Job Description:

Student Minister

Oak Hills Church  (Journey Fellowship Campus), San Antonio, TX

Assisting Campus Minister in campus development and growth in the specific areas of ministry to Jr. High and High School Students and families.



Oak Hills Church is a multi-site church with five locations throughout San Antonio and one in Fredericksburg, Texas.  Each campus celebrates a shared passion to reach their city and neighbors through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and a commitment to grow believers in their Christian walk. Oak Hills Church is led by Senior Minister Randy Frazee and Preaching Minister Max Lucado.  The vision of Oak Hills Church is to see the presence of Christ in every neighborhood, a decision for Christ in every seeker, and the maturity of Christ in every Disciple.



The Journey Fellowship campus is located on I-35 in the growing northeast area of San Antonio (Schertz, Texas).  Schertz has been selected multiple times by Money Magazine as one of the “Best Places to Live in America” due in part to a low cost of living, great schools and convenient access to all the amenities of San Antonio.  

The Journey Fellowship campus of OHC launched with 70 people in the spring of 2005.  From the beginning, Journey has been known for its casual environment and its commitment to reaching the unchurched with the gospel of Christ and seeing their lives changed forever.  Hallmarks of Journey Fellowship include the casual connection center of the JF coffee house and the JF worship center with its unique combination of chairs, bistro tables, and couches.

Today, the Journey Fellowship Campus averages almost 1200 people each weekend and continues to grow.  The JF Campus is comprised of a large number of young families as well as strong children and student ministries.  Baptism is regularly celebrated in worship throughout the year as lives changed by the Gospel are a focal point of celebration and a reminder of our mission.



The Student Minister will serve as the key leader and communicator of student ministries at the Journey Fellowship Campus of Oak Hills Church.  The ideal candidate will have a track record of building and growing a student ministry, being an excellent communicator, and bringing an innovative mindset to leadership and problem solving. The ideal candidate will be creative, energetic, technologically advanced, and possess the ability to motivate others. They will be expected to work with Student Ministry leadership from Oak Hills Church to enhance programs already in place and create new initiatives as well.  Building a ministry where students are growing in faith, maturity, and influence would be the centerpiece of the position. The effective student minister will help our ministry grow measurably in the number of students participating weekly as our campus and community continue to grow.
