Job Description:

We are looking for someone who loves Jesus and who has a heart and calling to minister to middle school and high school students in a suburban, mobile church setting that is passionate about investing in the next generation.  Potential candidates should have proven experience in youth ministry.  They should have a heart for discipleship and raising up the next generation of kingdom builders.  They should have a heart for missions.  We are looking for someone who is a team player willing to work with other staff and volunteers in the youth program, as well as in the greater church.  We are looking for someone who is a builder, someone who can take our existing program and do what is necessary to take it to the next level.  We are really interested in finding the right fit both for us as well as for the potential youth pastor.  If interested, please send your resume to aaronyoung@risingchurch.org.

 

RISING Church was founded in 2012 as a non-denominational church that is intentionally mobile. We don't believe the church should be seen as a building, a geographical location, or place you attend. The Church is the people, the body of Christ.  You don't go to church!  You are the church!  We are intentionally mobile, meeting in a local high school and working out of our homes, so that we can better leverage our resources for greater kingdom impact.  Being mobile has its unique challenges, but two of our core values are "we will invest in the next generation" and "we will be his witnesses".  Our senior pastor was in full-time youth ministry for over 2 decades before becoming the senior pastor of RISING, and our associate pastor was in full-time children’s ministry for almost 20 years before becoming the associate pastor at RISING.  Investing in children and youth is just part of our DNA at RISING!   The truth is the less money we have to spend on a mortgage, debt relief, and building maintenance, the more money we have to invest in children, youth & missions.  When it comes to being his witnesses, we have what we call "mission partners", 14 organizations and missionaries who are doing God's work both locally and globally whom we support through prayer, finances, and mutual service. Many of these missionaries are former church members who answered Jesus' call to make disciples of all nations.


All in all, RISING is a church family that seeks to follow God's lead and direction.  We want to do everything with excellence and try new things.  We believe God desires to do greater things in us and through us than we could ever ask or imagine. We want to take every person, no matter their age, into a deeper, more vibrant relationship with Christ, and choosing to stay mobile allows us greater flexibility and resources to accomplish that.
