Job Description:

JUNIOR HIGH PASTOR 

 

Current - A Christian Church is a rapidly growing church in a thriving suburb of America’s third largest city, Houston, Texas. We are blessed with a diverse community, as well as faithful and committed Elders, staff and volunteer leaders. Last year we baptized 19% of our average attendance, putting us among the top 5% of churches when it comes to evangelism/decisions to follow Christ. Much of the growth in our church involves young families with children who are quickly making their way to student ministry. There are almost 80,000 students enrolled in Katy ISD alone. Our student ministry continues to grow and we regularly see about 150 students on a weekend. This role comes at a critical time in the church’s story and is vital in answering the question, “What next big thing does God have planned for Current Students?”

 

Position Description

 

Current’s Junior High Pastor will work directly with the Executive Pastor and Student Ministry Team Leader to help students grow deeper, serve greater, give bigger, and live louder. We offer the significant opportunity to find a seat at the table with other leaders in a place where God is actively moving and impacting our community for His glory. Current’s culture provides the environment for bold and catalytic leadership to develop and flourish. You will be challenged, stretched to your God-given capacity, your passion sharpened and your potential maximized through hands-on partnership. Through it all, you will work side by side with other motivated and fun people you WANT to share life and ministry with. If you don’t have a passion for growing ministry through creativity and hard work, this isn’t the job for you.

  • Work with High School Pastor/Student Ministry Team Leader to vision cast for the future of student ministry

    and develop cohesive strategies for Junior High and High School.

  • Interact periodically with 4th and 5th grade students to help provide a smooth transition into Junior High

    ministry.
