Job Description:

But just to start off… here’s two things you won’t hear at LIFEPOINTE:
“We’ve never done it that way before” & “You’ll have to ask the committee first.”

A risk taking, 8 year old non-denominational church for the young at heart, looking for the BEST possible Student Ministries Pastor we can find! Is that you?

The Student Ministries Pastor is responsible for teaching, leading, growing, developing and overseeing LifePointe’s Student Ministries (Junior High, High School and College-age).

The Student Ministries Pastor works in harmony with other staff members and ministry team leaders in fulfilling the church’s vision and mission, accepting the vital role of initiating pastoral, administrative and organizational leadership for a thriving ministry at LifePointe Christian Church.

The Student Ministries Pastor should be a team player, self-starter and possess an understanding of how to grow a dynamic student ministry. The Student Ministries Pastor should be able to demonstrate their ability to: attract and connect with students, inspire life change through outstanding teaching, recruit, engage and develop parents and volunteers, and create a culture of community and service among students.

Located in a newer suburb of Sacramento, California, LifePointe is a non-denominational Christian Church. That's it - plain and simple. We believe the CAUSE of Jesus is to give us LIFE TO THE FULLEST and we RELENTLESSLY pursue POINTING people to this abundant joy-filled living. Through a relational value, we pursue the abundant life by building GENUINE relationships with others – and developing a PASSIONATE love relationship with Jesus. We preach the word with PASSION! In theology we are biblically conservative but in methodology, our approach is culturally relevant!

LifePointe stands on the edge of exciting opportunities and anticipates God bringing tremendous growth in the near future (both spiritually and numerically). We have started the process of hiring a new Associate Pastor along with hiring this first Student Ministries Pastor. Additionally, we are actively pursuing a building in the hopes of transitioning from a “portable: set-up and teardown each week” church. Though we are portable, we have a HUB (offices) that includes a room with a kickin’ sound system already in place and the room is able to hold 50 to 80 students. (Even more if you want to jam them in!).

The position reports to the Senior Pastor and is a key part of our leadership team having input on church decisions. We are really looking for someone to develop a Student Ministry from the ground floor – being able to impart your vision and DNA into a new ministry. A gifted communicator will also have the opportunity to teach at our weekend worship services.

LifePointe is an 8-year-old church planted in February of 2003 through STADIA: New Church Strategies. ( Our website is:

DO NOT APPLY directly through!!!!!

Though you will be building a youth ministry from the ground floor, we have a group of twenty to forty Junior Highers who have come up through our KidsPointe ministry and are excited about a Youth Pastor who will pour his life into them and their friends. They are a great nucleus to build a growing, dynamic and thriving ministry to students in Elk Grove. Additionally, there is a group of twenty to thirty high school students meeting together. A small team of volunteer leaders is already in place but eagerly await a Pastor to lead and guide them.

For those of you who are athletically inclined: the Sacramento area is a great place to develop a relational style ministry through the utilization of the “outdoors.” You can utilize “athletics/sports” in a powerful way to impact student’s lives. For example, we have many people in the church who own wakeboard/ski boats who go to the many area lakes or the “delta.” We have many who also fish and love to take kids out. You would have opportunities for one-day trips or multi-day trips. Also, with the Sacramento and American rivers, there are opportunities for bike riding trips, and white-water rafting trips. Additionally, the Sierras are only an hour and a half away – providing great opportunity for backpack trips. If you are athletic in nature and see the value of utilizing sports/athletics to build into the youth, LifePointe is the place for you!
