Salary and Benefits: The position will pay up to $31,600/year. Additional benefits include Dental and Medical Insurance, Long Term Disability Insurance, Term Life Insurance, two (2) weeks annual paid vacation, and opportunities for professional development.
Purpose: Annapolis EP is looking for a full-time female youth assistant to join its youth ministry staff.

The Female Youth Assistant is generally responsible for working with the Youth Minister to lead and direct the church’s ministry to our High School students and their friends - particularly focusing on the discipleship of girls. Applicants must be mature Christians who are firmly planted in the Gospel. The position is best fit for a woman who feels called, or is discerning a call to a career in ministry 


Overall Responsibilities:

Discipleship (60-70% Time): Applicants should demonstrate strong interpersonal skills as they seek to grow, discipling relationships with high school students and recruit and encourage adult volunteers to use their gifts to shine Christ’s love into the lives of the students of AEP. The Applicant should also be able to support Sunday School and high school Bible Studies that promote growth toward spiritual maturity - teaching the foundational truths of the faith, helping students to become “self-feeders” from God’s word, challenging students to wrestle with the deeper doctrines that strengthen assurance of salvation and equip for faithful living, leading, and serving into adulthood.

  1. Foster a welcoming environment for students, helping to build positive peer-to-peer relationships in the senior high...
  2. Develop a “core group” of female student leaders, aimed at training and equipping them to do Gospel work.
  3. Model an evangelistic lifestyle by being available to contact churched and unchurched students.
  4. Support Youth Minister in promoting community between the entire Church and the senior high students.
  5. Facilitate involvement in service projects or short-term mission projects that engage students in cross-cultural settings.
  6. Assist Youth Minister in recruiting, equipping, and supporting others to teach and lead in the Youth Ministry, focusing on ministry to girls. Build relationships with female leaders (parents, summer interns, etc.), taking time to connect with, encourage, and empower them.
  7. Lead Bible Studies and teach in coordination with Youth Minister.


Administrative (15-20% Time): An outgoing, welcoming, and warm personality is important, as is the drive to collaborate as an essential part of the youth ministry team. A strong background in event planning is desired, and organization and administrative skills are essential.

  1. Support periodic retreats and camps for students to “come away” and be challenged toward spiritual growth and service.
  2. Assist Youth Minster with activities that encourage outreach, evangelism, and service as a lifestyle for our youth. 
  3. Coordinate all event registration for high school.
  4. Coordinate Welcome Table for various events.
  5. Assist in tracking attendance at senior high events.
  6. Work with Church Database Manager to maintain youth database – adding new students, ensuring accuracy over time, categorizing by groups and subgroups.
  7. Manage high school event calendar – making sure to integrate with church-wide calendar. Book spaces for gatherings and events.

Communications (15-20% Time): The Youth Ministry is a vital part of the overall church ministry, and seeks to conform to the current policies, goals and strategies being used to connect with the Community. The Applicant will be the person responsible for working with the Church Communications Coordinator to manage the youth ministry’s communication efforts.


  1. Coordinate all social networking platforms.
  2. Oversee ministry web page.
  3. Oversee all print and digital projects.
