We love partnering with The Crossing Church and are thrilled to help them fill another Student Pastor role– this time at their Mid Rivers Campus where more than 100 students and 20 volunteers await a Student Pastor to usher them into a new phase of ministry, one where a foundation can be built around the younger students and newer leaders joining the team!
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 most hardened 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.
This pastoral position is responsible for recruiting, training, encouraging, and the leading the campus staff and volunteers in the youth ministry.
The best person for this job thinks through both a pastoral and a leadership grid. The Youth Ministry Pastor will have a dogged commitment to the spiritual health of both the youth ministry, the Mid Rivers campus, and The Crossing as a whole. The Youth Ministry Pastor must possess strong interpersonal and communication skills with the ability to lead both adults and students in ministry.
