Job Description:

Grace Point Church San Diego is looking for a new High School Director.


A little bit about us first.


Grace Point Church is a Christ-centered evangelical church located in the Carmel Valley/Del Mar area of San Diego. If that wasn't enough of a reason to get you interested, the people are pretty great too. With a medium sized attendance (I mean the amount of people, not the size of the people) comprised of mostly families, Grace Point is a Church that values Biblical teaching and practical responses to that teaching. Blessed with a staff of Christ-loving, professional, dedicated people, Grace Point has existed in this location for over 20 years. In the heart of a bedroom community, Grace Point exists to serve the families and community that we are fortunate enough to exist within.


A little about the Job.


Our youth ministry is nothing more or less than a beautiful team of dedicated people who are committed to the cause of not just showing students how Christ "fits in" to their busy lives, but why He ought to be the center of them. Three major High Schools are within rock throwing distance of Grace Point. (I am speaking in hyperbole, unless you can throw a rock about a mile. But still, about 5000 HS students go to school within 1 mile of Grace Point! That is a lot according to math.) We have an amazingly enthusiastic female High School associate, a faithful and committed Jr High Director, and a talented and faithful youth worship team. This job would involve working alongside all of them while implementing the leadership that you bring to the High School arena. It involves all the things you expect it to; weekly teaching, small group preparation and implementation, event planning, camps, trips, budget planning, service opportunities, etc, etc.


A little about you.


You are not new to this. We are an established Church that is looking to hire someone that comes with a strong background in youth. You excel in the giftings of teaching, organization, leadership, and grace. You are not looking for a stepping stone job, but a place to commit and invest for the long haul. You are creative. You love Jesus. You actually love Jesus. You are willing to adjust what you have seen work to a different community, as this one offers unique challenges, as they all do. You are educated. You are a person. This is a full time job and we are looking for someone that will find ways to ever increase the influence that this Church can have in a very lost community. You are not too serious to connect with. You are serious enough to offer real guidance. You are the right fit.


This is one of those great jobs that comes along rarely on these sites. We will be selective. Our current High School Director (who is the one writing this) is moving back to his home town at the end of October. He (I) am leaving on the best of terms. I have loved being a part of this community and am committed to making sure that these kiddos whom I love are not left with someone who isn't the right fit.
