Youth Pastor
Real Life Church

Valencia, California
Church Description *
Real Life Church is recognized as one of the fastest growing churches in America. This vibrant congregation has an average weekly attendance of more than 6,000 people, and it seems there’s always something happening on the extraordinary main campus. ‘RLC exists to reach the unchurched.’ Period. Innovative and effective programs and outreaches are designed with that in mind, so forward-thinking financial strategies and structure are critical.

Rusty George is the Lead Pastor of Real Life Church, and he has led RLC through many changes, including the purchase of land, the construction of an remarkable eco-friendly building in the middle of town, and the incredible growth from meeting in a 285-seat movie theater at the mall, to a high school gym, and to a place where, now, more than 6,000 people gather over 5 services every week. Through all the changes, Rusty maintains a resilient mission that reflects RLC as a whole: helping people find and follow Jesus.

Senior Executive Pastor, Fred Gray, says “RLC is a church that goes, and goes fast”. The Staff team is passionate, relentlessly focused, and has a blast doing life together.

Position Description *
RLC is looking for a youth pastor that has experience working in a larger church and can lead out in the jr high and high school ministry with a great team to work with. This position will be for someone that can lead other leaders to be able to take the youth ministry to the next level.

For the next youth pastor coming in, one of the challenges/opportunity will be to lead a youth group and empower other leaders to lead their groups and students. Real Life has leaders willing to serve, and it will take someone who can see the bigger picture to utilize all of those around them.

Real Life as a church wants to be a church that is irresistible for the unchurched. This plays out in every ministry and must be the focus of the next youth pastor. They must not only have a heart for the lost, but it must be the focus.

RLC is committed to the future of youth ministry, which is evident in a few key elements – first, they are starting to break ground on a new 5 million dollar youth facility. Depending on when the next youth pastor starts, they will be able to speak into aspects of the building. Second, RLC is a North Point Partner Church, which allows access, coaching and mentoring from North Point Ministries.
