Director of Discipleship and Service

Webster Hills United Methodist Church is seeking a full-time Director of Discipleship and Service who can join us in the ongoing revitalization of our congregation. We are a mid-size church located in suburban St. Louis that is focused on creating a culture of connecting, growing and serving. We are witnessing exciting growth in the number of young families who are becoming part of our faith community. 

We are looking for that person who can enthusiastically embrace a wide sweep of responsibilities and quickly become established as a passionate and engaging leader.  The role includes discipling ministries for all ages and will include oversight of part-time staff members (coordinators for kids, youth and adults).  We will ask this person to work to add to our roster of small groups for all ages, re-establish a strong youth ministry, guide our kids ministry toward significant growth and draw people onto our Discipleship Pathway. Because service is a key aspect of discipleship, this person will lead in the establishment of mission and service opportunities for all age groups. 

Our Director of Discipleship must be skilled in the practice of inviting others to join in ministry and have a proven track record of inviting and engaging volunteers. We prefer someone with a degree in theology or some theological study.  However, a person who can demonstrate experience in and knowledge of the field of discipleship ministry may also be best candidate for this position.
