Valley Christian Fellowship is a growing faith_noemailmunity of about 450 located in the Santa Ynez Valley, about 30 miles north of Santa Barbara California. As a church, we are passionate about seeing lives change through biblical teaching, authentic worship, and loving the lost and the broken in our_noemailmunity and beyond. We are an intergenerational church and place a high value on family and raising our teens to know and serve the Lord.
Our youth ministry fluctuates between 100-150 students who are impacting their friendships and campuses for Christ through small groups, evangelism, missions and acts of service that practically use their spiritual gifts. Because the teen years significantly shape a student's identity, we want a leader who is passionate about helping students connect with the Jesus, discover and utilize their spiritual gifts, receive God's call to bring love and justice into our broken world, and experience Christ's transforming power in their lives right now. Our youth ministry seeks to create an environment where students can_noemaile and learn the Bible, ask questions about life and faith, and develop healthy friendships.
For 10 years our current youth pastor has intentionally challenged our youth to think globally and participate in numerous short term mission opportunities around the world. He is now moving his family to share Christ in Northern India.
We are prepared to demonstrate our support for a new youth pastor with both time and resources. If Valley Christian Fellowship sounds like a_noemailmunity that is in step with your calling, we invite you to send your resume and a DVD or youtube of you speaking to youth to youthpastorsearch@vcfconnect_noemail.
