Why We Love This Opportunity
This opportunity brings with it a great organization to work with in a great location to do ministry. UCYC specializes in making it EASY and FUN for youth pastors and children’s leaders to bring their students to one of the 35 life-changing camps and retreats or run their own events at one of three camp facilities.
UCYC is entering a season of opportunity, in which collaborative leadership will be required to build a strategy to advance the camp experience for greater Kingdom impact. UCYC is connected to churches of 300 to 30,000, and from Southern AZ, to CA, to Las Vegas. The Experience Lead has the opportunity to come alongside several of these faithful and high profile churches to influence and shape their summer camp experience. The opportunity to influence and affect change in the lives of students and student ministries is a significant Kingdom opportunity.
UCYC is a non-denominational, non-profit organization, affiliated with the Independent Christian Churches throughout Arizona and Nevada. They are governed by an Executive Board of pastors and business professionals who are passionate about seeing lives transformed into the image of Christ.
The people that make up UCYC are young, talented, fun, and highly-relational. Many of them describe the environment as family. There is a deep love for their UCYC community, many of which have grown up and navigated their own faith formation throughout this special place. The staff runs lean and mean, all working in collaboration together to see the job completed with excellence. Each one works with a heart of a generalist and the focus of a specialist, requiring ‘all hands on deck’ at times. In order to be a functional part of this team you will need to be able to have fun, be casual, and have plenty of self initiative.
