Grace Baptist Church
Category: Youth Ministry
Time Type: Full Time
Our senior pastor is Dr. Andy Prince. Grace Baptist Church is focused on reaching the un-churched in its community, equipping new disciples, and desires to continue to grow, with the vision of planting a new church from our congregation.
Grace Baptist Church is now seeking a Minister to Families with Students. The Minister to Families with Students is the minister for the younger generations of the church and will oversee the ministries, systems and environments of the church to ensure that the family of God is working together to make disciples of the younger generation. He is first a minister for the young (children, youth and early adults) because these are the people who are least knowledgeable and least experienced in the Christian life. He is next a minister for the parents of these young people because they are in the greatest position to influence the young.
This person will work closely with the pastoral team and elders to implement the church's mission and provide leadership in helping our younger generation grow in their relationship with God through His Word and prayer; by encouraging obedience to Christ; by equipping the younger generation to walk in fellowship with each other; by assisting in training them to build relationships intentionally to share the gospel; and, assisting them to discover and use their spiritual gifts to grow God's church. Helping the younger generation to apply God's Word to their lives and be able to help others to know God's Word is essential to the ministry of this position.
The compensation for this position is $35,000 - $42,000, plus medical insurance compensation, retirement and vacation.
