We want to hear from you! We are currently looking to hire a part-time Youth Director as part of our growing team in Kingsport.
What We’re Looking For:
COVID-19 has completely changed the game for churches. Like many other congregations, our in-person activities have been (and continue to be) very limited as we seek to faithfully and wisely navigate this season. However, the problem of COVID has presented new possibilities for how we “do church” and reach people with the Gospel. So, as we consider what we are looking for in our next Youth Director, we are looking less to fill a position and more to find the right person who can fulfill a mission that might require the candidate and the church to attempt things no job description could adequately describe.
To that end, here are some of the characteristics we are looking for in our next Youth Director. We are seeking someone who is…
o We believe that ministry in general should be fun! Can you lead a ministry that students and their friends love to be a part of?
o In a post-COVID world, the ability to innovate and pivot are essential qualities needed in leaders. When you don’t know what to do, can you figure it out?
o The most successful team members are those who don’t have to wait to be told what to do. Can you think like an “owner” instead of an “employee?”
o KCC is strategically placed in our community. We share a parking lot with the largest middle school in the area. Do you want to reach them?
o We believe that youth ministry is at its best when the ministry extends to the whole family. Do you have a heart to help parents spiritually lead their children?
• A Team-Builder
o Leading a ministry is an impossible task for just one person. Can you recruit volunteers and build the team, so it doesn’t all rest on your shoulders?
• A Good Communicator
o One of the biggest challenges in ministry today is that different people use different tools to communicate. Can you effectively connect with students and families using a wide variety of methods?
• An Authentic Friend
o Our youth ministry is small enough right now that the Youth Director will be able to connect relationally with each and every student and family. Do you want to know and be known?
Other Things You Probably Want to Know
• Hours: 10-15 weekly
• Salary: Depending on qualifications, the salary range is $12,000-$15,000
• Vacation Time: Fully paid and as needed. Take care of yourself!
o For special youth events like overnight trips or conventions, the youth director will be compensated in extra PTO
• We are committed to the Orange Curriculum, so familiarity with Orange is a plus
• Familiar with Planning Center a plus
