First UCC, Quakertown seeks a person called, gifted, and trained to work with youth, young adults, and modern worship. Deep faith in Jesus Christ as savior, teacher, and example is vital.

We prefer someone who is recently graduated, available full time, and who, either now or in the future, desires to seek ordination. There is a great opportunity to grow and create in a supportive, encouraging, and exciting environment.

Theologically, we are Bible centered with a strong commitment to grow in faith and numbers as Jesus commissioned us. We take a moderate position on areas of strong social debate, we discourage political advocacy, and we honor diverse opinions among individuals. In preaching, teaching, and practice we emphasize love, faith, service, and Christ-like behavior - attributes that churches are uniquely called upon to proclaim and provide. Please visit our web site, www.firstucc.net, for more detailed information.

We have about 450 members with 145 in our Sunday worship. We have a central location in Quakertown, one block from the high school, and excellent physical facilities. We have a husband and wife as senior co-pastors, a full time administrative assistant, and 11 part time staff.

Our youth group, 7th through 12th grade, has about a dozen active members and an equal number of sometimes-participating members. Responsibilities for youth will include regular group meetings, Christian teaching, mission trips, retreats, bonding, planning, individual growth in faith and practice, and spiritual guidance during the transition from youth into adulthood.
Responsibilities for young adults will include creating programs for college students, those beginning careers, and those beginning families. This person will be able to initiate such programs, create small groups, and provide spiritual guidance during this time of challenge and transition into adult roles.

We have begun a monthly Saturday worship service that is informal, intimate, modern, and interactive. The music is upbeat and contemporary. Responsibility in this area will be to help us increase frequency to every Saturday and to initiate similar worship at other times. This person will be able to be a worship leader and will feel a strong call to bring in the young and the unchurched. Ability to participate in music and to use technology are strong pluses.

If you see a possible fit with your goals, we would very much like to be in contact with you. Give us a call or send an e-mail.
