Our Ideal Youth Pastor
We're seeking a youth pastor who is passionate about youth ministry; passionate about reaching kids who need Christ, and training up disciples. Our Youth ministry has 150 kids currently. The Youth Pastor we’re looking for will need to have the administrative, preaching, and leadership skills to lead a team of 40 leaders, preach twice a week (Jr. High and High School), lead missions trips and camps, etc.
Our ideal candidate would be a young married man with previous experience in a church of 500+, previous experience in leading a youth ministry of 75+. He would be a gifted leader of leaders, an excellent preacher and teacher, a man of integrity, and someone who sees himself as a youth pastor for at least the next five years. He would be someone of ingenuity, innovation, and initiative-taking. He would be creative, with skills in lighting, sound, graphics and video editing, and gifted in administration. He would have a compelling personality and excellent interpersonal skills. He would have equal passion for evangelism and discipleship. He would have at least a Bachelor’s degree, and preferably a Master’s Degree in Youth Ministry, Divinity, Theology, or Leadership.
Our church has grown from 75 to 750 in 5 years, and we expect our youth pastor to continue to grow our youth program as our church grows. We recently constructed and moved into new facilities. We have four weekend services. Our Worship is contemporary and edgy. Our staff is young – our Lead pastor is 34. Our Church is a Free Methodist Church; the Youth Pastor must be amenable to Wesleyan-Arminian Theology (belief in salvation by grace, through faith - not salvation by decree and ation by decree; the work of the Cross is open to all who believe!) Our church is open to the gifts, power, and presence of the Holy Spirit, while also hoping to avoid the excesses of Charismania. Our youth pastor must be in agreement with these things.
