Youth For Christ is seeking energetic leader with a heart for youth evangelism. We are seeking entry level candidate to implement our Campus Life strategy at a local high school campus.
Campus Life is YFC’s ministry strategy for delivering the Gospel to a high school or middle school campus. The strategy utilizes a team of adult volunteers, who under the direction of a Campus Life director, create non-Christian friendly programming. The
weekly ministry includes a weekly large group (club), contacting, building times (hanging out with kids in a variety of activities), appointments, small groups, student leadership, trips and events. Similar to a large local church youth ministry but usually
a much more diverse student population is involved. High school clubs typically meet at an off-campus site near the school and middle school clubs meet on campus before the first bell.
Campus Life’s goal is always to have a majority of unchurched students. This creates the culture that we desire to provide. Campus Life’s approach can best be described as relational and conversational. Campus Life staff are on their campus literally every
day of the week. Lunchroom visits, attending ballgames and hanging out around campus before and after school are mainstays in our strategy. We go where students are and build trusting relationships.
The director’s role is to exemplify the type of Christ-sharing relationships we want to build and recruit a team of volunteers, typically college age, to implement Campus Life at a high school and feeder middle school.
A Campus Life director must be able to connect with parents, school administrators, business leaders and churches. So the maturity to build relationships with adults is essential as well.
We are seeking a strong leader who is looking for a place to serve for three plus years.
