St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (, a historic and well-established, 870-member parish in downtown Richmond, VA, is seeking an energetic and creative full-time Youth Ministerto serve teens in grades 6 – 12. St. Paul's lies in the heart of downtown Richmond, across from Capitol Square. Built in 1845, it is among the most beautiful and historic churches in Virginia. The church celebrates three services on Sunday mornings. Parishioners are drawn from all over greater Richmond and from all walks of life, including the city's growing downtown residential neighborhoods. St. Paul's is famed for its strong outreach programs, and also serves as a vital community and worship center during the week.


Youth are at the center of church life, and are continually nurtured and challenged in a shared and open-minded journey of faith in Christ. The youth and the church are committed to The Journey to Adulthoodprogram which is typically divided into three sections: Rite-13 for 6th - 8th graders; Journey to Adulthood (J2A) for 9th - 10th graders; and Young Adults in the Church (YAC) for 11th - 12th graders. St. Paul's youth build deep and lasting relationships with one another and their mentors; actively serve their community; and travel across the nation and the world to perform mission work and learn new perspectives. The youth meet each Sunday morning in the Youth Center. In addition, youth meet one Sunday evening each month to have fun and build community, participate in church events and service activities, and plan and prepare for outreach and mission experiences.


The Youth Minister will be responsible for leading a program that will inspire and launch discipleship for youth, commitment and trust with parents, training and equipping for volunteers, and an outward focus on meeting the needs of the community near and far. Building one-on-one relationships with students is a high priority for this position. Collaboration with the Youth Ministry Team is also critical as St. Paul seeks to develop and maintain systems and structures that will serve the youth and families for many years to come.


Qualifications for this position include:

  • A heart for young people
  • A commitment to building lasting relationships with and among youth
  • A willingness to work collaboratively with clergy, staff, and parishioners
  • An ability to teach youth to follow Christ's example in loving service to others and each other

  • A minimum of a Bachelor's degree preferred
  • Parish youth ministry experience, particularly with the Journey To Adulthood curriculum preferred
  • Experience coordinating and executing mission trips with young people
