First UMC Tupelo is one of the oldest and largest United Methodist Churches in Northeast Mississippi, tracing its heritage all the way back to 1832, when some of the earliest settlements of “people called Methodists” first occurred in Mississippi. In 1899, the sanctuary of First UMC Tupelo was built, which sits on a beautiful downtown campus. What began with just nine devout souls at First UMC Tupelo has now grown into a membership just shy of 2,000, with three services every weekend; two traditional, and one contemporary. With a mission to be a people ‘marked by faith, community and mission,’ First UMC Tupelo is a congregation that is passionate about serving the growing needs of its community.

 

The primary responsibility of the Youth and College Director at First UMC Tupelo is to maintain and nurture a personal relationship with Christ and be a positive and living example for the students and congregation. The successful candidate will be someone whose heart ‘bleeds’ for students that are unreached and the furthest away from God and the local church. The Youth & College Director will lead with the development of new and strategic programming that will impact surrounding schools, engage with parents and families, as well aid in the growth of college student engagement within the ministry of First UMC Tupelo.

 

While education is not a predetermining factor in the selection of a new Youth & College Director, the successful candidate must be one who has demonstrated several years of development and oversight in full-time youth and student ministry. An Associate and/or Bachelor degree from an accredited university or bible college may also be preferred. 

 

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of working in a ministry setting that is both rural and multi-generational. The candidate will have had experience working as an effective leader of a large ministry team, with the responsibility of providing vision and discipleship for high school students, college students, and ministry team in a large church. The successful Youth Director candidate will be familiar with the United Methodist Church and its Wesleyan approach and philosophy to Christian discipleship and formation. The Youth & College Director must be a ‘magnet’ for students and their parents, and sees this ministry as a calling, and not a stepping-stone.
