Davisville Church is seeking a youth pastor to influence our students toward Jesus. We have a strong history of successful and meaningful youth ministry in our area. Our church and youth ministry desire to live out a balance of loving each other like family,
pursuing Jesus passionately, and being on mission with God. Our prayer is that the next youth pastor will lead our students well in these three areas for the glory of God and their benefit. He will become part of a fun loving and committed team of employees
that strive to make disciples in our community. The job requires a humble heart, teachable spirit, dependency on God and willingness to work hard. He will be mentored by the Ministry Pastor whose goal is to fan into flame his abilities, understanding and
heart for leading the youth ministry. Currently, Davisville Church averages 70 students in its youth ministry. On a personal note, within a two-hour travel distance of the church, you can swim in the ocean, hike or ski the Pocono mountains, and visit three
major cities (Philadelphia, New York City and Baltimore). We hope you’ll join us!
