Job Number: 43-52
Opening/Closing Date: January 11, 2021 to February 1, 2021

Are you, or do you know, a young adult (18-30) who is passionate about the church and ecumenical conversations in Canada?

The Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) is adding three Youth Members to its Governing Board. The United Church of Canada is invited to nominate one of our members for these positions.

What’s expected? The Youth Member will be a full voting member of the Board and contribute to all aspects of its conversations and decision-making. Youth Members seek to advance the purposes of the whole of the CCC, not simply their own member church. There are two 3-day meetings each year (Wednesday-Friday), with additional calls or meetings as necessary. Youth Members will also participate in another commission, committee or group that matches their interest.  The appointment is for three years.

I’m interested! What do I do?

  1. Read the full position description.
  2. Talk to at least two people who know you well. See if they agree that this is a good match for your gifts and your time.
  3. Tell us about yourself using this online form by February 1, 2021


I know someone who would be perfect!

Wonderful. Your encouragement will mean a lot. Talk to them about why you think they should apply. If they agree, help them to tell us about themselves using this online form by February 1, 2021.

The United Church will select one person to be our nomination to the Board by mid-February. After that, it will be up to the CCC to determine who they might appoint from the nominations they receive from member denominations.

If this opportunity has caught your interest, we want to hear from you. Even if you don’t end up serving on the CCC Board, we look forward to getting to know you. Who knows what else the future might hold? There are many ways to be involved.
