Community Church of Providence (American Baptist Churches, USA) is a diverse and inclusive congregation in Providence, RI.  Candidates from other denominations are encouraged to apply.

The part-time Associate Pastor for Families will become a part of a collaborative ministry team with strong volunteer support, and, in addition to specializing in ministry with children and their families, is encouraged to serve in a wide range of ministry areas depending on her/his interests and gifts (social justice, worship, preaching, pastoral care).  We aim to provide a foundational and enriching environment for our children and youth, enabling them to experience God’s love, grow in their faith and discipleship, and discover opportunities to serve others.

  • Providing hands-on leadership and growth for ministries to children and youth and their families, including but not limited to Sunday morning Christian Education.
  • Planning activities for children, youth, and their families, including opportunities to fellowship, explore the community/nature, lead in worship, and give back in service.
  • Creating opportunities for engagement with children and youth during the summer months, especially during our CCOP Kids’ Week.
  • Serving in other areas of ministry, dependent upon gifts and interests.


  • Commitment to the well-being of children and youth and their development.
  • Experience working with young people in comparable settings.
  • Openness to theological diversity.
  • Outstanding organizational and interpersonal skills.
