The Unitarian Universalist Church of St. Petersburg is seeking a Lead Religious Education Instructor for our religious exploration program for children and youth (ages 4-17).
Primary responsibilities include teaching one Religious Education class per Sunday and helping lead multi-generational components of some Sunday worship services. Other tasks will be in concert with an energetic Faith Development team, who will work with the Instructor to research curricula; develop lesson plans and activities; and coordinate classroom staff and volunteers. Specific tasks can be tailored to meet the strengths and schedule of the Instructor.
This is a part-time position (anticipated 5 hours per week) with potential for expansion as the program develops. Our church is undergoing a period of transition, and we are looking for a flexible, inventive individual to work with us as we kick-start our Faith Development efforts.
The successful applicant will be able to connect with children, youth, and parents; have strong presentation skills and creativity; and demonstrate an understanding of non-creedal religious education. Training or experience in a field related to education is a plus.
Pay rate is $15/hr. Candidate reviews will begin immediately. The position will remain open until filled. Submit resumé, cover letter with teaching philosophy, and references to email@example.com. For more information about UU St. Pete, please visit http://uustpete.org/.
