Leadership responsibilities include planning, administering, coordinating, supervising and evaluating comprehensive Student Ministries. The Student Ministries Pastor provides supervision, direction, and guidance to the full time Middle School Ministry Director and a part time Administrative Assistant.

Our Student Ministry pastor will be expected to develop a cohesive student ministry, not youth group.

He is expected to create ministry events and activities year round including camps, retreats, outreaches, and summer opportunities.

He will be responsible for pastoral care of students, parents, and volunteers.

The student facility ‘The Zone’ is equipped with a worship space, lounge and café, game room, and information area. Our student Sunday services run concurrent with our 75 minute adult services on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings and include a gathering time, worship time, teaching, and small group discussion. The pastor will be responsible for all facets of the weekend services and works in partnership with Cornerstone’s Worship Pastor to create the live worship experience. The pastor will work closely with the Middle School director in the care and oversight of all student ministry volunteers.

Cornerstone Ministries is a healthy, growing independent non-denominational evangelical church in western Pennsylvania approximately 40 minutes east of Pittsburgh. Current weekend attendance averages 1600 at three weekend services. Cornerstone has thriving children's and student ministries. Our mission is to 'build lives and families on lasting values'.
