We are seeking an associate Pastor to fill the role of Youth & Outreach Pastor.
The youth position would be responsible to minister to our youth/teens & college age students. You'd be responsible to teach teen Sunday School, plan and organize youth events, schedule and plan youth group, organize events both in-house and on the district, and disciple the students and teach Christ in ways that would solidify the truths of Jesus that students need to be able to not only live out their faith daily but also defend it. We want pracitcal application, not just knowledge. The truth of Jesus that they can learn on Sunday and take it into Monday. We are also wanting a youth pastor who will present and encourage ministry opportunitites to our teens both within the church and outside of the church. We love to see teens connect with adults in our congregation! We're also looking for someone who will connect with our teens outside of our church setting as well. That may be at events but will also be at their school, extra-curricular events, in their homes, in your home and anywhere else. Relationship is KEY with our teens.
As Outreach Pastor, the pastor would be responsible to organize, plan and implement events and ministries that take our church "out of the house" and into our community. Examples may be trunk-or-treat, a back to school night at a local school, a ministry to our local Union Gospel Mission, or serving or ministering in many other opportunities.
As an associate Pastor, you will also be asked to take on some ministry of hospital and in home visits, weddings, funerals, etc. as needed. You'll also be involved in preaching from time to time throughout the year as organized and planned for with the senior Pastor. We're also looking for someone who would have knowledge of and be able to assist with audio/video production and website and social media usage.
The position is listed as full time. However, should the pastor need to indlude SOME bi-vocational work to boost the salary, that can be worked out and allowed.
