We are looking for our next Youth and Worship Pastor at our church. Our most recent person in that job is leaving to attend seminary and leaves us with a great relationship. We have just recently changed our name from "First Baptist Church" to "Crossroads Community Church" to reflect our desire to reach wider with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are a congregation of over 250 people that values creativity, thinking outside the box, and doing whatever it takes to reach people for Christ. We are an evangelical congregation that teaches the truth of God's Word in a way that makes sense to people. Our congregation is made up of a lot of younger families who are energetic and excited for what God has for this church. We are a healthy congregation that values greatly the Word of God and the call to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Worship -- We are looking for someone who can lead a contemporary worship service. This person could lead with guitar or keyboard. Also, this person would need to have the ability to lead vocally as well. They would need to lead a band and have a solid understanding of music . We have a good band and gifted singers ready to be led by a new leader. An understanding of or a willingness to learn mediashout would be required.
Youth -- Our youth ministry consists of approximately 30+ kids with the potential for so much more. We have a youth ministry team of 5-10 people excited about serving along side a new leader in the youth ministry. The church just recently purchased a building with the hopes of converting it into a youth center in the next year or so. We are looking for someone who can cast vision for a youth ministry that reaches kids where they are and disciples them. A group of volunteers work in the youth ministry and lead small groups under our current structure. There would be much freedom to put your touch on the youth ministry as we build off of what the previous Pastor has done.

Please no phone calls at this time. We hope to fill this full time position as soon as we can.
We have a very nice 4 bedroom parsonage with utilities covered along with a cash salary that combined equals around $38,000 a year with a potential for more as the church continues to grow.
Preference will be given to those who have previous experience and are married (though neither of these is a deal breaker in the least)
A youth ministry degree or Christian ministry degree of some kind is preferred as well.
Seriously... if I was still doing youth ministry I would kill to serve in a church like this!
