Employment Opportunities

LREDA lists religious education employment opportunities as a free service to LREDA members. Openings may be submitted for inclusion in this list anytime (Post an opportunity in your congregation). Congregations may also purchase a one-time email message contact of LREDA members for $75/$80 to aid a targeted mailing via email or post. This list will include all LREDA members who have not opted out of sharing their contact information. These listings are a free service and do not imply any recommendation or endorsement on the part of the LREDA Board. Please allow a few days for submissions to be posted. 

LREDA strongly encourages congregations to use UUA Fair Compensation Guidelines when hiring a religious educator.

Positions are listed in alphabetical order by state/province and city.
