Youth Director - First United Methodist Church
First United Methodist Church
Full time
Midland, TX USA
http://www.vanderbloemen.com/jobs/first-united-methodist-church-youth-director-search

First United Methodist Church has been part of Midland’s history from the earliest days of the city, when a small group gathered to meet with a Methodist minister of the West Texas Conference to “organize a church.” From that humble beginning over 125 years ago, First Methodist has grown into the vibrant, multifaceted church it is today. The current facility sits in the heart of downtown Midland and is one of the last churches to remain on its original site.

First Methodist is seeking a relational Youth Director who loves students and will model a growing relationship with Jesus to them. The Youth Director is directly responsible for the oversight of all junior and senior high Youth Ministry activities, including Sunday School, Sunday evening worship (led by Youth Praise Team), and junior and senior high small groups. Events such as retreats, outreaches, and mission trips are also part of the scope of this role.

The successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to love and relate to a wide diversity of students. This candidate will have a proven track record of developing the growth of students in both numbers and depth in a way that reflects the overall vision of First United Methodist Church. The Youth Director will be directly responsible to recruit, train, and develop Youth Ministry volunteers, and the ideal candidate will demonstrate a proven track record of reaching goals through a collaborative team approach. The Youth Director will create momentum in the Youth Ministry through relationships with students, parents, volunteers, and ministry colleagues.

Midland, Texas is a city in the county seat of Midland County and a component of the larger Midland-Odessa area. The city is located in the Permian Basin in the West Plains of Texas. Midland was originally founded as the midway point between Fort Worth and El Paso on the Texas and Pacific Railroad in 1881. The economy of Midland is heavy influenced by the oil and gas industry. It is said that over 16% of the nation's oil reserves are contained in the Permian Basin and accounts for over 61% of Texas oil production.

However, Midland is not only synonymous with oil and gas, but also with high school football. The show "Friday Night Lights" was inspired by the Midland-Odessa area. The city has received national recognition as the hometown of former First Lady Laura Bush and the onetime home of former President George H. W. Bush, former President George W. Bush, and former First Lady Barbara Bush. President George W. and Laura Bush were married in the beautiful chapel at First United Methodist Church.
