Reports to/Receives Direction From:   Director of Ongoing Formation and Discipleship                                            

Resource Person to:                    Parish and school staff, parishioners, and volunteers

This position is full time with benefits

Hours Hired to Work:                            40 hours per week, 12 months

Purpose of Position 

This position works collaboratively as part of the Formation Staff to engage, evangelize, and equip our Saint Bartholomew’s community to actively live the Gospel in their daily lives and bring others to Christ. Central to this role is a passion for developing, training, and activating “missionary disciples” and helping to create a Catholic culture at St. Bartholomew where God is personally known and loved. The ideal candidate will be motivated by the challenges of evangelizing in a post-Christian culture, willing to re-envision how the Church helps people encounter Christ and accompanies them as life-long disciples.


Statement on Working for the Catholic Church


Employment in and by the Catholic Church is substantially different from secular employment. Church employees must conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with and supportive of the mission and purpose of the Church. Their behavior must not violate the faith, morals or laws of the Church or the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, nor can it embarrass the Church or give rise to scandal. It is required that this employee be a Catholic.

General Responsibilities

Working in concert with Formation Staff, this position co-creates and coordinates formation programs, retreats, small groups, events, and parish outreach to form parishioners into missionary disciples who can boldly share Christ with those around them. This position allots half of its time towards coordinating St. Bart’s Middle/High School and Confirmation programs in collaboration with Formation Department staff. The remaining half allows the candidate to develop and assist with young adult, adult, and small group ministries according to the parish’s needs and his or her interests, experience, and desires.

Representative Responsibilities

  • Collaborate with Formation Staff to create innovative opportunities for parishioners to encounter Christ, cultivate a life-long relationship with Him, and live the fullness of the Catholic Faith in daily life.
  • Help to shape a vibrant, on-fire Catholic Culture at Saint Bartholomew’s by living the faith dynamically—pursuing daily prayer, participating in the community’s sacramental life, and serving others with an openness to the movement of the Holy Spirit.
  • Co-develop and execute dynamic retreats, community events, and other ministry opportunities for the parish, establishing working relationships with national ministries like Damascus, Stone to Flesh, and Heart of the Father, among others.
  • Develop and manage an engaging Youth Ministry environment at St. Barts for Middle and High School Students, offering a weekly presence at meetings to cultivate relationships and preparing programming 1-2x/month (September-May).
  • Re-envision Confirmation preparation (in collaboration with Formation Department staff) to create a program that is experiential in nature, offers candidates a powerful encounter with Christ, and is focused on forming life-long disciples.
  • Assist with recruiting, training, and evaluating adult and student volunteers, ensuring compliance with Archdiocesan and Parish policies and procedures.
  • Participate in Formation Staff and parish Faith Formation Commission meetings.
  • Complete other projects as assigned by the Pastor and/or Director of Ongoing Formation and Discipleship
