youth are unleashed to experience God, love one another and serve others. The Youth Minister will serve youth (grades 6-12) and their families not only by investing in their lives and creating discipleship opportunities for them, but also by continuing to

ministry in a church which is worshipping 1000 on a weekend. Qualifications include at least 3 years experience in youth ministry, a college degree with post-graduate studies (preferably ordained or on track for ordination), and theological continuity with
