The Associate Student Pastor will serve as the associate leader of the Jr.High, High School and possibly College Ministries at Element Church. While all ministries at Element Church will function within the framework of the larger church vision. The Associate Student Pastor will seek to creatively implement that vision in a way that is relevant and effective for the student population.


Element Church is a fast-growing congregation of 2400+ with an incredible vision to develop and disciple students. The weekly student ministry services will be a time to creatively reach this lost generation. Leadership development will be at the core of this position. At the pace Element is growing (more than 20% annually), it is imperative to quickly have strong systems in place for recruiting and developing leaders.



The effective Associate Student Pastor will creatively design services to provide opportunities for students to come to know Christ, as well as build systems to address growth and make disciples.  They will achieve the following goals:


  • Lead dynamically from the platform, but also place heavy emphasis on developing current and future leaders for the ministry.
  • Bring a level of creativity to student ministry services that are in line with Element Church’s other weekend experiences. 
  • Recruit and thoroughly train a student volunteer force to serve in weekend services and special events for the church.
  • Assist in developing a vision and plan for resourcing and improving the student ministry at Element Church.
  • Direct and manage the student ministry budget with a high-level of stewardship and understanding of the “big picture.”
  • Create a strategy and build systems for the future development of Element’s large student ministry.
  • Lead an established staff while providing vision and training to take the department to the next level.
