The Youth Director (potentially Youth Pastor, if ordained) is called to lead a team of volunteers who will disciple the youth of our church and seek to reach our community’s youth with the gospel. The main things we are looking for are the following: (1) faith in Jesus Christ and His Word, (2) a genuine love for youth and their parents, and (3) a capable leader for our youth ministry team. Per the nature of youth ministry, the Youth Director must also genuinely enjoy spending time with youth. Further, our church’s mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by connecting people with God, each other, and ministry, and we hope to lead our youth in that same mission—connecting teenagers with God (via large group, Sunday mornings, small groups, etc), connecting youth to each other (via monthly fun events, mission trips, and serving together), and connecting them with ministry (via leadership training and giving them ownership of the ministry).

Here are the basic responsibilities for our Youth Director:

  • Work alongside our awesome youth elder to craft a vision for youth ministry — given the current state of youth ministry and teenagers’ life experience
  • Have a vision for developing our youth in the gospel and in their leadership
  • Genuinely enjoy spending time with youth, seeking them out on their own ‘turf’
  • Plan regular fun events for youth to attend and invite their friends to
  • Oversee various trips throughout the year (Summer Mission Trip to Mexico, Retreats, etc…)
  • Oversee 45-minute MS and HS youth classes between Sunday services that are engaging
  • Develop a vision for discipleship, either through typical ‘large group’ youth ministry or by developing a small-group based youth ministry
  • Develop a leadership model within the youth ministry, so that high schoolers are trained in leadership, taking ownership of things like mission trips, service, and discipling middle schoolers
  • Equip volunteers who will love and disciple youth (since you can’t do all of this on your own!)
  • Teachable, collaborative work ethic, working alongside our super cool staff
  • Ensure a safe environment throughout all our youth ministry, per our safety policy
  • Be willing to become a member of Jacksonville Presbyterian Church
  • Be able to affirm and teach biblical, orthodox Christian faith (i.e., The Essentials of the EPC)
