Director of Christian Education:  Wildwood Presbyterian Church in the northern Chicago suburbs (Grayslake)

You have a passion for education.  You have a passion for your faith.  You dream of so many possibilities if you could live both, together.  Consider realizing the possibilities you have dreamed about by leading Christian Education at Wildwood Presbyterian Church.  Your mission will be to lead our faith community to:

LEARN to connect to God through the stories of our faith, GROW in faith by following Jesus, and LIVE God’s Word through leadership and service

 WPC makes a great commitment to Christian Education, dedicating 35% or our budget to support our Christian Education mission.  As a full time Director, you will touch all ages of youth from toddlers to high school and their families, directing multiple programs including Sunday school classes, Vacation Bible School, and Children’s Worship.  In addition to dedicated middle and high school coordinators and a Nursery supervisor on staff, you will have the support of over 70 volunteer teachers and leaders, and the joy of wrangling them.  You will have a large, beautiful, 16 room CE wing at your disposal, all on the main level.  Our 4 classrooms for young children are surrounded by lovely murals in the hallway.  The 5 classrooms for grade school aged children feature a gathering space we call The Lighthouse with a mural that looks out over the countryside.  Our 4 youth classrooms can be converted to large areas for youth group.  There are 3 adult education rooms, one of which has a reference library.

Our Director of Christian Education must have experience as an educator, and experience in Christian Education as part of a formal program such as Sunday school, focused on youth.  Experience leading others, professional or volunteer, will be an asset.  A background in the Reformed tradition is helpful and preferred.   Our director should also have formal training in education, instruction, curriculum or similar areas equivalent to a 4 year degree. We are open to candidates with a seminary education and those who are ordained ministers. 

In addition to a competitive full time salary, we offer a great earthly benefit program including full medical, dental, life and disability insurance, a retirement plan, and vacation. You will also have standard eternal benefits provided by God’s grace, no pre-existing condition limitations, eternally renewable and non-cancelable.
