Job Description:

The Atlantic Evangelical Free Church is seeking a full-time Pastor of Student and Discipleship Ministries. Our goal is to find a discipleship-specialist who is passionate about helping people grow as disciple-making disciples of Jesus.

This position is focused on two areas of ministry:

(1) The primary area is ministry to junior and senior high students. The pastor will lead our student ministry by working directly with students and volunteer youth leaders. We envision that the student ministry part of the position will take between two-thirds and three-quarters of the pastor’s time.

(2) In addition, the pastor's ministry will also involve working with our senior pastor and other church leaders to build up our disciple-making ministry in another area. This part of the role is intentionally flexible. Our vision is that the pastor will devote his attention to one or two other areas of ministry that are shaped by a combination of his gifts and interests and the needs of the church. A few potential areas of concentration we have identified include worship, small groups, leadership development & children’s discipleship. This second part of the position will occupy between a quarter and a third of the pastor’s time and also includes being available to assist the senior pastor with the pastoral care and preaching ministry of the church as appropriate.

If you are passionate about disciple-making among students and want to be engaged in the broader life of the church at the same time, this could be the position for you.
