Job Description

Title: Youth & Worship Director
Hours: 40 hours/week; flexible hours
Vacation: Four weeks annually with a maximum of 5 Sundays per year
Reports to: Executive Pastor

Overview
The Youth and Worship Director at Oak City Church works to develop, lead, and grow teams to disciple our students, and our people through worship so that they may know and follow Jesus.

Qualifications
A love for Jesus and reliance upon God’s Spirit to lead the ministry.
The ability to screen and communicate sound theology.
A proven disciple-maker.
Experience in recruiting, training, equipping, and leading ministry teams.
Demonstrated competence to sing and play an instrument.
Strong relational skills to contextualize the gospel for middle and high school students.
An awareness and sensitivity to the diverse needs of kids in middle and high school.
Fulfill the character qualifications of a deacon as taught in Scripture.
Live and lead in line with the Church’s mission, vision, values, and doctrinal statement.

Responsibilities
Planning & Executing Worship Gatherings & Events (25%)
Design and lead worship gatherings with music that exalts Jesus with engaging music, contextualized liturgy, and heart-felt prayer to help our church grow contemplative and joyful.
Upfront leadership and oversight of the worship experience on Sundays and events.

Disciplemaking of Youth (30%)
Develop an incarnational posture of pursuing kids who do not yet know Christ.
Regularly communicate and support parents’ at-home discipleship of students.
Plan and lead weekly meetings, host connecting events, and bi-annual retreats.
Equip students for ministry and invest with them in missions.

Volunteer Oversight (25%)

With the elders and pastors, set and communicate regular outcomes for ministry.
Weekly meetings with the pastors and staff to plan Sunday gatherings, personal and professional development, manage the budget, set goals, and evaluate the ministry.
Oversee music, sound, lighting, and video teams and ensure that they’re well-equipped.
Oversee appropriate cleaning, organization, and maintenance of equipment.
Maintain consistent communications through relationships and software.

Vision for this Role
Our priority for the person who takes this position is to settle in and make friends. If you have a family, you’ll find many open and warm families that are down-to earth and highly relational. We want you to find encouragement from a healthy leadership culture and bring new ideas to help us implement a new discipleship structure this fall. Becoming one of us and growing as a disciple is our highest priority for you because we think it’s essential to practicing the way of Jesus and growing his kingdom.

When it comes to worship, we would like our gatherings to continue to provide engaging music with a more thoughtful contemplation through timeless liturgy. We have consistent musicians but we would like to see more new talent surfaced and developed.

Our volunteer youth leadership has provided stable, outstanding leadership for years. We currently have 20-25 youth in our middle and high school ministry. That said, we are primed for growth with fifteen middle schoolers and a dozen rising 4th and 5th-grade students. We are investing in developing a more robust incarnational ministry over the next few years. Towards that end, this fall we would like to see more time spent going to where youth are and increasing our meeting frequency. Our prayer is that it will yield many grace-empowered kids who love others and serve him for the rest of their lives.
