360 Church is impacting thousands of lives in Sarasota and around the world by pressing beyond ordinary relationships to reach extraordinary Kingdom results. 360 Church was planted in Sarasota, Florida, in June, 2006 with Steve McCoy as the founding pastor, his wife, Carrie, and 6 other people.

The heart of 360 Church is impact lives in Sarasota and around the world. The mandate of 360 Church is to press beyond ordinary relationships to reach extraordinary results.

Position Description

360 Youth is a high priority for the leadership of 360 Church. With a well-funded budget and high level of support from other departments in the church, the desire is for middle and high school students to be known, discipled, and engaged in the overall life of the church.

From combined, Wednesday night services (50 – 60 in attendance) and a high emphasis on small groups, to a host of activities and events throughout the year, teenagers are impacted by the truth of God’s word and love. Each Sunday morning, there is also opportunity for middle school students to gather during the adult services (10 – 15 in attendance).

The Student Pastor gives oversight to middle school and high school expressions—with the help of a part-time staff coordinator directly serving the middle schoolers.

The sky really is the limit for the youth ministry in terms of vision. With a brand-new space being renovated directly across the street primarily for use of the youth ministry, the student pastor will have high influence on its use and function. A system to track student attendance, assimilate and follow up with first time guests, and regular training for volunteers is highly desired.
