Description/Responsibilities: 
Shiloh UMC is seeking a full-time Director of Student Ministries to lead the 7th-12th grade ministry. As a church, we are working toward developing programming from preschool through college age with a family based philosophy. This includes equipping and encouraging parents in their roles and encouraging intergenerational relationships while helping students deepen their spiritual growth rooted in God’s grace. We are looking for a DSM with a long-term vision who will work alongside staff and committed volunteers. One of the strengths of the student ministry at Shiloh is the building of relationships during all programming, but especially during summer camp trips and Dessert Theater. Another strength is the strong pool of adult leaders helping with and supporting the program. The responsibilities of the DSM are • Shepherd volunteers, students and their families, helping them develop their own relationship with Jesus Christ. • Coordinate, train, manage and supervise all adult volunteer leaders within the ministry • Implement student ministry programs including Sunday school, Wednesday night youth group, confirmation, outreach projects, special events and trips • Maintain a strong working relationship with other Shiloh UMC staff and volunteer leadership by participating in and contributing to weekly staff meetings and monthly administrative council and finance committee meetings • Integrate the student ministry into the life of the whole Shiloh congregation to build connection with the rest of the church
