Pastor of Student Ministries
Christ Community Church
Christ Community Church’s foot-print in Greeley, CO is nothing short of remarkable and a beautiful expression of Jesus’ Church living out her mission in a community. There is clarity of overall vision and direction among CCC’s leadership team. Their dedicated staff embodies a faith-filled, entrepreneurial ethos that is shaping the culture of Greeley with an externally-focused emphasis and an obvious missional impact that has made CCC a vital asset to the revitalization and revival of the city itself. Because Christ Community Church places a high value on staff culture, their next Student Ministry Pastor must be a ‘hand in glove’ fit with the way CCC connects authentically with its community. This is an opportunity for a proven Student Ministry leader who has a high EQ, balanced with a strategic gift-mix to help their student ministry thrive.
Christ Community Church is a vibrant, unique and grace-filled church associated with the Evangelical Free Church of America. This is a community of authentic people with tangible faith expressing itself in love to their neighbors. Creativity and innovation are abundant in their culture of ‘out of the box’ thinking. Not only is CCC led by quality leadership and staff, but they are also loved, taught, challenged and shepherded by a gifted and invested leader in Lead Pastor, Alan Kraft.
At CCC, there is a focus on sound, biblical, relational and truth-based teaching along with an openness to responsive, Spirit-led worship. Strategically, leadership has intentionally focused on disciple-making in the context of community, encouraging and equipping people of all ages to live according to God’s Word and respond in Word-based living during the week. Because of this, the commitment and dedication of CCC’s core people runs deep with a missional focus and alignment of resources both locally and globally. Today, CCC is poised for continued growth. With a combined weekend worship attendance of more than 2,000, it is a shining light in their city and around the world.
The Pastor of Student Ministries will join the NextGen staff at CCC and the Senior Leadership to carry out the vision of Christ Community Church. This role will provide leadership and ownership of shared responsibilities to reach and disciple middle school and high school students in the community.
The ideal candidate will:
- Be a passionate pursuer of God and model a lifestyle of listening to Him first and foremost as He leads the church forward in fulfilling His purpose.
- Demonstrate an ability to develop, equip, and mobilize volunteers to create worship experiences, eGroups, and missional opportunities for middle & high school students to embrace the gospel, experience the Spirit, and engage in mission.
- Create and foster a transformational context around emerging leaders involving a relationship with God and relationships with a community of disciples.
- Work to build relationships and facilitate collaboration for effective ministry to students, parents, and the wider community.
- Maintain the highest level of personal integrity, exhibit self-control and live a life above reproach.
Together with all the pastors, the Student Ministry Pastor will help lead Christ Community Church and reproduce its DNA to Embrace the Gospel, Experience the Spirit, and Engage in Mission.
