Description/Responsibilities: 
The role of Youth Director at St. Paul’s Church provides an exciting opportunity to inspire youth to become alive in their faith and equipped to serve as followers of Jesus Christ. St. Paul’s has been blessed with continuity of youth ministry leadership, ample funding for youth programming, and a positive, encouraging attitude toward youth and their families as we pursue our mission of “Offering Christ…Discovering LIFE!” We are seeking an individual with great enthusiasm for youth ministry (grades 6 through 12) while also being formally trained and experienced in youth ministry.
Requirements/Qualifications: 
We prefer a minimum of two years of full-time youth ministry experience along with two to four years of college education. While a more detailed description of the core requirements is included at the link below, we would prioritize past experiences in the following areas as being vital to our ministry: 1) Relational Ministry, 2) Faith Nurture (via large and small groups) from an orthodox/evangelical theological point of view, 3) Recruitment and Training of Adults, 4) Outreach to Inactive or Unchurched youth, and 5) Service Projects and Mission Trips. This role is based on the practical requirement of serving at least 40 hours a week along with availability to relocate to Findlay, OH, to begin work in September, 2013.
