Job Opening: University Place Christian Church in Champaign

By December 29, 2015No Comments

Job Opening: University Place Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Champaign, IL has a job opening for a new position at the church. It will not be a position filled through Search and Call and is not limited to licensed or ordained ministers, though they are welcome to apply. The title is Campus Connector, a full-time position for an enterprising candidate to build a strong ministry of presence on the University of Illinois campus, connecting students’ gifts and interests with local community needs and non-profit agencies. We are especially interested in candidates recently graduated from college or who will graduate spring 2016. HELM Leadership Fellows, XPLOR residents, and so forth who have been exploring vocation may find this an attractive job for post-college. Our ideal candidate would stay with us for several years. Candidates do not need to be previously associated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) but will need to have a faith consistent with our values and beliefs. UniPlace is open and affirming, a progressive witness in the Urbana-Champaign community. The University of Illinois has a student body approaching 44,000 and we hope to harness some of that energy for the good of God’s reign.
