    Why We Love This Opportunity

    Pantano is eager to welcome a new student pastor with open arms while empowering them to leverage every tool available for effective ministry to the next generation.

    Currently, the Student Ministry is recovering from a season of massive change. During COVID, the ministry saw all of its leadership change. This is a ministry that has seen consistent growth and new life through it all!

    Pantano is now seeing students and their families return to participating in the ministry. Average student attendance is 100-125 on Wednesday evenings and 50-80 students on Sunday mornings. Ultimately, they know that growth takes time and are encouraged as they see new families weekly and new volunteers joining to minister to students.

    With students attending from more than 10 different local high schools and middle schools, Pantano’s Student Ministry has always been a front door for new people in the community.
