Youth ministry is demanding, delightful time spent accompanying teenagers in both the dramatic and the routine seasons of adolescence. It is heavy on interpersonal demands.
But sustainable congregational youth ministry has to be more than high-intensity interaction with teenagers and their parents. If you are a leader in such a ministry, building a team of volunteer and staff leaders is critical to its long-term vitality.
All of this to say that the church I serve is hiring a Youth Discipleship Coordinator, someone to work with me in executing the set pieces of our congregation’s ministry with 6th-12th grade students–Sunday morning youth groups, mission trips–while also dreaming up new expressions of ministry with students for the next season of our life together.
If you know somebody who I should talk to, email me.
