Job Description:

Access Church is looking for a Youth Pastor to join our team.  We are a multi-site church of around 550 people, with locations in North Branch and Isanti, both about an hour north of the Twin Cities.  At Access Church, we strive to stay relevant with our methods to draw people into a growing relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  Rather than run from culture, we have chosen to harness it to connect with people and show them God's timeless truths.  While we look un-traditional on purpose, we believe in and maintain a conservative theological position based on what the Bible teaches.  Please visit our website,, to get a better feel for who we are.


A good candidate for the Youth Pastor position will have a calling from God for youth ministry, not just looking for a "church job".  They will be highly self-motivated and enjoy the opportunity to build a ministry from the ground level up.  They will be a team-player and have experience, either paid or volunteer, in a growing youth ministry.  This position is also a "dual-role" opening, meaning that they will have other responsibilities beyond youth ministry.  Applicants should have other skills to bring the table - graphic design or video editing would be extremely beneficial, though we would consider other talents/abilities.



-develop and implement a vision for the ministry that is in line with our church

-establish separate weekly services for middle and high school students

-establish small groups (or similar) for students beyond weekly services

-recruit and lead volunteer teams (both student and adult) to build the ministry

-plan/attend additional events as needed (camps, conventions, outreaches, etc)



-learn Access Culture (vision, values, etc)

-attend weekly staff meetings

-attend all weekend services (locations can vary)

-attend all church-wide meetings (annual business meeting, member meetings, volunteer meetings)

-champion and defend our church and all involved

-be self-motivated and look for opportunities to grow (seminars, conferences, books, etc)



-prior experience in growing youth ministry

-additional ministry skills beyond youth

-degree is preferred, but not essential

-loves working on a team

-anxious to learn and is teachable



This opening is for a full-time position (40-50 hrs/wk) with benefits; salary negotiable with experience.  Applicant must be willing to move within 10-15 miles of one our campuses to be considered.  Spouses, if applicable, will also be brought in along the process.
