Job Description:

The ideal candidate would be someone who has a background in youth ministry and is looking to broaden their focus to family ministry.  The Family Pastor will be a part of the pastoral staff with the primary task of leading the family ministry at the Town Center Campus while also providing leadership for youth ministry.  

Family Ministry at Town Center Campus
Work with the team leaders of this campus to create an environment where people feel connected and valued.  All our pastors are team leaders, builders, and equippers.  The Family Pastor would focus on the teams at Town Center (first impressions, children, worship, cafe, logistics) encouraging and leading them as they minister to people.  The Family Pastor would also be able to provide biblical guidance/counseling for marriages, single parents, divorce care, blended families, that reach out to the church for help.  Being able to teach at one or both campuses on Sunday mornings from time to time is a plus but not a must.

Youth Ministry
We currently have a team of 15 adults that lead the youth band, youth small groups, rotate as lead teachers on Sunday nights, and plan activities.  The Family Pastor would be someone with a youth ministry background that could lead and encourage this team.  This would involve being a part of the teaching team rotation and providing vision to continue to create exciting and accepting environments for students to get connected.

About the Church
Essential is the kind of church staff that everyone hopes to be a part of in ministry, but few get to experience. We are just 7 years old as a church and have experienced growth every year.  This past year we started our second campus in the heart of Virginia Beach where 7 out of 10 people in the community around it are not connected to a church.
