The Crossing (Fenton Campus)
The Crossing is all about creatively connecting people all across the city of St Louis to Christ. They are looking for an outgoing Youth Pastor who loves to connect with teens and has the ability to communicate, teach and disciple. Above all, they need a pastor with a heart for ministry, motivated to see students become active followers of Jesus.
The Crossing began with a handful of folks in a living room with a common vision; to create a church where people’s lives are radically changed through Jesus Christ in radical ways. A place where they could bravely ask even the most basic questions about God without feeling out of place. While the number of people has grown beyond the limits of a living room, the vision has never strayed. The Crossing has become more than just a “place” – It’s a community that’s fresh, real, raw, alive and committed to telling an ancient story to break through even the hardest of hearts.
By using unconventional teaching methods and various art mediums and technology, The Crossing creates experiences rooted in scripture that are both culturally relevant and deeply personal. Focusing less on a “demographic” and more on a state of mind, the palette at The Crossing spans every age, religious background (or none at all) and ethnic group. They are constantly mining new ways that encourage people to explore, experience and express who God is and how His teaching can foster real change in people’s lives. The Crossing continues to see growth and expansion with three additional campuses.
The Crossing youth ministry is structured with a unique team of staff and volunteers at each campus who are all connected and resourced by a central support team (arts team – providing worship, social media, and creative direction). The main function of the Fenton Campus youth pastor is to provide leadership development to the volunteer and staff teams as well as the execution of the ministry strategy.
YouthCrossing is a fun, safe place where students can: EXPLORE God’s Word, EXPERIENCE God’s Grace, and EXPRESS God’s Love. YouthCrossing is committed to creating an environment for students to encounter Christ in a compelling way as well as partnering with parents to empower them to lead their students to Christ and help them grow spiritually.
