High School Pastor

We’re looking for you if you have a heart for high school students, and a proven ability to go get ‘em. If you love the great outdoors — rivers, lakes, mountains, bike trails, and sweeping vistas, Redding CA and Neighborhood Church is for you.

We are a large church (about 3,000) in small town and a great place to work, and are eager to welcome our next youth pastor.
We’re praying for a person with:

  • A high-capacity for leadership, who can oversee other staff and recruit, train, and release volunteers.
  • A philosophy that mobilizes youth to reach youth and releases them into ministry and leadership, while setting them up for success.
  • A strong desire for evangelism and growth.
  • An ability to communicate the Word of God with theological accuracy and depth.
  • A humble willingness to serve in a variety of areas as needed.
  • A teachable spirit.
  • An understanding of grace and how it delivers us from legalism.
  • A set of skills in organization and team building. Self-motivated. A go-getter. A passion to get things done.
  • Experience of working with and growing a youth group into the hundreds.
  • An ability to bring parents into the loop as much as possible.
  • A desire to minister to the whole family.
  • A passion to reach the students throughout our city with grace.
  • A track record of organizing and pulling off large events, camps, and stuff.
  • The wisdom to see the importance of connecting with students throughout the week, and pastoring them in a variety of settings.
  • A systems mindset.
  • An understanding that you’re part of a team that is part of a church. You contribute to the growth and maturity of the whole.
  • Ability to preach is a plus.
  • Ability to lead other departments is a plus.
