The Youth Pastor will be mainly responsible for the continued development and leadership of a dynamic youth ministry (Jr & Sr High School). The ideal candidate is one who has a passion for and is committed to coming alongside students to provide spiritual and visionary leadership by creating authentic environments for fellowship, worship, biblical teaching, discipleship and evangelism. This role will also partner with and equip parents to disciple their own children.
The Youth Pastor will work with our Next Gen pastoral team, deacons, and lay leaders to help our younger generation come to KNOW Jesus, GROW in their relationship with Him, and GO out into the world to make a difference.
