Job Description:

Milestones Church in Spartanburg, SC, is looking for someone to serve in the dual role of leading our Worship Ministry and Student (Youth) Ministry. We are a small non-traditional church with conservative values. ( Sunday morning is our only worship service each week. Our students typically meet on Wednesday nights. We have a great staff and strong teamwork, and the “right fit” to fill this position on our team is just as important as competence in the ministry areas.


We realize this dual role is not common in churches in our area. We also realize it will be rare to find someone with equal passion and equal giftedness in these two areas. However, we believe and are trusting God that the person for us is out there!


If you have a desire and a call to serve God in the local church, and you have a heart for middle school and high school students, AND you also have a heart to lead the church in authentic worship, please read on and consider sending a resume. However, if you are passionate and gifted in one area, and you casually feel like you could “do the other area,” and you would have that kind of halfhearted attitude about it, please do not respond. You would be wasting your time and ours.


We are looking for the following qualities in this position:


Student (Youth) Ministry

  • Heart for God
  • Very personable and relational
  • Leader
  • Creative
  • Extrovert
  • Relationship builder with teenagers, parents, and volunteers
  • Willingness to go where students are and get on their turf
  • Spouse who is a teammate and shares vision and passion for students


Worship Ministry

  • Heart for God
  • Heart to see congregation worship authentically
  • Leader
  • Personal fire and hunger for God that comes across before a love for music
  • Creative
  • Musically competent
  • Able to play a musical instrument
  • Able to chart songs using Nashville system
  • Able to select songs that fit the text/message



In both roles we place a premium on being a team player. We want someone who understands and buys into our vision as a church and does not want to lead the church otherwise.


The Student Ministry will require more time than the Worship Ministry, at least initially.


If we were financially able to make one of these staff positions full time and the other part-time, we would choose Student Ministry as a full-time position. The Worship Ministry is not as demanding in terms of hours required.


If interested, please send cover letter telling why this opportunity is appealing to you, resume, AND picture to
