Additional Considerations:

If you meet the qualifications and have experience in the responsibilities listed above we would love to talk with you!  We are looking to find a candidate who is able to love kids “right where they are” in their spiritual journey.  We need a man who has a heart that breaks for the lost and loves to share the hope of Jesus with students.  Scottsdale Bible Church highly values student ministry; we run weekly Bible studies on the campuses of three public middle schools and six public high schools, so there is opportunity for evangelism each week.  Our current junior high ministry serves approximately 100 students, but we are more committed to the heart conditions of our students and their own growth than simply adding numbers to our ministry.  Our new student facility is a tremendous resource as is our team of volunteers-these are people who love each other and love students. We have a lot of fun, but work hard because at the end of it all we will kneel before God’s throne to answer for our efforts, and it is our desire to shepherd His church in a way that will honor Him in all things.  If you want to work hard, have fun, see students come to know Jesus, and then live for Him, apply immediately and join us in changing the world for His glory!
