Church, Ministry
Student Minister
Mount Carmel Baptist Church
Full time
Chapel Hill, NC USA

A team member who's primary focus will be on strengthening our college ministries and youth ministries.  

The position requirements and job description will vary to some degree based on the candidate who is called.  
Our goal is to seek to know the minister first as opposed to providing a job description and forcing all ministers into a predetermined formula.  

With that said we acknowledge that there are focus areas for each team member on our ministry staff.
For this particular position those for areas are College Student Ministry (mostly UNC) and Youth Ministry (grades 6-12).
A more detailed description of duties, expectations, and requirements exists and is provided to candidates in advance of interviews.

Beyond those focus ministries (college and youth) this minister's personal gifts and passions will play a big part in influencing the formation of a more detailed role.  We want to hear from you, to learn your story, your passion, your strengths and weaknesses, so that we can create an environment that is conducive to your success and growth as a minister.

If your ministry gifts/interests/passions are more discipleship related, then we hope to affirm that...whether that be a chance for you to create curriculum, give leadership to small groups or Sunday school, or connect the church with outside resources, spiritual retreats, etc.

If your gifts/interests/passions are in missions, then we want to open doors for those gifts to be empowered...which could be leading mission groups, coordinating mission projects, forming partnerships with local missions, hosting forums the educate the church about missions, etc.  

Mount Carmel acknowledges that each minister is unique and we believe that growth and formation of the church is greatly impacted by ministers that are excited, inspired, and encouraged.
