Job Description:

We presently have a need for a Youth Pastor.   We are located in Mt. Carmel, IL. We are Pentecostal in faith similar to the Assemblies of God.   We have a church of about one hundred and fifty people where God is moving and is currently bringing us to a new level in Him.  We have a vision to reach our city of seven thousand people.   This in the past has been a part time position. I am convinced the right individual could evolve to full time.   I have seen the right staff member in a neighboring church in our city make a tremendous impact and more than pay their salary.


Our church is well established with roots dating back to the early 1900’s.   Mt. Carmel was founded by three Methodist ministers with the intent to make it a Christian community. Our vision is to see Mt. Carmel return to those Christian values.  The church maintains a middle of the road between charismatic and traditional Pentecost.


We live in a small community forty miles north of Evansville Indiana.  Mt. Carmel is a very close knit community with access to shopping minutes away.   Our facility seats 350 people and we believe God will fill the house.   Across the street from our church is an activity building for youth equipped with basketball and volleyball equipment.  We would like to see this building open for junior and senior youth activities on a regular basis.  We also have a smaller facility for small-group meetings.


The candidate would need to have a desire to work with youth and young couples.  Be able to organize and direct activities, Bible studies, etc. for teens and young couples. 


We are involved with a homeless shelter, a food and clothing distribution center, life recovery, and other community outreach projects, that has changed the landscape of our church.  There is a passion to change our city and not just have church as usual. 


Housing and utilities will be part of the compensation.

Please contact:  Pastor  Tony Hodgson
