leading worship (for weekly youth gatherings)
Recruiting, training and practicing with the youth worship band
Developing student leadership
Running youth social media
Administrative Duties (youth attendance, phone calls, database updates, etc)
Organizing mission opportunities
Our Current Ministry:
We currently have over 100 active youth in our ministry. Sunday nights we see about 100 youth for dinner and small groups and on Wednesday’s we see around 35 youth for a lesson, activity, and games. We have discovered there is a great need for worship in our ministry and we will be starting a service on Wednesday nights. Because of our need to instill a heart for worship (not just music) in our youth and our need for more people to invest in discipling our students we have opened up a position for this Associate Youth Pastor.
Wednesday nights will be our Youth Worship service. The Associate Youth Pastor will be in charge of leading worship and recruiting, training and practicing with the youth worship band.
Sunday nights are dinner and small groups. Our youth pastors will plan this time, equip our volunteers, host the event, and engage youth during our dinner time.
MAC Track: We have 30 youth who are in this ministry who have either felt called to ministry or they are open to working in a ministry related career. We meet once a month to hear speakers, do a service project, or provide training. Youth pastors also meet with our MAC Track small groups as a way of discipling and encouraging students in their faith.
