Youth Ministry Job Searches and Postings

November 6, 2014

Frequent questions to the Youth Ministry Office not only include questions about wage and benefit guidelines (see Youth Ministry Salaries), but also about job searches.

Calvary's Ark Engages Across Generations

November 6, 2014

November 6, 2014

Have some of your former youth ministry participants graduated and are now looking to discern their calling in a broader context? I have often found that traveling outside our comfort zones and exploring other cultures offers rich opportunities for discernment. The Episcopal Church offers fantastic opportunities for young adults to provide service and share their […]
