We are not the perfect church looking for the perfect youth pastor to connect with 5th - 8th graders! We don't have a cool name like "The River" or "The Woodlands," though our campus is now on the Huron River, in the woods, on a former Boy Scout Camp. We're 180-year old Dexter United Methodist Church, we worship about 500, and God's truly up to something here...
We are into Faith-at-Home Ministry, and our children's & youth ministries have grown to where we need additional leadership in the area of 5th - 8th graders: helping kids transition between upper elementary and high school.
We take our jobs and Christ's call on our lives very seriously, but don't take ourselves so seriously. It's a good, healthy environment. The position is new here: part-time (18 hrs/wk), involved in leading students, volunteers, administration, team-building, and being a part of our Family Ministry Team. You will work with our Family Pastor and Youth Minister.
It involves Middle School Youth Group, 5th/6th Grade Awana, special events, building small groups, and planning special events, as a part of our children/family/youth ministries.
YOU: The 5th - 8th Grade Youth Minister:
• You want to spend the rest of your life making Jesus famous.
• You love God and love kids and have a good sense of humor.
• You have a sense of urgency to share the Gospel. You have a bias toward action.
• You are winsome and contagious in your own way.
• You are a leader, called to lead youth, youth leaders, and parents to change the world for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom.
• You have experienced a large family or youth ministry as a youth, volunteer leader, or staff.
