  • Plan, develop and implement all aspects of a balanced student ministry in the areas of volunteer development, group building, worship, discipleship, mission, outreach and evangelism. 
  • Plan and execute programming for student meetings, activities, Bible studies, and Sunday School.
  • Plan, ensure funding, and attend annual youth mission trip.
  • Provide administrative leadership (budgeting, adherence to MinistrySafe policies, communication, social media, etc.) to Youth Ministries.
