Job Description:
FirstChurch is a large, multi-site Presbyterian church in Champaign / Urbana, Illinois. We are striving to be a missional church with an external focus and are in the process of aligning all our programs along a vision of community involvement and community transformation.

We are looking for a Director of Youth Ministries who can be a visionary leader and an agent of change within the lives of our youth and volunteers, within our youth programs, and within our community.

Here’s what we are NOT looking for:
• Someone to maintain the status quo.
• Someone who will attract kids by being a charismatic leader.
• Someone who just wants to grow a big youth group.

Here’s what we ARE looking for:
• Someone who is absolutely convinced that the defining trait of Christian discipleship is following Jesus INTO the world.
• Someone who equips and releases the people of God to do the ministry of God.
• Someone who gets excited about finding creative, team-based solutions to challenging ministry situations.
• Someone who loves collaboration, brainstorming, and vision casting together with a church staff of motivated, big picture people who love to read, study, and think together about what God is calling the church to do and to be.
