Job Description:

There tons of people who have a passion for Jesus and students. Tons. They’ve got a goatee and a Taylor guitar and are ready in a moments notice to lead a group in ‘God of Wonders’. But we are looking for game changers. You know… that one in a million, team player, off the charts relational type person who can also lead. And by lead we mean LEAD. No lone rangers. No leaving people in your wake. No barging ahead and then asking for forgiveness. Leading. Can you bring your Taylor and sit underneath a tree and play 3 chords? Sure, but what we need is a passionate leader and pastor with a proven track record.

A little bit about us

We’re a multi site church. We currently have 3 campuses (soon to be 4) across the greater St Louis and St Charles counties. Do you have to come from a multi site context? No, but you would do be wise to do some homework.

We’re passionate about St Louis. One of the driving factors of us being a multi site church is that we want to see St Louis changed by Jesus.

We’re a big church. We currently average 7500 people on a weekend across campuses. Why do we mention that? We are looking for applicants that have a little bit of experience in a larger church setting.

We’re a team. We do things together... and how we work together is of utmost importance. We are one church, first and foremost. We have many locations.

This full-time position will oversee the entire youth ministry (6th-12th graders) at our Chesterfield campus. This person will have the ability to create a safe environment for students all over the spiritual spectrum to take steps on their journey with Jesus.  This includes (but is not limited to) overseeing the weekly YouthCrossing gathering, events, outreach, volunteers, and volunteer development.  This person will have a high gift of leadership and be very relational.  Creating community, culture, and trust amongst teams to further the reaches of the youth ministry is top priority. In the end their heart will beat for creating a safe environment for students all over the spiritual spectrum to take steps on their journey with Jesus.
