Seeking Youth Whisperer in Garner, NC
St. Andrews UMC in Garner, NC is looking for a youth director who will inspire, lead, and minister to youth grades 6-12 in our congregation and community. Our young people are kind, intelligent, open-minded, and inquisitive. They ask hard questions of our faith, our church and themselves. They want straight talk and biblical guidance for the lives they lead in a very tough world. We want to give them love and support. We want to foster in them the sort of faith in God that moves mountains.
The ideal candidate will first remember what it was like to be a youth. Humor as a vital component of youth ministry cannot be overstated. The director will:
• connect young people to their community through service to others;
• build relationships based in mutual respect;
• be the clear leader and facilitator for the group;
• continue revered group traditions such as a week of summer camp at Lake Junaluska.
Sunday night youth meetings are traditional, but negotiable. This part-time position has lots of potential and flexibility for the right candidate.
We are excited to have completed our new Family Life Center. This is a time of change and growth in the life of our church. We’re eager to move forward to nurture and build a transformative youth ministry. Check us out!
