Job Description:
TLCC currently provides a Student Ministry that leads young people into deep personal relationships with Christ, growing young people with biblical world views, who are engaged in accountable relationships with peers and adults. We have a heart for both inward and outward community service we want our youth to be spiritually attractive to non-Christians and to be real examples of a Christ centered lifestyle. We provide mid week small groups, monthly outreach opportunities, missions trips, and community service events along with exciting group activities. We are looking to add to our family a passionate team leader with strong interpersonal skills and a life encompassing relationship with Christ.

Our Mission is to inspire people to grow in their life with God and to learn, live, and lead as authentic followers of Jesus Christ. We are looking for someone to fully embrace and commit to incorporating this mission in the activities and teachings of our young people. We believe that today’s students need a creative and safe place where they can hang out with their peers while being challenged to live faith-filled and purposeful lives through meaningful relationships. The person we seek is highly teachable—reading, relevant, thinking, learning, challenging, experimenting, and passionately expanding his or her understanding of the youth we are called to serve. Our Student ministries director needs to embrace and exert creativity, flexibility and initiative within definite plans, goals, procedures and guidelines. We are seeking an individual with a Bible College or Seminary degree, or with a college degree and relevant professional experience. Salary will be commensurate with training and experience.

Do you feel called to reach a culture that is often disregarded, overlooked and under appreciated? Do you have what it takes to live and teach Jesus in one of the most creative and influential regions in the world? Do you have skills that you bring that we should know about outside of the obvious gifts required? Are you willing to set aside the 9-to-5 lifestyle to join a small team responding to the varied demands of an innovative, fast-changing, growing, multi cultural church and community? Can you recruit, develop and lead a growing team of volunteers, equipping them to minister to kids and share their struggles and triumphs? Can you deliver relevant messages from God’s Word that come from the heart and will speak to youth with an awe-inspiring vision of God and meaningful personal application? Do you practice spiritual disciplines that will equip and sustain you through the challenges of full time ministry?

Send us your information and allow us to prayerfully consider you as our new Student Ministry director.
