At Trinity, we seek to live out our vision of “Growing in love and service through relationships with God and community.” Trinity is an official Welcoming Congregation: Our welcome knows no boundaries of age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation/ identity, economic condition, physical or mental ability. We believe that everyone is of sacred worth and not one man or woman is greater than another. We cooperate in ministry with other local churches and groups of God’s people as we participate in the worldwide mission of Christ. We offer opportunities to worship, learn, fellowship, and serve. We are a downtown congregation committed to our local community.

Job Description

A half-time (20 hours/ week) position in Young Adult (roughly ages 25-35) Community Outreach.

Primary duties associated with this position include:

  • Building on the existing ministries and developing leadership skills among current young adults within the church
  • Attending worship and ministry staff meetings
  • Developing a social media and communications strategy

Trinity is located in Lafayette, Indiana, across the river from Purdue University. Graduate and Ph.D. students and young urban professionals are a growing demographic within our neighborhood. In recent years, Trinity has attracted more young adults. We are committed to this ministry opportunity in a community where there are no other theologically progressive congregations focused on this demographic. We have redesigned our ministry space, making it attractive for young adult gatherings. This position includes funds for professional development. It offers the opportunity to work creatively and collaboratively with a strong ministry staff.
