Job Description:
City Church has an open position for a part time (20 hours per week) Student Ministries Director. City Church launched on Easter 2005 and is the eighth daughter church of Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie, MN. City Church is located in southwest Minneapolis, MN. Our purpose is to Love God, Love Others. We are committed to honoring God in worship, sharing the hope found in the message of Jesus Christ, developing a community of love, serving as a transforming presence in our community and becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

City Church is a multi-generational congregation with a core of families with young children and middle and high school students. Each week around 275 (adults, children and youth) worship in two morning services. City Church currently worships in an elementary school and leases space for offices and weekday ministry.

City Church began Student Ministries in the fall of 2006. Since that time we have built a core of fifteen middle school and ten high school students who meet on Sunday mornings, Sunday evenings and periodically for social activities and service opportunities. In June, another eight fifth graders will be moving up to join the middle school group. We also believe there is a significant opportunity to fill a gap by reaching out to students in the area’s middle schools and high schools, many of whom are not currently connected to a vital student ministry program in the community. The current staff includes ten volunteers

City Church is looking for a youth leader who is passionate about connecting today’s students in a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and will be able to enhance our existing ministry. This leader should be able to communicate well with middle school and high school students as well as their families. Crucial to the position is developing ministry programs as well as recruiting and training volunteers. This individual should be a self–starter who can continue the development of the ministry by connecting with students and other key contacts in the community. They should also be a team player who will work well with other City Church staff that includes the Pastor, Children’s Director, Worship Pastor and Community Life Director.
