In the Presbyterian Church, each church is governed by a body of elected ruling elders (or presbyters) called the Session. First Presbyterian Church has twelve ruling elders on Session, each leading or co-leading a particular aspect of the life of the church: Mission, Adult Spiritual Growth, Congregational Life, Worship, Administration, Stewardship, Children’s and Youth Ministry, Personnel, Evangelism, and Clerk of Session.

Children's and Youth Ministry

Position Opening: Director of Children’s and Youth Ministry

The Director of Children’s and Youth Ministry is the staff person primarily responsible for the Christian education and worship experience of children and youth from birth through 12th grade. The Director will report to the Pastor as a supervisor and to the Children’s and Youth Ministry Team (CYMT) for programs.  The position is a full-time (exempt) salaried position. For the complete job description please see FPCA_DCYM_June_2019.pdf.

Take a few moments to check out a PHOTO SLIDESHOW of the Summer 2014 Youth and Middle School Mission Trip. Five middle and high school girls were ready for a mission adventure. The experience depended their faith, broadened their perspective as compared to their own lives, opened their hearts and the girls were inspired by volunteers that were committed to making a difference.

At First Church, we partner with families to guide and nurture children and youth, providing plenty of ways to encourage kids to know and follow Jesus Christ and be faithful members of his church. Learn how we approach spiritual development of children and youth at Children's Ministry and Youth Ministry.
