Growing United Methodist Church in northern suburb to Milwaukee, Wisconsin seeks a full time Director of Student Ministries. This person will be the visionary, architect, strategist and primary pointguard for the youth programming, discipleship of our church
teens and outreach to the Cedarburg community. This person, while having primary responsibility for all Sr. High Youth Ministry, will also give oversight, mentoring and collegial teamwork to our part-time Middle School Youth Pastor for an integrated impact.
This person must have a passion for discipling teens in developmentally appropriate, fun and youthful ways into fully devoted followers of Christ. High communication and teaching skills are necessary, as we employ a weekly youth worship model of youth gatherings,
followed by small group interaction. Creative programming should be used to create attraction events to engage unchurched or unconnected youth. Growing our youth program into a magnet style ministry is very important as we are adjacent to the High School and
anticipate building a Youth Center with activity space and cafe within a few years. Musical abilities to lead a band would be desirable, but not necessary. On Sundays we employ a blended style of worship utilizing the full language of praise from traditional
to contemporary bands. What matters most is a multifaceted approach to engaging and discipling teens and deploying them in missional endeavors. Relational youth ministry skills are also a must. A more detailed job description and benefits package is available
