Job Description:
PASTOR of STUDENT MINISTRIES ABOUT OUR CHURCH: Okotoks Alliance is a growing church in the Town of Okotoks, Alberta. Our desire is to be a community that is fully surrendered to Jesus Christ. We are a relational and passionate church that is trying to make a difference in our community and the world at large. One of our core values is to build into the lives of families and we find ourselves in a community that is full of opportunity to minister to our families!

ABOUT OUR CHURCH:Okotoks is a beautiful town just 15 minutes south of Calgary. It is a growing community that is presently home to about 18,000 residents. Although the town is developing quickly, growth will be capped at 30,000 thereby intentionally preserving its natural attributes. Parks, pathways and easy access to Kananaskis Country characterize Okotoks, nestled in the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The Sheep River flows from the Rockies directly through the town, providing both a natural refuge for wildlife and recreation for our residents. We host all the conveniences of the city (Starbucks, Canadian Tire, Home Depot and Wal-Mart) without the traffic. Our town is intentional in its desire to retain its charm.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR: We are presently searching for the right person to join our staff and give leadership to Student Ministries. The successful candidate will be a composite blend of the required Character, Chemistry and Competence (in that order). Our recruitment process is designed to validate that. The main responsibilities of this role are to oversee the ministry and pastor our students. The breadth of the ministry are those in grades 7 through 12 as well as college and university. We are looking for someone with a passion for Christ, His children and a mission to reach them. Ideally, the successful candidate will bring both post secondary education as well as practical and transferable ministry experience. You will be an integral member of our leadership team. As such, you bring a demonstrated commitment to shared values, vision (where are we going) and mission (how will we get there).
