Job Description:
Sparta Evangelical Free Church (SEFC) is looking for a Youth Pastor to lead and reach students, not only within the church, but also in the surrounding area. We are a church located in NW New Jersey with 375 families with an average weekly attendance of 550-600. The current youth program reaches approximately 75-100 students. The current youth ministry budget is $25K+.

We are looking for an individual with experience in shepherding and discipling Jr and Sr High students by creating environments that attract their interests, provide a teaching opportunity to know Christ and demonstrate what it means to walk in His ways. The ideal candidate will know what is culturally relevant to our students and be able to apply God’s truth to their lives. He will also have experience shepherding parents in this context as well. Our next YP will be an individual who will lead with vision, passion and team building, focusing on both students and parents, as well as, nurturing a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ with all those involved in youth ministry.

The expected outcome for students graduating the SEFC youth program is that they will have a Christian world view, have a mature walk for their age, be actively involved with growing in their faith and seek to tell their friends about Jesus.
