    Stone Memorial Christian Church is looking to hire a youth director. While the person chosen will work primarily with our middle and high school students, the position encompasses the servanthood of all who seek Christ. They should be prepared to serve the church– from seniors to infants.

     

    What we believe: The Stone Memorial Christian Church believes in the deity and Lordship of Jesus Christ, the inspiration of the Bible, and the autonomy of the local congregations.

We seek the unity of all believers on the basis of faith in and obedience to Christ as the divine Son of God and the acceptance of the New Testament as the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice. Our position in the religious world has been expressed in such time-honored slogans as these: “Where the Scriptures speak, we speak, and where the Scriptures are silent, we are silent,” and “No creed but Christ, no book but the Bible, no plea but the gospel, and no name but the divine.”

     

    Characteristic Duties and Responsibilities:

    • Provide spiritual counseling and direction to youth on an individual basis.
    • Develop and implement a comprehensive youth ministry strategy (including youth volunteer opportunities, youth conferences, developing and exploring youths’ relationship with Christ and what it means to be a follower of Christ)
    • Keep parents, Senior Minister, and Church Board updated on ministry strategies, as well as plan and organize events for youth in a way that encourages partnership and involvement
    • Seek to integrate youth ministry into all phases of church life to create an intentionally intergenerational culture, striving to unite with and complement other church ministries
    • Other duties as required

     

    Expectations:

    • Participate in weekly one hour one-on-one mentoring by the Senior Minister and/or Elder(s) for encouragement, direction, support, and continued challenge for growth
    • Attend all worship services, regular programing, and special events, unless prior arrangements with Senior Minister are made
    • Grow existing youth programs while incorporating unchurched youth participants/families from the surrounding community
    • Present monthly ministry updates and goals for the coming year to the church board
    • Participate in annual/semi-annual performance review
    • Preach to the general congregation on occasion

     

    Education, experience, and salary:

    • Bachelor’s degree preferred but not required
    • Experience working with youth required
    • Salary will be competitive locally and commensurate with education/experience
    • First year of employment will be probationary, to be renewed at the one year mark with positive performance review from Elders and Senior Minister

Opportunity to Use My Abilities for God

“At KCU I was able to learn under the guidance of the best ministry professors and administrators. KCU gave me
my first opportunity to use my abilities for God. KCU gave me an opportunity to excel athletically, artistically, and
academically. But most of all, when I look back on my time at KCU, I will remember the people. I will remember the
smiles, I will remember the laughs my friends and I shared. KCU is a family and one I am very proud to be in.”
