LCBC Church

Central Director of Student Ministry



Why I Love This Opportunity

Brian Aaby

Senior Associate

I’m excited to partner with LCBC for THIS ROLE because it checks so many of the boxes for a church and role that I would want– they are looking for an experienced leader who can cast and implement vision, and relationally connect with both Campus Pastors and Student Ministry Directors at each location to execute the Student Ministry in each context.

About This Organization

On the cutting edge of ministry being done as one church in multiple locations, LCBC (Lives Changed By Christ) currently has 19 locations across Central Pennsylvania. LCBC is passionate about working together in reaching and serving people in Central PA and seeing the power of the Gospel unleashed and lives transformed.  LCBC averages a combined total attendance of approximately 20,000 in their gatherings and an ever-expanding online audience.  The Manheim Campus also houses their “Central” office space.
LCBC is a non-denominational church that seeks to share the truth about Jesus in a practical and relevant way so that lives are impacted, and real-life change occurs.

The church was founded 36 years ago with a group of about 35 people meeting in a garage. Today every week the church may see anywhere from 10,000-15,000 in weekly in-person attendance, with another 8,000-12,000 watching online.

Position Description

This role is truly a leader to leaders role. In addition to setting a vision and overseeing six Central Student Ministry team members, this Director will work closely with the Campus Pastors at the 19 locations and come alongside the Student Ministry Directors for each location. The Central team casts a clear vision for the student ministry approach and ensures alignment of Central products, processes, and training that will impact each student and their family.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Exercise forward-thinking, provide direction, and set goals in every area of Student Ministry to help students move towards deeper levels of relationship with Jesus.
  • Provide expertise by staying ahead of the curve through research, networking, and anticipating the needs of Students, Parents, and our Campus staff.
  • Contribute at a 30,000-foot level while having a working understanding of the ground level within the Student Ministry.
  • Actively listen, inspire and drive others to action.
  • Meet with and regularly contribute to the broader Central Ministry Team to ensure organizational alignment with priorities and goals.
  •  Develop partnerships with and constantly vision cast to Campus Pastors and Student Ministry staff.

What a Strong Candidate Would Look Like:

  • The candidate should have at least a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent experience).
  • This person will have led in a significant setting (size and scope of leadership should be easily seen in resume/profile)
  • This leader should have a proven track record of vision implementation and testimonies of the impact felt by said vision
  • The ideal candidate is HIGHLY relational in his or her approach to leadership and can give and receive input and not be offensive or offended (team players win at LCBC).
