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

Trinity Episcopal Church, an 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 responding to the underserved 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 many other urban churches, Trinity is faced with the challenge of serving families residing in multiple zip codes with 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.
