Minister of Youth and Families

If you are creative and want to change lives for Jesus Christ you are the person we are looking for.  We are a non-denominational church of 150 on the cusp of rapid growth.  Found in Western Massachusetts, the land of the frozen chosen, you can come and help create the ministry you always wanted in a part of the country desperate for Jesus Christ.  Numerous studies have declared New England to be the most unspiritual part of the country so you must have an evangelistic mind-set and gifting to do well here.  Hope Community Church is looking for someone to help grow and develop the existing youth ministry program and establish a ministry to young adults.  We know 20 hours a week is not much time to do ministry, so we want our minister to be focused on making relationships and developing a love for God in the students and young adults they work with and not spend long hours in meetings.  Come grow a future for your career and an eternity for youth and young adults in Western Massachusetts.
