Director of Religious Education

The full job description is available here.

The Director of Religious Education (DRE) directs the children’s and teen religious education program of the Unitarian Universalist Society of Oneonta (UUSO). The DRE works autonomously with a moderate level of authority, collaborating with the Minister, staff, and the Religious Education (RE) team. The DRE recruits, trains, and supports religious education volunteers. The DRE ensures that the “Safer Congregations” best practice protocols are followed and is the frontline staff support for families. The DRE hires, supervises, and terminates employment of childcare providers. Please visit

Because it is a best practice not to hire members or applicants with strong ties to the congregation, the search team will prioritize candidates from outside of UUSO, while keeping in mind the importance of a candidate with experience in Unitarian Universalism.

Who we are: At UUSO, we work to create a beloved community where all are valued, where all are treated with compassion and respect. Together, we are working towards personal growth and transformation while also transforming the wider world of which we are part. We hope to find a way to feed, clothe, and house those who have slipped through the ever-widening cracks in our society.  We want to extend our beloved community to all of society, letting everyone know they are honored and loved regardless of ability, race, gender, sexuality, class, or ethnicity. We want to be a voice for reason and faith in our society at large.  We champion the interdependent web of existence, upon which we depend, and which currently depends on us.

Requirements (Essential):

Requirements (Preferred):

Salary range and benefits: 20 hours a week at  $16.50 – $18.50/hour, depending upon experience. After one year of employment UUSO will contribute 10% to a retirement plan.
