Discipleship Leader for Children and Youth
Forest Hills United Methodist Church (FHUMC) is seeking a dynamic leader to support our mission:
With God’s love and guidance, we will increase hope and healing in our communities.
We are a medium-size United Methodist church located in the suburbs of Nashville, TN undergoing a transformation process. In recent years, our main focus has been to move from a membership model of church (where the church exists to offer programs which meet the needs of members) to a discipleship model of church (where the church equips disciples to make disciples for the transformation of the world). To learn more about where we’ve been, view this short video from 2019 Church Council Chair Peter Cassidy. https://vimeo.com/376632157?mc_cid=aff9d54ca2&mc_eid=3efaf931f4
In February 2020, we launched our Discipleship Pathway, which is the new model for intentional discipleship at Forest Hills. Please see the attached brochure and Disciple Growth Guide to read more about The Pathway and how it touches every aspect of our life together as disciples of Jesus.
MAJOR PURPOSE: The Discipleship Leader for Children and Youth will design and oversee a discipleship m inistry, using FHUMC’s Discipleship Pathway, and in collaboration with the Community Outreach and Discipleship Leader, to help children and youth embrace a lifelong commitment of following Jesus. An ideal candidate is a joyful, detail-oriented, collaborative leader who has experience organizing and supporting teams within a sustainable, intergenerational model of ministry and has a heart to serve actively with children and youth. They would be a hands-on minister who also equips and empowers others.
