To All Interested Youth Ministry Candidates,
The Boulevard Christian Church, located in Essex, MD, is looking for potential candidates to fill a part-time youth ministry role within our church. Currently, our youth group is small (averaging between 6-10 students a week) but has a tremendous possibility to become much more with the right leadership in place.
Also, this position already comes with an adult volunteer team in place to help with the work. This team is made of 3 individuals currently, and they are open to any direction if it will enhance the spiritual life of our students as well the quality of our youth functions and events.
In addition the church as a whole, especially our elders, all have a strong desire to make Boulevard the church known in our area as a place for youth. We realize that the youth of today are the church of tomorrow and because of that we want to take the necessary steps to invest in their lives (and their family’s lives) now, as best as we are currently able.
So with that we are asking for any interested candidates with experience leading a youth program to contact our church for more information. This position, though only part-time currently (20 hours a week), has the real potential to develop into a full-time position within the next 12 to 24 months based upon evaluated performance and the resulting fruit produced among the youth.
For those that are interested, here are some of the expectations that we have for this position:
• Plan, conduct or coordinate, and promote the Bible teaching ministry for Jr. and Sr. High Students, including Sunday and Wednesday classes, as well as any special teaching opportunities.
• Plan, develop, coordinate, and implement an effective ministry to all Jr. and Sr. High Students and while keeping their parents and church staff involved and informed.
o This will include regular and special events designed to facilitate fun and safe experiences that allow students to develop love and service for each other and others, be engaging for both the “churched” and “unchurched” in the group, and will provide them with deepening opportunities of interest in and surrender to Christ and his Word.
• Plan and implement a consistent ministry of communal volunteer leadership. The congregation, parents, along with the volunteer leadership mentioned above should take great ownership in this ministry, and should be equipped and challenged to help spiritually form these students. Working with and coordinating volunteers to lead in this ministry is a major goal.
• Coordinate, promote, and help implement opportunities for students and their families to engage in the mission of God, becoming participants in Kingdom work. This can be done in part with the work already being done by the church as a whole and/or as independent opportunities unique for the student group themselves.
• Meet and report regularly with the elders, ministers, and youth volunteers as a team player contributing to the overall ministry conducted here at BCC.
o Share on any ongoing or future plans in relation to the coordination and spiritual formation of the youth ministry within the total ministry of the church.
• As ministry schedule allows, be dedicated to the various church-wide services, events, and functions, in order to support the overall ministry of the church and other ministers in the church.
• As needed, work with the Sr. Minister in assisting in the pastoral care and visitation when related to the youth and/or their families.
• Be involved regularly in the public lives of our students outside of church functions as much as time permits. (Attend sporting events, concerts, etc.)
• Most importantly, live the life of a disciple, continuing in personal spiritual formation, journeying with the congregation, and being open to accountability, while honoring your own family above the job.
Ideally, we are looking for candidates with university or seminary training in bible and ministry, as well as prior church ministry experience. Family ministry experience would be considered a plus. However, those with exceptional church ministry experience and no formal ministry education will also be considered.
Overall, candidates must be passionate about youth ministry and display a clear vision, demonstrating both self-control and self-motivation, exhibiting organizational and communication skills, and must have a great team attitude towards ministry.
All interested candidates who would like more information or who would like to submit a resume can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church at 410.687.8014.
