First Presbyterian Church of Hendersonville (PCUSA) is seeking a part-time Youth Ministries Coordinator to build a youth ministry/program for its middle and high school student members.
We are looking for someone with a passionate love for young people and possesses:
• The desire to connect with young people, parents, church leadership, and the pastor to plan, develop, promote and provide leadership for education/Bible study, mission programs and fellowship activities for youth grades 6-8 and 9-12;
• The ability to commit an average of up to fifty (50) hours per month to this important ministry of the church, with an expectation of conducting not less than two youth events/activities each month;
• Creative ideas and a willingness to seek input, and to experiment to find new ways to engage the youth of the church in ministry and mission; and
• The ability to consistently teach and model God’s love, joy, and peace, leading to spiritual growth and more consistent and regular involvement among our teens and preteens.
We are a historical church of 100 to 150 regular attenders, very active in local and world missions. We have roughly a dozen middle-school students and another dozen high-schoolers, most of whom are also involved in a wide assortment of extracurricular activities: various sports, band, Scouting, drama, robotics, and more. The church has not had an individual designated to lead its youth ministry in the last seven years. The ministry has been led by a committee comprised of parents and church leaders.
The person in this position will have regular interaction with the Pastor, support from the Discipleship and Education Committee, ample financial and administrative support from the Session, and the resources (homes, meals, etc.) of many individuals within the church who are eager to support the success of a ministry for our young people.
The position will pay up to $20 per hour, based on the successful candidate’s level of experience and degree of fit for the church. If you meet these criteria and would like to know more, please contact or send a resume and cover letter to the co-chair of the Discipleship and Education Committee, Kathy Ebbert at 615-289-9915 or email@example.com.
