Job Description:

“When did we start believing that God wants to send us to safe places to do easy things? Jesus didn’t die to keep us safe. He died to make us dangerous."  ~ Mark Batterson


 Do you want to be dangerous in the middle of one of the most unique, least reached and fastest growing cities in Canada overflowing with young families wanting to live life to the full? Think the bustling oilsands of Northern Alberta! Think Fort McMurray Alliance Church!


Do you have a passion for children, youth and their families with a heart for mission? Would you like to serve in an area with the highest per-capita birth rate in the country, where new schools are continually opening, where growing numbers of young parents are looking for guidance in how to do family right? Are you committed to the formation of spiritually alive emerging young history makers and their parents from churched and unchurched backgrounds, coming from nations the world over? Then you need to seriously look at this opportunity!    


You will be serving in Fort McMurray, where the demographic is young, affluent, high energy and hard working, giving the city a bit of an “edge” to it. The region has played a catalytic role in the current economic health of the country. This northern city is home to an array of diverse quality recreational and entertainment opportunities while providing an incredible playground for the outdoors sports enthusiast.


If you’re looking for a comfortable children’s, youth and family ministry position in a typical evangelical church, we’re probably not it. If you’re jazzed serving at a church that will give you the breathing space to think beyond the box in order to effectively serve our postmodern, post-Christian city, we might be it!  

This position reports directly to the Lead Pastor who is committed to your growth and development as a pastoral leader. If you lack full time ministry experience we would be a great place to get it. If you have a ton of experience, that would be sweet!
