Youth Pastor Position

We are looking for someone who is passionate about positively influencing Young People and reaching them for Christ.

“We exist to help people Know, Love, and Serve God, the Church and their Communities.”

In obedience to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission, we, the Mt. Carroll Church
of God, will intentionally go outside the walls of the church with the illuminating power of the
Gospel of Jesus Christ, in order to engage our communities. We will invest our time, talents, and
resources to meet people where they are at in their life's journey. We provide stimulating
conversations, energetic and relevant worship and Biblical teaching, pointing everyone towards
a deeper connection with Jesus Christ without compromising the Truth of God’s Word.
Therefore, we aspire to develop the God-given abilities of every believer to Know, Love and
Serve God, the Church and Their Community.

What we have to offer:

- A full time ministry opportunity 40+ hours.
- A growing Church family of 100+ and a great facility.
- Supportive people who understand that if you do not reach Youth by the age of 13, every subsequent year greatly reduces the chance of them coming to Christ, and know that the future of the Church is greatly influenced by the success of your ministry and have a vested interest in seeing you succeed.
- A financial budget that will allow you to do your ministry.
- Pay will be based on factors such as degree, experience and whatever else that you bring to the table.
