Westside UU Church is a congregation of approximately 100 members on the western side of Knoxville, TN. Our RE program includes approximately 20 children and 10 youth, as well as a team of 5-7 volunteers. The DRE works closely with the Religious Education Committee to create programs and curriculum for children and youth, and is supervised by the Minister. He or she will lead a team of volunteer teachers, oversee curriculum and resource materials, administer the RE budget, and engage with other church leaders and committees to integrate children and youth into the life of the church. She or he will also help to create periodic multigenerational worship services. Necessary skills include: the ability to communicate well with children, youth, and families; volunteer support and management; good organizational skills; the ability to collaborate with the larger church community; knowledge of children's developmental stages; and an enthusiasm for education.
Experience with Religious Education is preferred, but not required. Experience in UU communities, particularly UU Religious Education is preferred.
