Youth Director - USA South (TX) (#231712)

 

We are working with a growing Methodist Church in Texas that is searching for a Youth Director. The church is deeply committed to youth ministry, and it desires to see students formed into deeply devoted disciples of Jesus. Congregational support, resources, and facilities abound.

 

Purpose:

  • To be an example of one who has experienced the love and grace of God through Jesus, and therefore lives his/her life according to the values of the Kingdom of God through the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • To nurture 7th through 12th grade students toward wholeness in Christ (Discipleship)

  • To incarnationally reach out to the unchurched youth of our community (Evangelism)

  • To encourage youth in their spiritual growth through spending time together and having fun (Fellowship)

  • To impact the church, community, and the world through intentional acts of kindness and service (Mission/Outreach)

 

Responsibilities:

  • Overall structure and implementation of the youth ministry (7th-12th grades)

  • Pray for students in an intentional and ongoing sort of way

  • Empower and equip the youth for ministry in the church, community, and the world

  • Attend weekly staff meetings and maintain open lines of communication with the pastor and the staff

  • Be diligent with time management, including taking two days off per week

  • Participate in Sunday morning worship

  • Recruit adult mentors/sponsors who are actively engaged in the overall youth ministry

  • Train, equip, and encourage Sunday School Teachers and youth leaders/sponsors

  • Maintain discipline and order at all youth activities

  • Be a good steward of the church facilities

  • Be a team player that maintains reconciled relationships with all staff members

  • Be able to laugh often and not take yourself too seriously. Ministry at this church is going to be fun.

 

Qualifications

  • Possess a deep, abiding, and growing love for God. We believe that the best thing we can offer to others is our own transforming self into the likeness of Jesus.

  • A love for God’s Word, a desire to live it out, and the ability to teach it to the students

  • Able to relate to the parents of students. A big part of the position will be empowering parents to take responsibility for the spiritual growth of their kids.

  • Commitment to clear lines of communication open with parents to keep them informed

  • Responsible and experienced in leadership and able to relate to the youth through humor, fun, creativity, respect, and trust
