Youth Director - Part-time
Job description - This is a part-time position of 20 hours per week. The youth director will contact youth and draw them into the youth group, meet and visit any new youth visitors, arrange activities, teach youth Sunday school, and act as the primary point of contact for youth in the church. This position will deal primarily with youth from seventh grade through high school or possibly college as well. There is a small salary that is included, but the primary benefit is the use of a parsonage.
The parsonage is on the church property and has two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, dining room, basement, fireplace, patio, and nice yard. It has just been repainted as well on the inside and new carpeting is being installed throughout as well. High speed Internet access is also included at the parsonage. It is a nice starter home for a single or a young couple.
There are also a few small tasks related to the church involved in the job.
The candidate should have the following abilities -
1. Able to work well on his/her own.
2. A real heart for children. We are looking for someone who cares about kids and does not simply see this job as a stepping stone to something else.
3. Ability to teach.
4. Good understanding of the Bible and theology. Some Bible college or seminary is preferred, but not required as long as the candidate has a good biblical foundation.
5. Experience is preferred, but not absolutely required. However, some demonstrated ability with youth is required.
6. Ability to lead and plan youth activities.
7. Preaching skills are not required, however, if the candidate enjoys preaching and is good at it, opportunities will be made available.
NOTE: For several years, the youth have largely disappeared from Lanham Grace. This means that whoever takes this position must be willing to build a youth group from almost nothing. The good news is that we are committed to a youth program and if a large number of youth and their parents are drawn to the church, this could become a full time position in the future.
Resume's can be e-mailed to email@example.com or can be mailed to Carleton Hafer, Grace Brethren Church, 8401 Good Luck Road, Lanham, MD 20706.
Job post will expire: 13-Dec-15
Are you the man who is called to serve as senior pastor for
Grace Fellowship Church of Kent, Washington is seeking the man called by God to become its next senior pastor. Current worship service attendance averages 40-50. The body has been much larger during its fifty year history and there is an opportunity to reach the many families in this suburban community to build this part of God’s kingdom. The church neighborhood is very diverse in race and ethnic origin and has a mix of single family homes and apartments.
The senior pastor position is a full-time position (the only paid employee of the church) and is the only pastoral position. The previous senior pastor retired in December 2014 (after 14 years) and has relocated to Florida. An experienced interim pastor is temporarily serving in the pulpit. Sunday school classes and the ministries for women, men and youth are led by lay church members. Four men comprise the church elder board. Church member volunteers also perform most typical administrative and worship service duties (e.g., worship music, ushers/stewards, treasury and secretarial, custodial and maintenance).
The church facility is a well-maintained property in a fully developed residential neighborhood (across the street from a public elementary school) in Kent (population 120,000), which is a suburb of Seattle, WA. The church is without debt and has operated with a balanced budget for the past ten years. Future giving will need to grow with attendance, but existing church financial resources will provide a buffer while that occurs.
Washington ranked in the bottom 10 states for regular church attendance and religious belief in a 2012 Gallup survey, and this community needs to hear the Gospel. We seek a man who will grow this church by encouraging and retaining the current church body while inviting others to join with them.
Men who have an interest in learning more about the opportunity to shepherd this flock and reach out for Christ should contact church elder and search committee member, James E. Miller at 25505 217th Ave SE, Maple Valley, WA 98038. Phone: 425-417-5853 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
