Are You in Student Ministry? Check Out this Job Opening!

Granger Community ChurchMy good friends at Granger Community Church are hiring a Student Ministry Director. This is not your normal church and not your normal student ministry position.

As you may know, I got my start in ministry at Granger about 15 years ago. I served on the team for more than eight years. Not only did I probably learn more about leadership than any other time of my life during those eight years, I also made many lifelong friends.

Knowing Granger’s culture, I can tell you these job openings where they are pursuing candidates outside the church rarely come along. With that in mind, you should consider jumping on this unique opportunity. Here’s a brief overview of the role:

Granger Community Church is seeking a dynamic student ministry director to provide innovative leadership and future direction to middle and high school students. Three buzz words that you will hear repeated at Granger are respect, family and story. The Granger staff culture is uniquely defined by its family-like feel with many staff being home grown and on staff for many years. Those who have joined the staff team more recently express feeling at home quite quickly and note how much they enjoy their fellow staff teammates.

Granger also respects the families and personal lives of the staff members keeping work-life balance a key priority. Many youth pastors measure their success on what they can do. The person in this role will measure success by what they equip others to do. He or she will be a visible catalytic leader for Student Ministries. The leader in this position will provide energizing teaching and leadership for the students and leaders and maintain a strong connection to the parents of the students.

The successful candidate will have a proven record of developing systems and processes for effective communication and growth of all aspects of the ministry. They will lead and reproduce disciples authentically with passion and will also have a strong work ethic and team-oriented mindset.

If you are an experienced student ministry leader, I strongly recommend you consider this opportunity. You may submit your confidential application online. For more information, contact my friends at Vanderbloemen Search Group.
