Catalyst for Next Generation Ministry
(Including Youth, Young Adult and Camp/Retreat Ministry)
Leaders in the Missouri Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church are excited to share the faith with a new generation. We also know this can't be done the way we've always done it. We are searching for the right person to be our Catalyst for Next Generation Ministry. This person will be responsible for resourcing local congregations in creating discipleship processes for youth and young adults. We want to be up front. Our churches need assistance as they seek to reach younger people for Christ. In addition, we have several established ministries including a Conference Council on Youth Ministries and four camps that must be led through changes to remain effective. This person must be able to lead and negotiate changes with long-established ministries while constructing a new role focused on the resourcing of local churches. If you are well-grounded in the faith, consistently engage in Christian spiritual disciplines, have a strong ability to lead others and are passionate about reaching new generations for Christ, this position might be for you. You will need to be innovative, visionary, flexible, gifted in public speaking and communication, experienced in conflict management all with a proven track record for creating ministry with youth and young adults. Send resumes and cover letters to firstname.lastname@example.org. Excellent technology and social media skills are a must; Bachelor's Degree or higher is highly preferred.
