Youth and Ministry Coordinator (Bi-Lingual) – Diocese of Baker

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Baker is a missionary diocese comprising 18 counties covering the eastern two-thirds of the State of Oregon (66,826 square miles). Predominately rural, the diocese serves approximately 40,000 Catholics in 36 parishes, 23 missions and 5 Catholic schools . it is also home to three Indian reservations and a large growing Hispanic population (approx. 40%). There are 30 active diocesan priests (16 from Baker and 14 from other dioceses), 4 religious order priests and 13 sisters working the diocese. Website: www.dioceseofbaker.org.

This role provides a rare opportunity for a person who is committed to the totality of the New Evangelization and is looking to serve in an expansive and dynamic role.

The Youth and Ministry Coordinator is an integral and collaborative role within the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis team. Working in alignment with the Bishop’s vision and the mission of the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis, this role has both ministry and administrative responsibilities.

Administrative responsibilities include scheduling, communicating and logistics for all Office of Evangelization and Catechesis events, editor of a monthly eNewsletter highlighting diocesan ministry initiatives, maintenance of existing online (web) pages, development and promotion of new online media tools in collaboration with the ministry team.

This position requires travel (averaging 25%) to parishes and schools throughout the diocese to meet with staff and volunteers. This role also serves as a member of a training team for various ministry leadership and catechetical workshops.
