Youth/Student Ministries


North Central District C&MA

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR - An authentic and vital relationship with Jesus as Lord and Savior with observable fruits of the spirit demonstrated in this person’s life. - Demonstrated passion for children’s and/or student’s ministries. - Alignment with Parkside vision as it relates to church staff focusing on ‘equipping the saints’ for ministry as opposed to conducting all the ministries themselves. - Alignment with Parkside vision as it relates to emerging Disciple Making Movement (DMM) initiatives and a commitment to integrate that into the Next Gen ministry programs. - Interpersonal and organizational leadership skills necessary to recruit and equip the volunteers, interns, and paid part-time stipend staff necessary to conduct the various NextGen ministries. - Teachability will be paramount since it is unlikely that a candidate will have expertise and training in both children’s and student’s ministry. - Education that includes a bachelor’s degree (or an approved training program) in an area relevant to this position. This person must be licensed for ministry or be willing to pursue licensure with the Christian & Missionary Alliance. Experience in paid youth ministries leadership in a church comparable to Parkside will be considered in lieu of a bachelor’s degree. - Experience that includes 2-3 years of volunteer or paid service in some area of children’s and/or student’s ministries in a church comparable to Parkside. WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING - Provide flourishing, continuous ministries that lead young people into a deep and meaningful relationship with Christ that will last for a lifetime. - Establish deep networks and relationships in the church and community. - Leverage those relationships and networks for the purpose of providing leaders and others to serve in NextGen ministries and programs. - Recruit, equip and engage volunteers and develop strong leaders. - Empower parents in laying a foundation of faith. - Collaborating with church senior leadership to integrate our vision for disciple making into NextGen ministries so that we prepare our young people to be disciples who make disciples.
