Junior High Pastor
Metro DC Area
Do you want to be part of a church team that is making a huge impact for the Kingdom of God through sound, biblical teaching and discipleship? Do you have a passion to disciple junior high students and their families? If so, this opportunity may be for
you! We are excited to be adding a Junior High Pastor to work with our student ministry team in pursuing this vision.
Located just outside of Washington D.C. in Northern Virginia, our church is a fast growing, Bible-based, non-denominational church of over 2,800 people. God’s work in the student ministry has been overwhelmingly evident. Students are connecting with one
another in small groups, studying God’s Word for themselves, and sharing the gospel with their friends. Our Junior High ministry has peaked this year with close to 200 students. Our next Junior High Pastor will, first and foremost, model a healthy and vibrant
relationship with Jesus Christ. They will share the vision of the church and be a team player who values engaging students and partnering with parents.
