Good Shepherd Church and School, located in the beautiful, seaside village of Tequesta, Florida, is looking for a full-time Director of Children, Youth and Family Ministries for its growing congregation. We are a loving parish family seeking a creative and engaging leader to develop our kids and family programs.

At Good Shepherd, kids of all ages (and their families) care deeply about Jesus Christ and each other. The parish culture is one of helpfulness, caring and spirituality at every age. We enjoy fellowship and outreach. We love our pets, and you’ll see them here from time to time. Working at Good Shepherd is busy, but fun.
