Why We Love This Opportunity
This is an amazing opportunity to work in a healthy church environment reaching teenagers in a smaller town with completely open access to a local school. With free usage of baseball fields, tennis courts, a basketball gym, and dedicated space for teenagers at the church, this is a visionary’s dream opportunity!
Family Church is radically committed to emotionally healthy pastors and staff members. The word “family” is not just in the name, it really encompasses the way Family Church approaches ministry and reveals what the leadership culture is like.
Most of the leadership at Family Church has been either on staff or serving for well over a decade. The fun and enjoyable atmosphere and environment make it difficult for anyone to want to leave. With a proven track record of healthy disagreements in meetings and a team-oriented ethos, this church is the collaborative’s leader’s dream job.
The Student Pastor of Family Church will work under the supervision of the Family Ministries Director in order to build strong followers of Jesus amongst the teenagers of Family Church.
In addition to preaching and teaching ministry, the Student Pastor will regularly engage with students and parents to strengthen the “family” culture within the youth ministry. With full access to a Christian school which is a ministry of Family Church (including baseball fields, tennis courts, and a couple of basketball gyms) this is an amazing opportunity for a student pastor with vision to transform a community of young people!
This high emphasis on building relationships has strengthened the discipleship of students within Family Church. Although the numbers haven’t returned to pre-Covid attendance there is still an average of 65 students for One Night and nearly the same for weekly Home Group (small group) attendance.
