Church Profile and Job Description

In the center of East Barnard village there is a small church, that has served the surrounding area for over 150 years.  It is historically a non-denominational church community.  In the beginning, different groups, Methodist, Baptists, Universalists, would use the church on a specified week each month, sharing in the upkeep of the building.  Today, we come together to worship during the months of June, July, August and again at Christmas Eve.   We are looking for a minister, who may be active, retired or a seminary student, who would be responsible for worship services each week.  As our children are an important part of our community, we would expect each service to include a children’s sermon.  Other duties would include some sort of adult education or regular fellowship.  In the past this has been in the form of a book discussion or theme-based potluck suppers.  Two or three meetings over the course of the summer would be sufficient.  Visiting of church members who are sick, elderly or in need of support would be expected as well.  The community could foresee the candidate having time for study or research, or possibly having a part-time job in the area.         

Compensation for the three months is $2,500.  Help with obtaining housing would be available, and we would hope that the minister or intern would want to live in or close to our community.

InterReligious Eco-Justice Network (IREJN) a Hartford-based nonprofit that seeks to bring together people of faith around issues of environmental stewardship, seeks a New Haven-based organizer for 8-12 hours a week in the 2004-05 program year.  The pay is excellent (though subject to self-employment tax).  The ideal person for the job
would be knowledgeable about environmental issues (especially renewable energy and environmental justice), able to articulate their connection to faith concerns in an interfaith context, self-directed, organized, with good communication skills.  Tasks include
communication with congregations, networking, event organizing, and education.  This year, a significant network of concerned clergy and lay leaders in congregations throughout the area has been built up, connections have been made with renewable energy vendors who work with the congregations, fundraisers have been held selling fluorescent lightbulbs, and education sessions have informed people about the
connections between faith and environmental stewardship and the benefits of renewable energy.  There is plenty of room for a motivated person to continue this work or expand it in any of a number of directions (retreats for leaders, greater presence at local events,
etc.).  Anticipated start in September or possibly earlier. Interested?  Contact Andrea Cohen-Kiener at andrea@irejn.org or 860- 231-8554.


                                                   BTFO Coordinators 2004
The planning and leadership of the Before the Fall Orientation (BTFO) for new and entering students is served by two student coordinators, selected at this time each year for service through the  summer and early fall.  The Coordinators offer their service to the Divinity School and the entering class of new students as organizers of  the entire BTFO program, scheduled this year for August 24th to 27th.  The work of BTFO Coordinator is a paid position, offering $3,000 in total income for the entire project.  The hours are flexible and the schedule is variable over the course of the project, but the Co-Coordinators should anticipate some work now before the summer
officially begins;  work on campus throughout the summer break (mostly part-time but sometimes full-time, with time for vacations);  work throughout the BTFO program itself;  and some follow-up work after the  new semester begins.   If you are interested in serving as a BTFO Coordinator for 2004,  please indicate your interest to me by the end of the day on Wednesday.






Director of Childrens Ministries Position Available in Greenwich
I graduated from the Div School last year and I am leaving my current position to move to the Washington DC area.  I would love to talk to anyone who might be interested in filling it.  During my year here I have had a chance to lead teacher training sessions, deliver children’s sermons, teach Sunday School classes, preach, lead liturgy, head a committee, participate in staff meetings with the other ministers and generally sink
into the life of the church.  This is a great opportunity to explore church ministry for the not-yet-ordained or for those who are still discerning their calling.   It is a part-time position with a fairly flexible starting date.  Look for a more detailed posting from the church in the next few weeks.  Please e-mail me at <mailto:Dunfee@fpcg.org>Dunfee@fpcg.org or call me at 203-869-8356 if you have any questions.
