CrossPointe Church, a purpose-driven Southern Baptist congregation, seeks a highly energetic and creative pastor for our student ministry, The Door. The ministry has been highly effective with students who were not churched, and has grown from 25 to 75 in the past year, with some events attended by more than 100 students. We are seeking an individual who is able to capture the imagination of a wide variety of students using sports, multi-media, and relationship building, and is not afraid of the challenges posed by reaching and discipling students, many of whom have very little church in their backgrounds.
The position includes developing a well-balanced, purpose-driven ministry for all students (6th grade through college graduation) , and the equipping of volunteer leadership to do the work of the ministry in this vital area of the church.
The successful candidate should be an effective speaker who uses humor as a part of his teaching method and is able to engage a variety of teens. He must be willing to meet students where they are through being a regular presence in the local schools. Experience with video production and sports are pluses, but not musts. The ministry already has an effective worship leader, a part-time intern, and many enthusiastic volunteers. In addition, the successful candidate should be comfortable following a highly-successful student pastor who was instrumental in bringing much of the current student base into the church.
This position is a well compensated but part-time position (minimum 25 hrs per week) which is open to any candidate, but might best suit a seminary student.
Sorry, but because this is a well-developed ministry, we CANNOT consider candidates with less than two years full-time experience or five years part-time experience as the overall leader of a church's student ministry. We CANNOT consider individuals who have not at least completed a bachelor's degree. We would also prefer some seminary training.
CrossPointe Church is an "outside the box", contemporary ministry which desires to make ripples in this community by touching lives and changing destinies. If ministry in the flexible environment of a church plant located south of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex appeals to you, please send your resume soon. We will begin interviewing qualified candidates shortly.
