These responsibilities require that the Youth Pastor seek parental feedback, be a leader and mentor more than a friend, relate to all ages in the Youth Program, develop and work with a team of adult volunteers, and pursue continued personal training.

Would be responsible for worship planning with the Pastor and leading music (Sunday morning and special services).  Requires that the Worship Pastor work well as a member of a team, arrange accompaniment and special music, maintain audio/visual equipment, and promote the blended music style.
