Swansboro United Methodist Church is a leader in ministering to youth (6th-12th grade) throughout our community. We wish to see our youth grow in their knowledge and love of Jesus Christ while being challenged to live out their faith beyond the walls of the church building. At the core of our student ministry will be the desire to build authentic relationships between the youth and adult leaders that fosters a space for challenge, growth, and trust.
The primary role of our Director of Student Ministries will be to create systems for sustainable youth ministry within the church community. We believe that youth ministry is done best with a great team, so a big part of the job will be in volunteer recruitment and development. As a large church, we have a lot of ministry opportunities for youth, most of which are organized by dedicated volunteers. This position will help bridge the gaps between these ministry opportunities and create a Student Ministries program that will run effectively and efficiently.
Along with our volunteer recruitment emphasis, this position will also be responsible for creating/selecting excellent teaching curriculum for all youth related activities.
This position is full time, year-round, exempt status. Salary is commensurate with experience and education and includes normal withholdings for taxes and social security. The position also includes continuing education funds for professional development opportunities.
