Job Description:


Mountain West Church, a growing, multi-cultural church (ave. 1000 in attendance) in Stone Mountain, GA, just outside of Atlanta is looking for an energetic, upbeat, outgoing leader to serve as the Student Ministries Pastor.


The Student Ministries Pastor will help fulfill the vision of Mountain West – to meet people where they are and lead them to where God wants them to be.  You will provide leadership to all middle and high school ministries (services, small groups, retreats, mission trips, social activities, etc.). 


You must be willing and able to recruit leaders and engage them in leading ministry.


You must be okay with leading deep and wide.  We want our youth to grow spiritually, and we want the number of youth to grow.  If talking about church growth is an issue, you would not be happy here.  We set goals, work on strategy, and develop systems to not only increase the number of people joining us, but to also help individuals grow in their walk with God.  You must be able to think strategically about the growth of the Student Ministry through investing in the kids, the parents, and the volunteers.


You will work collaboratively with the Family Ministries department as we continue to develop the ORANGE style of ministry. (helpful if you know what that is)


The ideal candidate will be a college graduate; have ministry experience as a leader (preferably in a church over 1000, but willing to talk with candidates with potential); be an energetic, relational leader; and have a history of success in creating a ministry setting that relates to both churched and un-churched teenagers.


We are very interested in not just ministry competency, but also church/staff culture fit – so please include in your cover letter you personality type (based on Strength Finders, DISC, or Myers-Briggs)


Most important is character.  Please include 5 references that can speak to your character, your competency, and to your personality.



Only resumes accompanied with a COVER LETTER will be considered.


The cover letter should be personalized for this position and should answer


1 – why are you interested in this position?

2 – what is your personality type?

3 – what are the three most recent books you have read?

4 – what about you makes you stand out



Please send cover letters and resumes to


Sorry – contacting the church in other ways shows a disregard for our system and your resume will not be considered.
