Director of Christian Formation for Children and Families
Sought for Trinity Church

Trinity Episcopal Church, a historic congregation in the heart of Downtown Columbus, is seeking a new Director of Christian Formation. Trinity Church has a long history of championing social justice, sponsoring inter-faith conversations and attending the needs of the under-served in our city. We are seeking an energetic leader to build on our strengths to form a dynamic program for children and youth reflecting the diversity of our Church and broader Columbus community.
In this newly created part-time position, we are seeking a Director with the drive, imagination, and creativity to build on the vision of the Rector and church school leaders. Like other urban churches, Trinity is faced with the challenge of serving families residing in multiple zip codes,  who have children enrolled in many school districts. We believe our Christian Formation program has the potential to enhance even more broadly our own congregation, as well as a wider population of downtown Columbus families current service to a wide and diverse population of Downtown Columbus families and others in the community who share our mission.
For further information, contact Karen Peeler, Trinity Vestry member at
Please talk with friends about this position, and ask interested parties to enquire with either Karen Peeler or Rev. Burnett.  Also, let us know if there are potential candidates we should contact!  We hope to make this hire by early summer!
