Job Description:
Crossview Fellowship is a growing and vibrant church in Keokuk, IA.  We are currently looking for our next team member to help us continue to reach our community. We are looking for a passionate and committed full-time Youth & Worship Pastor. We are a spirit filled, Non-Denominational church with a loving congregation of 250-300.  We intentionally seek to live out “Friends becoming Family” in our community as well as internationally.  Having an emphasis on being authentic Christ-followers who value God’s Word gives us freedom from traditions, yet, challenges us to move beyond a consumer driven existence.  We want to help the next Youth & Worship Pastor find success as we partner together to make the biggest impact for the Kingdom.  We have demonstrated our commitment to reach the youth of our community by building a 6,500 square foot youth center, called "The Edge," that houses a cafe and youth auditorium and also provides air hockey, an indoor basketball cage, pool table, carpet ball and video games. Everything a youth pastor needs to reach teens. We recently have completely renovated our Worship Center with all new ascetics and digital sound system. 
If you think you would be a good fit, then send us your resume with picture and a video clip of you performing worship and preaching to and let’s start this journey!  Below is a short description of the Youth & Worship Pastor position we are seeking to fill.

This position is responsible for leading an effective junior high/senior high youth ministry (6th-12th grade)  This individual must be a leader who is a person of vision, planning, passion and able to take initiative in leading the youth to become passionate followers of Jesus Christ.  This person should also be one who is teachable, demonstrating a “life-long learner” mentality, both professionally and spiritually.

This person is to be gifted in communication, not only in teaching the Word to youth but in communicating with parents and staff.  As a pastor, he should have a shepherd’s heart as he lovingly guides the youth and their parents through the “twists and turns” of adolescence.

This position is also responsible for leading the church in a contemporary style of worship.  This individual will plan, coordinate, and conduct all worship team rehearsals, as well as, recruit and develop talent within the church in areas of vocals, instruments, drama, dance, and audio/video tech.

Prior experience in progressively responsible ministry and worship not required, but beneficial. Proven experience in flexibility, team building, and problem solving is strongly preferred. Formal education is preferred but not a predetermining factor for the selection. The ideal candidate will have excellent vocal, musical, and technical ability and be able to develop volunteers toward that end.
