Job Description:

Lavonia First Baptist Church is a growing church in a mostly rural area of northeast Georgia.  While Lavonia is a small town, it sits strategically on I-85, one hour from Atlanta and Athens, GA, and Greenville, SC, The church has adopted a nickname of sorts for the church, The Journey, which is reflective of the church's desire to see others join them on the journey of faith in Christ as we seek God, share life with others, and serve the world around us.


 The Journey is a unique congregation for our area.  The church has simultaneous worship services, a contemporary service called the Bridge, and a Traditional service, on Sundays at 9:50am.  Preaching duties are shared between staff pastors with each service having their own worship team leadership. Small groups for all ages follow worship at 11am and the majority of youth and adult groups utilize a sermon-based discussion.


The Journey is seeking a dynamic leader who has a passion to invest into the lives of youth in our church and those yet to be reached in our community.  Our church currently has 40-50 youth in our weekly ministry.  Candidates must be willing to work in a team environment with other staff and lay leaders and be deeply connected with youth parents.  We are seeking someone who can be a leader of leaders, constantly equipping others, both students and parents, to help lead in and outside the church.


Our contemporary service, the Bridge, needs staff level leadership to plan and lead congregational worship.  The Bridge is a band-driven style worship environment untilizing multiple instruments and a more-technically driven elements.  Ability to play guitar and/or keyboard and vocally lead worship is preferred.  Candidates should also have competence in A/V systems.  This staff position will also direct our talented and growing Youth Praise Team.


Education:  Bachelor's Degree required.  Seminary preferred.


Experience:  Minimum of one year of youth leadership experience within a church.  One year of church music leadership.
