SUMMARY OF POSITION
The Youth Minister is responsible for leading 7th-12th graders to follow Jesus with a high emphasis on relationships. He will also set a vision to grow the youth ministry through intentional outreach and he will engage student’s parents and equip them to fan into flame their student’s relationship with God. It is highly important for students to have relationships with adult leaders within the church. Therefore, the minister will recruit and develop a team of lay leaders who execute the youth ministry vision.
Lead and train leaders to mentor students through relational ministry
Lead students to engage our loving God. Then, out of an overflow of that love, engage others with the gospel
Engage and resource parents to be the primary spiritual leaders of their children
Teach students to relationally engage God through practicing spiritual disciplines

PRIMARY JOB RESPONSIBILITIES include but are not limited to the following:

Research and innovate in order to develop relational and engaging programming for (including but not limited to) Wednesday nights.
Oversee serving and outreach opportunities in the community.
Coordinate camps and retreats; lead a team to plan the activities and programming.

Think like a leader. Wherever the youth minister goes, he is aware that he is a spiritual leader and that burden of leadership informs and influences his actions and words towards all people he engages.
Engage parents. Though the youth minister will spend a large portion of his time with students, he will also communicate with and lead parents. This means he will need to learn, understand, and execute multiple forms of communication.
Be a reader and a learner. Readers and learners continue to grow. We pursue this as a staff team in order to innovate within our ministry but also to continue to grow in wisdom as a person.

CITY CHURCH PATHWAY FOR MINISTRY
The Bible is God’s Word.
The Bible is a library of books of varying genres telling one unified story about God. It is written for us, but not to us. It is written by humans, and inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is reliable and authoritative as it is properly understood through the author’s intent. It is the revelation of the one Triune God and through it we understand who Jesus is and what he has done to include us in his Kingdom. (Psalm 12:6, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21)
The Gospel changes everything.
Jesus, the crucified and resurrected Messiah, is Lord. Each of those words has deep meaning. When we realize this, we repent from other things that we have made Lord and follow Jesus. Its his life that is our righteousness, his death that takes away condemnation for sin, and his resurrection that previews the way he is making us new and will make all creation new. Baptism is an outward testimony of the gospel and the Lord’s Supper is an ongoing reminder of it. It is our privilege and responsibility to proclaim it and live out its implications daily. (Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 2:32-41, 1 Corinthians 11:23-25, 1 Corinthians 15, Colossians 2:6-15)
Walking is slow, patient, relational, non-anxious, and humble…and Jesus did a lot of it. As the body of Christ, we walk, too. A relationship with God is described as a walk. We believe God does his best work in us and through us over a long period of walking with Jesus and his church. We’re not in an anxious hurry, because God’s not.. (John 11, Mark 4:35-41, Luke 24, Matthew 11:28-30, Micah 6:8, 1 John 2:6)
Church membership is covenantal.
A covenant is an agreement between people whereby each person agrees they will remain faithful to what they have promised. In the New Covenant, Christ committed himself to us so we can commit to one another. Membership formally identifies those who have committed and are accountable for practicing the ‘one anothers’ of scripture and obeying the commands of Christ. (Hebrews 13:17, 1 Peter 5:1-5)
All staff are required to be covenant members. Below are who our covenant members agree to be. They are the minimum starting point for all staff.
A covenant is an agreement between people whereby each person agrees they will remain faithful to what they have promised. It is a commitment that must not be taken lightly. The other covenant members of City Church desire that everyone who commits to our efforts fully understands what is expected of them.
We are committed to the Bible as God’s Holy Word. (2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Tim. 3:16)
I affirm the authority and sufficiency of the Bible, its centrality to the church’s mission, and the need to submit to its teaching in all matters of life. ________
We are committed to the gospel revealed in the Bible. The gospel, in short, is that Jesus, the crucified and resurrected Messiah, is Lord. He lived a perfect life, took my sin upon himself, died in my place, resurrected, as a result gave me the record of his perfect life, and entrusted his Spirit to me to empower me to honor God with my life. He’s coming back again to make the world new, our ultimate hope. (Romans 1:16, 1 Cor. 15, Gal 2:20, Eph 2:1-10 ).
I affirm I have placed my trust in Jesus and believe it’s only his perfect life and death in my place that saves me and I have given him full control of my life. ________
CULTIVATE DON’T CONSUME IN THE WORSHIP GATHERING
We need to hear the gospel regularly. The weekly worship gathering is one of the primary ways we hear and express to others the truths about God. The weekly, repetitive, and active worship experience reorients our heart back to God. We “NEED” to worship together. In our Worship Gatherings, a person sitting alone shouldn’t be that way for long. We use time before & after worship gatherings to seek out first time guests and engage them in conversation, ask the Holy Spirit to show us someone who needs prayer or a kind word, invite others into smaller community and have conversations that matter. (Acts 2:42, Hebrews 10:25).
I commit relationally engage in our worship gathering as a normal life rhythm. ________
CULTIVATE DON’T CONSUME IN A COMMUNITY GROUP
We were created to be in community not only with God, but with one another. Though we might be drawn into community for different reasons, our ultimate goal is to be bound together by our common adoption in God our Father. In groups, we are intentionally seeking the spiritual growth of one another. We don’t depend on someone else to do it. By God’s Spirit we personally take the risk to cultivate growth in ourselves and in our friends while also calling others alongside us to grow up into the gospel. (Romans 12:3-8, Gal. 6:1-5).
I commit to engage in community by regularly attending a community group. ________
BE FINANCIALLY & SACRIFICIALLY GENEROUS
We will give generously by giving our money to cultivate the message of the gospel. God has blessed us to not only provide for our own needs but also the needs, spiritual and physical, of the church family. All my money and resources belong to God. He gives us an incredible responsibility to steward His money so we can involve ourselves in His eternal mission. Our generosity will change the way heaven looks. (2 Cor. 8:1-9, 9:6-15)
I commit to give at least 10% of my income to the ministry of the church. ________
SHARE THE GOSPEL & MAKE DISCIPLES
Healthy spiritual growth leads to multiplication of followers of Jesus. We will ask others to grow alongside us and as they grow we will send them out to do the same. (Matt. 28:18-20, 2 Cor 5:20, 2 Tim. 2:2).
I commit to engage others to multiply the good news of Jesus. _______
PRACTICE SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES
In order to know and understand God we will need to practice the disciplines he has revealed to us in the Bible (Prayer, Bible study, fasting, solitude, Sabbath, etc). The Bible is literally God’s words. It is the way we know Him and how we know our true selves. We will meditate regularly on scripture and memorize it. If we are to know the thoughts and intentions of our sinful heart and have him remake us from the inside out, we’ll need the Word to do surgery on us. (Psalm 119:9-16, 2 Timothy 3:16)
I commit to practicing the spiritual disciplines. _______
DON’T QUIT WHEN IT GETS DIFFICULT. THAT’S HOW YOU’LL GROW.
When you’re confronted in your sin. When someone in our church sins against you. When you don’t like the preaching or music. When you fail to make the friends you long to have or when a particular ministry doesn’t measure up to your standard. We’re calling you to stay with us. God uses the difficult to produce beauty. (Romans 5:3-5, 1 Peter 1:3-9).
I commit to persevere together with this church family. In the event I believe God is calling me to leave, I will not leave without having a conversation with at least one elder. ______
