Santa Maria, California, United States

Denominations: Non-Denominational
Church Size: 751 to 1000
Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:
FCC is a non-denominational church located on the Central Coast in California looking to hire a Student Ministry Pastor. We have a wide open front door and the term “no perfect people allowed” would fit us pretty well. Our average Sunday attendance is well over 700 adults.

We are looking for a veteran Youth Pastor who has cut their teeth and is passionate about students. Our staff culture is not a micro management culture, making it imperative that this person has a vision for the ministry and how that vision can connect with the rest of the church. This leader will also have a voice in the direction the church is heading while working with a team of 4 other pastors. Their job description will entail: 80% youth, 20% church leadership, preaching, and planning.

What the position is: Our Student Ministry Pastor would have direct leadership over our Jr. High and Sr. High ministries. We currently have these groups broken apart and each have their own facilities. To aid in leading these ministries the leader will have two ministry assistants that they will be responsible for developing and overseeing. This is a full time position and compensation will be based on experience (package includes medical insurance for your entire family).

What they look like: The ideal candidate for us would have a master’s degree and 5+ years of ministry experience; being gifted in leadership first and teaching second. Our student ministry is too large for one person to have a relationship with every kid; we are not looking for a “Lone Ranger” but someone who has experience in team/leadership building. This person would be a team player and someone who is passionate about recruiting adults and students to come along side them to accomplish the goals of the church.
