Position Overview: We are searching for a candidate with a profound understanding of United Methodist theology and a desire to share that through inventive use of social media. The ideal candidate will have a strong spiritual perspective to oversee and provide online pastoral guidance and engagement with seekers and digitally connect them with members of The United Methodist Church.
The ultimate goal is to bridge seekers with local congregations and develop a deeper faith engagement in the church.
He/She will provide direction of sacred content geared for 18-34 year olds often disengaged from church by working with writers, study leaders, clergy and agencies of the UMC.
