Job Description:

Due to our growth and the potential for more growth we are seeking a man to serve as an assistant pastor to help meet our growing needs.  Specifically, our current need is coming along side of a team of existing youth leaders and working with our youth.  This requires setting a vision, organizing strategies and overseeing the youth ministry.  Additionally, there is a need to assist in corporate worship and help as time allows with pastoral responsibilities. 

This person then must show strengths in working with people, developing leaders, and have a love for youth.  He should be willing to grow with us as a church as other areas for leadership development and growing believers become apparent. 

This position should be viewed as dynamic as areas of responsibilities will likely change over time.  We expect a successful candidate to have the ability to adapt, grow, and assist in developing leaders, and working with people where needs exist.  This would likely include but not be restricted to worship, outreach, preaching, missions, and mentoring/discipling.  We are committed to training, supporting, developing and mentoring this individual in areas necessary to carry out his responsibilities and growth as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ for the advancement of His kingdom!
