Category: Youth Pastor & Youth Ministry

Posted on: January 16, 2019

Job Description:

We are searching for a dynamic individual with a contagious faith in Jesus Christ to offer leadership and_noemailanization to an established youth ministry program. The current program meets on Wednesday evening, draws from four local high schools, and is attended by 40+ students in grades seven through twelve. Outreach activities and events have seen that number swell to 60+. Many of our students are involved in small group, age-level discipleship programs which meet weekly. Our volunteer staff currently has sixteen adults sharing their time with students. In addition, there is an excellent Children's Ministry program which "feeds into" the Youth Ministry program. The potential for continued growth is exceptional. Sharptown places a high value on students of all ages and their families.

The candidate for this position should have an academic degree in youth ministry or at least two years related professional experience. There is an expectation that the applicant would function effectively on a pastoral team and have the ability to build and lead a team of parents, volunteers, and staff for the purpose of creating a catalytic faith_noemailmunity that leads students from where they are to where God wants them to be. We are seeking a leader who will connect with non-churched students and provide the next step for them to grow spiritually as well as provide a place for students following Christ to be equipped and on mission in their spiritual journey. They will also have strong_noemailanizational and_noemailmunication skills, both verbal and written, which enables them to connect with students during weekly meetings and across multiple platforms.
