Pastor of Student Ministries
Hope Community Church
This is a great time to become part of God’s story as the Pastor of Student Ministries at Hope Community Church! Hope Community Church has grown significantly in the last ten years, averaging around 600 people during Sunday morning services. Because Hope Community Church’s culture and ethos reflect an understanding of the people in the area, they will continue to grow and have a tremendous impact on the region.
Hope Community Church is a vibrant, unique and grace-filled church associated with the Converge Worldwide Church—a movement of over 1300 churches working to help people meet, know and follow Jesus. In 2006, under the direction of Lead Pastor John Anderson, Community Baptist Church became Hope Community Church and finished construction of a new $1.2 million home. 2016 saw the completion of phase 2 of Hope’s new building with a $2 million addition of a family center, new offices, and classrooms.
Today, Hope Community Church continues to thrive in a season of healthy growth under Pastor John. The church is made up of people who want to love and follow Jesus as a way of life. Not wanting to get stuck in traditions, they endeavor each week to share the unchanging message of Jesus in culturally relevant ways. Hope’s reputation is overwhelmingly positive and easily recognized because of their presence in the community and passion for serving their neighbors.
Hope Community Church’s Pastor of Student Ministries will build and lead a thriving High School and Junior High student ministry. They are looking for an outgoing pastor who loves to connect with teens and has the upfront ability to communicate and teach. The ideal candidate will have had proven leadership and supervisory experience that will translate into motivating a high capacity team of volunteers. Above all, they need a pastor with a heart for ministry and motivated to see students become active followers of Jesus.
This key staff member will report to the Lead Pastor and possess the desire and eagerness to be mentored and to grow in their Youth Ministry, preaching, and communication skills. Opportunities will be made available to bring the right candidate onto the weekend teaching team, with increased responsibilities and growth as a key member of the pastoral staff. The Pastor of Student Ministries will be highly considered for ministry opportunities and leadership roles based on performance as Hope Community Church grows and expands into new communities.
