The First Unitarian Universalist Society in Newton (FUUSN) seeks
a full-time religious educator to lead and inspire our active,
diverse Lifespan Religious Education Program. As a leader of our
congregation, the Director of Lifespan Religious Education will
work collaboratively with our Senior Minister, Music Director,
and staff in developing worship and integrating religious
education into worship activities, and administering the program.
The Director provides leadership on all aspects of FUUSN’s
religious education programming. With primary focus on the
management, growth, and evolution of our Lifespan Religious
Education Program, both within FUUSN and within the larger
community, the Director, in conjunction with the Senior Minister,
will also provide oversight and guidance in the spiritual
development of children, youth, and adults.
In recent years our congregation has been expanding its
understanding of Lifespan Religious Education and the importance
of connections across ages. The Youth Ministry has grown deeper,
and a task force recently explored the status and desires of
Adult Faith Development at FUUSN. Families are engaged and the
religious education programs are both healthy and open to new
ideas. We seek a leader who will continue this process, nurturing
a LRE Program that intentionally builds community, while
supporting the development of UU identity and spiritual
growth. This position requires strong interpersonal skills,
organization, program management, volunteer coordination, and the
ability to work well with people of all ages. We expect qualified
candidates to have experience in religious education, knowledge
of education principles and practices, and a strong understanding
of and commitment to UU principles. Experience in recruiting,
cultivating, and inspiring volunteers is necessary to be
successful in this position.
