Job Description:
Hosanna! has just built a brand new facility in which we have doubled our space and quadrupled our reach. We have momentum and the Holy Spirit on our side as we expand in so many ways, including our Youth Ministry. We currently have about 100 middle school youth and 30 senior high youth engaged in the ministry, and we believe that there is a large upside potential for even more youth.
We are looking for a full time Youth Director who, as in the words of our Youth Mission Statement, will "Teach youth about Jesus in a welcoming, fun and safe enviroment, where friends will gather and build relationships with Christ and others while serving God."
The congregation, staff and team of volunteer adult leaders are excited for the next step that Hosanna! takes forward to expand our Youth Ministry.
Whoever becomes our next Youth Director, we seek a person who has a deep and growing faith in Jesus, is a self-starter, a team player and is a compassionate caregiver. These qualities are the ones I look for in every staff member who is employed at Hosanna!. And then I look to skills. In a Youth Director, certainly an ability to disciple youth to and in Jesus, be a servant leader, manage and administrate the details, teach Confirmation, build relationships, attract more youth, engage youth in the life of the church, and develop others to be leaders as well.
Our staff operates as one team, one family. We just had a meeting and we couldn't figure out if our theme song should be "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" or "Dive". As Head of Staff I have an expectation that staff has fun, enthusiasm and lots of hope.
Is God tugging at your heart to contact Hosanna!?
The position is open now.
