Pastor, Next Generation Ministries
If you are a born-again Christian, who lives a spirit-led life and has a desire and the skills necessary to provide leadership, and disciple leaders involved in student ministries, then we would love to talk with you.
Just to be clear, we are looking for someone that has a big heart for young lives. We need a leader who takes a bigger picture view of how children come into the church and the systems and programs that will help them develop a meaningful relationship with Christ through their various development stages. We have great volunteers who are the ‘feet on the street’ and who have a love for the activities they are involved with…but we want to dream bigger for what we can do for Christ. We would like to have a clearer vision, a coordinated plan and support for those leaders actively engaged with kids, youth and college & careers activities.
Reporting to the Lead Pastor and in accordance with Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship (ERBF) statement of faith, governing policies, and in harmony with other church ministries, the role sets the vision for and oversees ministries that impact the spiritual formation and development of students through to their career stage at ERBF. Working with various ministry leaders and volunteers (Children’s Ministry, Youth Ministry & College & Career Ministry), the role will support those working with students to develop a solid relationship with Jesus Christ that will extend into adulthood. The role will also establish a vision and plan through the designated ministries to build greater community engagement and outreach programs.
At the start we would envision about 50% of the position’s time spent with Youth Ministry, 15-20% of time spent meeting with Children’s Volunteer Director and volunteers, and the remaining time considering how to initiate a College & Career group and support ERBF with community outreach.
