Mountain Life Church in Park City, Utah is prayerfully searching for our next full-time Student pastor or director of Student Ministries. We are blessed to live in one of the most beautiful ski towns in the United States in an area that has four seasons full of outdoor activities. We place a high value on our ministry to both children and youth. Our student ministry encompasses both Jr. and Sr. Highers who participate in our weekly gatherings, small groups, retreats, outreach events, the bi-annual Challenge youth conference and mission experiences. The person we are looking for is one who has a deep love for Jesus, students, and the outdoors. He or she will also know how to build leadership teams for both adult and student leaders. He/she will engage the parents to partner with our student ministry so that our students faith is enriched both at home and as part of our youth group. Our deep desire is that our students will grow a faith in Jesus and involvement in the church that will stick with them for the remainder of their life. We value a pastor or director who has a solid grasp of God’s Word and at the same time knows how to facilitate an interactive approach to student discipleship. We love to see our students experience God’s presence with worship experiences that they find meaningful. The ideal candidate enjoys hanging with students and bringing onto his or her team, adults of all ages to do the same. The next student pastor will want to be a vital part of Mountain Life’s pastoral staff team and bring a great attitude of positive and prayerful expectancy to this position. The candidate will know how to plan out events and ministry strategies with his/her team that relate to the students with a mixture of fun, outreach to newcomers, and growth in Christ. We especially love it when our students step up as leaders in their own right within the youth group and/or serve with their gifts in the larger church family.
Qualifications include a track record of leadership involvement in a growing and effective youth ministry and a keen understanding of today’s student and the world in which they live. Keys to our next Student leader's effectiveness will also include a winsome personality, a relational style, and healthy emotional/spiritual maturity.
