The High School and Young Adult Leader is a passionate disciple of Jesus Christ who is called to love young people and encourage them in their faith. The HS/YA Leader will not only embrace the leadership of an existing, dynamic High school ministry but also help create and launch new midweek worship initiatives that target High school students, college age and young adult populations. Following Christ's model of ministry, we seek a strong leader who is willing to "dwell" among young people in this_noemailmunity, to build relationships with the churched and the unchurched and to help create places where young people are encouraged not only to avoid detours of faith but to grow and flourish in Christ.

To inspire youth/young adults in the Allentown area to develop life-long, intimate relationships with Jesus Christ

To empower the youth/young adults of APC to serve with such passion for God that their_noemailmunities and their worlds are impacted for Christ
The High School and Young Adult Leader seeks a close, personal walk with Christ and chooses to nurture his/her own faith through scripture, worship, daily devotion, observance of the Sabbath and prayer.
