Pastor of Youth Ministry
    Job Description

    DCC is a vibrant and growing multi staff church of followers of Jesus committed to the mission of Jesus. In September we will be launching our new vision as a church, so stay tuned! It will be an exciting time!

    DCC is home to a thriving youth ministry, and is searching for a gifted and called Pastor to lead and shepherd our youth! It is more difficult now than ever to navigate the ever changing world we live in, and the importance of youth ministry has never been more clear. We have an average attendance each week of 35 to 55 Junior and Senior High students, and a committed and fun loving group of Youth Leaders.  

    DCC Youth Ministry is built around regular Thursday night meetings that include interactive games, engaging biblical teaching and videos, as well as great food and quality friendships. We also currently have a much loved series of off-site excursions and relationship building activities! 

    We have a wonderful church facility that is perfectly designed for youth ministry with a full sized gym, dedicated youth room with full multi-media capability, a sanctuary with excellent sound and video capacity, a baseball diamond, and several acres of landscaped outdoor space. We believe there is a great opportunity here to impact the lives of many youth, leaders, and their families!

    The Pastor of Youth Ministry would:

    • give leadership to our Thursday night Youth program
    • organize our off site excursions 
    • promote the work God is doing in our Youth Ministry to the entire church
    • build, equip, train, and give leadership to a dynamic team of Youth Leaders
    • take the primary biblical teaching role in DCC Youth Ministry
    • pray for the students and their families
    • construct a vision for the future of DCC Youth Ministry and work with the Lead Pastor and Youth Leaders to see it fulfilled
    • spend time building relationships personally with the youth and their families
    • participate in the church life of DCC and its worship services
    • preach on Sunday morning between 2 and 12 Sundays a year depending on gifting and calling
    • actively participate in staff meetings and committees related to Youth and Family ministry
    • find other areas of our church ministry that fit their gifting that further the mission of DCC and its impact on Chatham Kent.
    • work with the Lead Pastor to implement DCC's Vision and see it grow

    We are looking for someone who is passionate about discipling teenagers and creating an atmosphere here at DCC where kids want to bring their friends. Someone who believes in team ministry and is able to identify, motivate, and equip present and future leaders as well as train, delegate, and release them into fruitful ministry. We value communicating the gospel in clear and engaging ways, emphasizing not just what we should know, but how we should live it! Creativity and forward thinking would be a tremendous asset. 

    We are also hoping the new Pastor of Youth Ministry will partner with us and give leadership to some of our Connect Ministries here at DCC. One of our core convictions is that God calls us to be connected to one another as followers of Jesus, and we are hoping to deepen and expand our Connect ministries to that end. The new  pastor would help oversee several relationship building events each year like our annual Outdoor Service/BBQ, a Fall kickoff event, and any other fresh ideas to continue our growth together as the body of Christ, and reach out to families in the community.


    • Preferred: Bachelor's degree from a Bible College or equivalent
    • Preferred: Experience in youth ministry
    • Genuine faith in Jesus Christ
    • Clear sense of calling to ministry
    • Dynamic personal prayer life, and connection to the Word of God
    • Leadership gifting and desire to grow this ministry through multiplication and investing in its leadership
    • Genuine love for people and the church
    • Agreement with DCC's statement of faith
    • Bonus: Alternate gifting in music, drama, worship leadership or small group ministry

    The Pastor of Youth Ministry would report to the Lead Pastor directly. Salary would be commensurate with experience and qualifications. Commitment: 40 hours per week plus 5-10 volunteer hours carefully balanced with family time and personal free time
