Job Summary

Avoca Christian Church is searching for a Student Pastor who is looking for a leader who is willing to start from scratch with a blank slate to build a life giving, lost student reaching, student ministry (7th-12th Grades). We are a church in the midst of a transition and revitilization that has been very difficult at times, we will be open and honest with our struggles and answer any and every question you may have. We have recently made the transition from a blended/traditional worship style to a Spirit lead modern style. Avoca was also a church that was focused on itself and 'taking care of our own first' (yes, that was actually said) that is truly becoming a Great Commission Church. All teaching is straight forward and biblical not shying away from hard truths. Some things will promise are 1) Complete support from the Lead Pastor and Elders, 2) A fun work environment that boarders on ridiculous some days, 3) a city/county that is full of unchurched students, we made the Barna top 100 unchurched list (yay us), 4) and at times, difficult challenges, we want you to know that going in, but we're in this together. A few of the key concepts we are looking for in a student ministry are 1) Biblical teaching, we can't out entertain the world, 2) Community, fun comes with anything when there's community, 3) Service, learning to serve and love like Jesus, 4) the use of conferecnes to enhance the spritual lives of teens, 5) and no, there's nothing wrong with having some fun either. The Student Pastor will have opportunities to preach on Sunday mornings to develop skills and prepare for ministry after student ministry and will participate in other areas of church leadership. We believe in growth and training, we all can get better and we believe in being a sending church if that is where God leads. Feel free to stalk us at www.avocachristianchurch.org
