Posted by: Jason Veach

Posted date: Aug-28-2016

Location: Portland, OR

Description of the Role:

Eden Community is seeking a Pastor to Youth and Families. We are

looking for someone who is a pastor at heart, committed to the Gospel

and a Wesleyan approach to it, mature in character, and committed to

continued education and growth in their ministry skills. This person will allow

their practice to be shaped by their theology. They will be passionate

about seeing youth come to faith and grow in discipleship within the Body

of Christ. They will balance an approach to youth ministry that allows for

both age-specific and intergenerational environments. They will be a

student of youth culture and culture at large. They will love and care for

the city of Portland and its people. They will be proficient in a variety of

modes of communication. They will be organized, efficient, and

proactive. Above all, they will approach ministry relationally, seeing each

person as a beloved child of God.

Because our ministry to youth is still in its early stages, this person will

be a driven self-starter who can take initiative, see what needs to be

done to develop and grow the ministry, and move forward in design and

implementation while inviting the students, families, and the larger church

community along. As part of a team of pastors, this person will be

committed to the shared vision and care of the whole congregation and

would be willing to be stretched to use their gifts in the wider ministry of

the church including, but not limited to, preaching, leading prayers and other
liturgy in worship, pastoral care, etc.
