Pastor Job Description



CrossTrainers (CT) Overview:
CrossTrainers is a ministry that reaches out to the youth of Lincoln Heights and its surrounding neighborhoods with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our mission is not only evangelistic (i.e., sharing the invitation of Christ with our students and their parents) but also discipleship-oriented (i.e., training our students to model themselves after Jesus Christ and serve Him). Through this ministry, we ultimately seek to develop and train youth to become leaders in the community. To that end, we seek to minister to our CT students and their parents by participating in their lives in their homes and neighborhoods and ministering to them amidst their real-life struggles and challenges. In addition, we seek to integrate them in the broader life of a local church (YNCC or other) on Sundays to help them to grow in Christ.
