Job Description:

Christ Community, located in a small town a stone's throw from St. Louis, is praying for someone who would walk alongside them as a congregation to disciple their young people in the ways of Jesus. In spite of the pandemic's continued reshaping of our world and in many ways BECAUSE of it, ministry to our young people has remained a critical part of our work as a church. We need someone with energy and faith to engage and relate to our young people so that relationships and trust can be built and lives can be transformed in Christ. We have a great history of deep collaboration and support of our ministry to youth and the youth worker we call. If you have a heart for young people please take a leap of faith and contact us today. We would LOVE to talk to you!

We have a great facility as a home base for worship, education, fellowship and discipleship, but we are committed to reaching beyond our walls out into the community. With a great number of young families and young people in our midst, we are committed to ministering to our children, youth and families so that faith is passed along and discipleship is built to last a lifetime.
