Job Description:

Pastor of Student Ministries

We are looking for an experienced youth pastor who has a passion for God and connects well with youth.  Pouring into the students in our community, both the ones who come through the doors of the church and those who have yet to connect, have been one of the hallmarks of our church body since its founding.  We are located in a small and growing town that is nestled in the suburbs of Portland, but which has its own distinct identity.  We are a community and family church that teaches the Word of God and desires to see our youth graduate discipled and equipped, knowing what they believe, with experiences that have helped make God real in their lives.


Job Responsibilities Include:

  • Developing a vision and strategy to reach and disciple youth that fits with the mission of Countryside.

  • Discipling and equipping volunteers to implement your vision.

  • Overseeing all elements of student ministries: teaching, guiding, leading, praying, and preparing the team for effective discipleship.

  • Working with the Middle School Director and volunteers, overseeing them as needed to facilitate success.

  • Providing consistent, quality communication with parents.

  • Participating in all aspects of the pastoral staff.


Preferred Qualifications:

  • Past experience leading teams of volunteers in a student ministry.

  • Competence and familiarity in providing theological guidance.  An MDiv is preferred, but not required.

  • Demonstrated ability to not only draw students in, but also to create effective discipleship and service opportunities.


Other important details:

  • This is a full time pastoral position. The complete job description can be found here.

  • Countryside’s core belief statement can be found here.

  • Compensation is commensurate with experience and will range between $58,500- $65,000 annually.
