Job Description:


The student ministry at Parkview Christian Church is in a season of exciting transformation. In our relentless pursuit of a strategy that will continue to reach more and more students for Jesus, we've made a significant paradigm shift to our student ministry model. We're moving away from a traditional approach and embracing a new plan that we trust will help us engage a generation of students living in a post-Christian culture.


Our new approach places a high value on serving, small groups, and gatherings. We are now launching the search for a high-capacity leader who will serve as the central director of our student ministries, overseeing an amazing team that leads Junior High, High School, and College ministry across all Parkview Christian Church campuses.


The Central Director/Pastor of Student Ministries MUST be a visionary and innovative leader. Qualified candidates will have a proven track record of ministry growth and be passionate about reaching students who've not crossed the line of faith. This person will be required to constantly evaluate the ministry model and is expected to reinvent it as necessary. Our goal is to reach students for Christ and Parkview is a leadership environment which embraces innovation to ensure a consistently cutting-edge approach to ministry. 


If leaders are gifted as conceptualizers, prototypers, implementers, refiners, and/or managers, this position requires a person whose gifts are weighted toward conceptualizing/protoyping/implementing. 


Parkview Christian Church is an exciting, growing, multi-site church with campuses in Orland Park, Homer Glen, and (opening Christmas of 2016) New Lenox, IL. There’s no doubt that God is doing something extraordinary in our midst. More than just numeric growth, however, we’re seeing lives radically transformed. Parkview is a place where anyone - regardless of their story - can take their next step toward Jesus.


Interested candidates should submit a resume, recent photo, any available work samples (demo reels, etc), and any other helpful or pertinent materials to robin.toland [at] parkviewchurch [dot] com. Please include "Central Students" in the subject line.


Please DO NOT use the "Apply Now" button at the bottom of this page. We will not follow up with candidates who do.


Parkview Christian Church is committed to creating a diverse environment and welcomes all qualified applicants regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, or economic status.
