Minister to Young Adults/Discipleship/Community
CrossLife Church is a family-oriented, gospel-centered church with a mission to build lives that matter by teaching people to love, know, trust, and follow Jesus. We are located in Oviedo Florida, just outside of Orlando, where within a five-mile radius of the church the fastest growing demographic is adults 24-35. We are excited about adding a Minister of Young Adults to our team. The Minister of Young Adults will implement a comprehensive program of leading young adults—24-35 years old, both single and married—in a growing relationship with Jesus. This person must have the ability to reach and attract young adults from the community. They must also possess an entrepreneurial quality to be able to assess the opportunities to maximize the potential for reaching young adults and their families in the Oviedo/Winter Springs area. It is essential that this person also be able to connect with young adults on a social and spiritual level, with the intent of discipling them towards Christ-like maturity.

Community Engagement – Our vision is to share the gospel of Jesus wherever we live, work, play and go so the sun will not set on the ministry of CrossLife Church. The Minister of Young Adults will be directed to implement an intentional and strategic plan to ensure the church is sharing that vision in our own backyard through community involvement with a mission that will impact the surrounding area for the gospel.
