Do you have boundless energy? Infinite zip, zing and zeal? Are you a people magnet with a contagious passion for reaching out and sharing the love of God? Do young people actually think you're kinda cool? If so, you may be just the person we're looking for.

Crossroads is a multisite church with 5 locations in 3 states with over 9 weekend experiences and that is just the beginning. We are currently looking for a campus youth pastor, for our White Pines campus, who will also give oversight to our children's ministry.

-Experienced in developing adults and students to assume leadership roles within both youth and children's ministry
-Knowledgeable in student ministires with at least two years of experience
-Able to relocate to new campus locations, if necesary
-A wiz at communicating and relating to people; specifically young people
-Capable of understanding and excelling in a multi-site, centrally driven youth and children's ministry model
-Able to commit to the core values of Crossroads and willing to meet membership requirements

You Will Be...
-In charge of building a youth ministry team within a new campus environment
-Recruiting, equipping, leading and motivating a strong group of volunteer leaders who love the Lord and love kids
-Totally cool with jumping headfirst into a fast-paced, evolving ministry environment
-Leading weekly student workship experiences that include a live band, multi-media and extensive technical components
-Behind the scenes with Kidzlink coordinating leaders to run services
-Working toward management of future staff members and interns
