ministry team, the Director of Intergenerational Formation Ministries (“the Director”) will work closely with the Rector, Associate Rector(s), Director of Music Ministries, Head of School, and lay leaders in an array of ministries. Together, they will build and maintain a comprehensive program for the formation of Christian disciples across all ages, offering touchpoints for intergenerational experiences of worship, formation, fellowship, service, and justice work. The Director will be a highly relational person with initiative and a demonstrated ability to work well with people of all ages in an extremely diverse environment. Recruiting, training, and equipping others for ministry in God’s church should be a source of deep joy for the Director.
Grace Episcopal Church in Silver Spring, Maryland feels called to be that “city on a hill” where people of all races and cultures come to build their relationship with God and others. Grace Church is diverse, inclusive, progressive, multi-generational, and bustling with activity. Our staff team is talented, creative, grounded, playful, and we enjoy working together to support ministry at Grace Church. Our ministry centers on offering: a wide range of vibrant worship opportunities, solid program offerings especially focused on Christian formation for all ages, and outreach centered on social and racial justice. We seek to cultivate a new generation of Christians to dismantle the racial hierarchies that pervade our society so that we may become the Beloved Community where toddlers and elders explore their faith together, where youth plan and lead justice ministries, and all formative adults care for the children and youth of the church.
