The successful applicant will have a passionate love for God and a passionate love for young people. The position of youth coordinator is primarily relational. It is essential that the youth coordinator does not put a stronger emphasis on programming than on relationships. Consequently, 80% of the job does not happen in the office. It is the Youth Ministry Coordinator’s job to be where the youth are.
The successful applicant will be a dynamic person of prayer, who encourages others to encounter the presence of Christ. He/she will have a vision for youth ministry, and the ability to inspire the parishes to catch that vision.
Youth ministry in the City of Lethbridge is a joint venture between the Parishes of All Saints and St. Martha’s without regard to parish boundaries. We seek to build a Catholic culture where young people from elementary through high school and beyond are welcomed, encouraged, and nurtured in their relationship with Jesus and His Church.
In addition to the above attributes, the successful applicant will ideally have some background in music and liturgy. Previous youth ministry experience would be an advantage, and the ability to work as a team with another Youth Ministry Coordinator. More specific areas of responsibility will be discussed and agreed upon before the commencement of employment.
