Full Time Youth Minister

Categories Bible Expires: 1st September, 2024 Tennessee

The youth minister’s mission at East Brainerd will be to prepare our youth for a lifetime relationship

with Christ. This individual’s main concern will be leading our teenagers in spiritual and personal

development to become a Christ-like servant. The ideal candidate will have a passion for youth. He will

have the ability to build relationships easily and demonstrate evangelism through sharing God’s word.

He will lead the youth activities, outreach programs, and youth services within the church. The youth

minister will be disciplined, self-motivated, and organized, as well as possess good communication

skills, spiritual maturity, and a good understanding of the Bible. He should demonstrate Godly

character and lead by example. He should also be able to demonstrate that being a Christian at any age

is fulfilling through attitude and actions.

Some of the responsibilities are organizing, leading, and preparing the youth group activities and events.

He will also be responsible for communicating with the youth and their parents to keep them informed

of upcoming events. The youth minister needs to understand the importance of being a team player, so

he can work successfully and harmoniously with other church ministers and staff, youth deacons, and

elders. It is important to establish a consistent weekly schedule that demonstrates good time

management and to develop short- and long-term goals for the youth group.

Organization is important, as the youth minister will likely have to manage several projects at one time

but also remain adaptable and flexible in balancing priorities, including both church and personal life.
