Youth Pastor

If you have a deep desire to change young lives for Jesus Christ, you may be the person we are looking for. Hope Community Church is a non-denominational church of 150, on the cusp of rapid growth. Located in Western Massachusetts, a part of the country desperate for Jesus Christ, you can come and help create the ministry you always wanted. Studies have declared New England to be the most unspiritual part of the country so you must have an evangelistic 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. Although the position is currently 20 hours a week, we expect it to grow to full time within 18 months. Our vision is that the youth pastor will focus on making relationships and developing a love for God in the students and young adults and spending very little time in long meetings. Come grow a future for your career and an eternity for youth and young adults in Western Massachusetts. Check us out at www.Hopechurchagawam.org.
