Job Summary

The Christian Student Foundation (CSFPA), a collegiate ministry organization in Pennsylvania, is seeking a candidate with strong teaching/preaching backgrounds and who relates well to university students for openings with the Christian Student Fellowship at Penn State University (University Park). This position requires fund raising in order to complete base salary and benefits. CSF-Penn State is a recognized student organization and currently serves 20-25 students in various ministry efforts, including spring break missions outreach, retreats and outreach on campus. The ministry is supported by a strong, encouraging board that have a understanding and passion for campus ministry. Penn State – University Park is the main campus of The Pennsylvania State University system and is known for having strong academic programs in Engineering, Agriculture, Earth and Mineral Sciences, Business and Meteorology. Our desire as a ministry on campus is to reach students who do not believe in Christ, strengthen the faith of Christian students and develop student leaders. Expectations: Leadership is a key to an effective ministry. CSFPA is a faith-based ministry relying on faithful contributions of individuals and congregations. Therefore the campus minister is expected to be a primary support raiser for his ministry. CSFPA is looking for someone who can lead others to the Lord, who is experienced in one-on-one discipleship and can mentor others. As an effective communicator with young adults, the campus minister should consider himself a lifetime student of scripture and the world in which we live. The campus minister must share a conviction that every area of study in academia is a study of God’s creation and human alienation from Him, therefore helping students develop a Christian world and life view is vital to ministry. Finally, one of the essential qualities of a campus minister is a passion for God. The campus minister will have a big impact on young lives and must lead by example. Just as Paul states, “Follow me as I follow Christ”, so the campus minister must be an open book for students to observe and understand.
