Role in Position Search:   Hiring Manager (Coordinator Godly Play Program)

Ministry Opportunity Description

Hiring 1-2 lead Godly Play teachers (“Story Tellers”) for a weekly Sunday School program for children pre-K – 4th grade. Children are grouped by age into 3 separate classrooms of 10-15 . Classes are 50 minutes, 3 weekends per month.

The Godly Play method mirrors the flow of the Christian Liturgy and is intended to develop children’s spirituality. The Story Teller tells a bible story (from memory) using props and figurines. (The Story Teller will be provided with materials that set out the bible story and how the props are to be used.) The children are then encouraged to reflect on the story using art or play materials. Lastly, they reassemble for a simple “feast” and share goings on in their lives.

Applicants must have a demonstrated interest in religious education, with any kind of classroom teaching experience a plus. Story Tellers are required to attend a day-long training session in the Godly Play method. In addition, they will be expected to spend 2-3 hours per week preparing and memorizing the stories.

Term: For the School Year September 15, 2013 – May 25, 2014.

Job Hours: 3-4 Sundays per week, 9:30 – 11:30AM (no Sunday School the first Sunday of every month), plus 2-3 hours per week for preparation (paid) and 1-Day training in September.

Compensation: $20/per hour, including 2 hours teaching on Sunday and 3 weekly hours preparation. Attendance in day-long (8 hour) training also paid at $20/hour.
