Youth Director / Youth Pastor
Ends: As the Youth Director embraces our vision for “proclaiming Christ’s glory to transform lives”, 7th-12th graders in the FPC community will hear the taught/preached word & experience discipleship modeled through intentional relationship efforts from the Youth Director along with staff helpers and volunteers involved in the FPC Youth ministry.
Means: Ends are achieved predominantly by engaging in the duties & responsibilities of the Youth Director position including, but not limited to: large and small youth group gatherings and events, Sunday school, Sunday evening Youth Group, connecting with students relationally and intentionally throughout the week/weekend, organizing/overseeing mission-oriented, evangelistic and spiritual growth trips for youth, staying connected to youth within the FPC community and cultivating gospel partnerships with parents of involved youth.
Reporting: The Youth Director reports to the Executive Director. The Youth Director will oversee any additional youth staff, interns and volunteers. The Youth Director will work with the Youth Committee.
Structure: The Youth Director will have office and work hours for all Sunday and Wednesday youth activities as needed to achieve ends stated above. Additional work-hours Tuesday – Friday (and various Saturdays) are expected and performed for planning, communication and intentional relationship building and discipleship to youth in both “on” and “off-campus” capacities. (This includes attending sporting events, visiting the youth in their respective schools, taking students to coffee/lunch, etc.) Total estimated hours worked during the week would be 40-50 hours.
Youth Activity Center: The Youth Director is the building captain of the Youth Activity Center (YAC). This property is a major instrument he uses to accomplish much of the ministry to his students. Therefore, it is in his care to oversee and look after the property in such a way as to maximize the ministry that happens through it. He is the building captain and will ensure its overall care, communicating with necessary parties (ie Custodian/Diaconate Property Chair/Executive Director) clearly to achieve this end.
The Youth Director will not:
- allow Youth Activity Center (YAC) to fall into prolonged disrepair
- exceed the approved Youth Ministry budget
- put himself in compromising situations with any youth students or staff helpers
- A heart to build an evangelistic relationship with non-believing students
- A heart to shepherd believing children to grow in their faith in Jesus
- A shared passion for the vision of FPC especially in the area of discipleship
- A minimum commitment of five years
- A strong belief in our confession of faith (WCF)
- The Youth Director and family (if applicable) will be deeply involved in community life at FPC
