Posted by: Dusty Pauken

Posted date: Mar-07-2018

Location: Morenci, MI


Morenci Naz is a wonderful church to call home, and we are making an impact for the Kingdom of God here in southern Michigan!  We're looking for a youth pastor that is: 


-Highly relational 

"Ministry IS relationships."  Teens won't remember your sermon series 10 years from now, but they will remember your presence, attitude and personality.  Looking for someone to connect with teens before and after services, at activities/sporting events and simply have fun with them!
-A leader, not just a doer

A pastor's job is to 'equip the saints for the work of the ministry', not just to 'do' the work of the ministry.  Mentoring teens to discover and develop their gifts to serve is critical to a thriving ministry.
-A team player

Ministry requires flexibility.  Working with a variety of personalities, schedules and challenges; a good pastor is one who can work well with others, even when they don't see eye to eye.
-A learner

We can't afford to get stuck in our thinking or patterns of ministry.  Continuing education is incredibly valuable to any leader, especially a pastor.


Weekly requirements: 

-Wednesday youth service.  1 hour service with worship, prayer, teaching and games.  Fellowship before and after service.
-Sunday School.  A 45 minute small group before service involving video teaching, critical thinking/discussion, fellowship and snacks. 
-Relational connection apart from service times
-Monthly 60 minute staff meeting
-Weekly 15 minute check in with Pastor Dusty

-7 fun/connection events, 5 service projects each year.  Some of these can be district events (Youth convention, Celebrate Life, Camp, etc.)


-Parsonage.  3 bedroom ranch in the neighborhood of the church.
-Part-time salary.  
-Church pays your self-employment tax.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you and seeing if your gifts and calling would be a good fit here in Morenci!  Feel free to visit MorenciNaz.com or visit us on Facebook as well.  
Send what you have from the following to MorenciNaz@gmail.com:
Resume, 2 references, StrengthFinders top 5, APEST scores, Meyers-Briggs profile.

Grace and peace,

Pastor Dusty Pauken
