Director of Programming


Avondale Samaritan Place (ASP) is hiring for two new positions. ASP is a joint vision of Avondale and Canterbury United Methodist Churches for outreach and mission in the Avondale Community. Housed in the Avondale UMC gymnasium building, ASP brings together people from Avondale, Canterbury, and the surrounding community to facilitate the sort of connections between neighbors (businesses included!) that improve everyone's lives. The work of ASP focuses particularly on helping people who are on the margins. We provide home repair for those who can't afford it; we provide social workers and healthcare support; we offer after school activities for elementary children; and we provide food assistance to food-insecure individuals and families in our area. As our community continues to grow, be revitalized, and transform, we see our work through ASP as a key to helping everyone in Avondale experience the love of Christ. The Director of Programming shall be a well trained professional with strong interpersonal and organizational skills. S/he will develop, implement, and provide oversight to ASP’s programs and ministries specifically related to targeted populations, geographies, and outcomes.
