Job Description:
Deer Park First Baptist Church is seeking a qualified candidate to serve as Student Minister in our community. Our Student Ministry is focused on leading students both churched and unchurched to become followers of Jesus Christ. Our Wednesday night emphasis “The Parking Lot” connects with Students from all backgrounds in a relevant way. On Sunday Evenings “The Cafe” meets in homes and seeks to encourage students to take their faith journey to the next level. Our Sunday Mornings “The Hallway” consists of large group Bible study followed by small group breakout discussions.

Deer Park First Baptist is an established church that has a congregation of approximately 500 in attendance. (For more information see Our family of faith’s mission is to encourage all people to pursue a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ. We seek to accomplish this comprehensive task by carrying out three key priorities: Connect Inwardly, Engage Upwardly and Invest Outwardly. Our family of faith consistently demonstrates a strong commitment to foreign missions, church planting and community ministry. Our current Student Minister is leaving our congregation to plant a church.

If you have a passion for Students and are committed to investing your life in Kingdom priorities…we would like to hear from you! We are looking for individuals who have experience serving in the position of full time Student Minister. One exception to this could be someone who has or is serving as a full time Associate Student Minister in a large congregation. We would hope that a candidate would place priority on team ministry both in the area of Student Ministry and in the church as a whole.
