10/12/2015 Youth minister
The Sunset Church of Christ located in Miami, Florida is looking for a new Youth Minister. We average about 650 people on Sunday mornings and have about 80 teens (6th – 12th grades) in our youth group. We have 9 elders and 5 full time ministers (including this position). From a doctrinal perspective, we are a pretty mainstream conservative congregation within the Church of Christ fellowship.
Sunset is located in the southwestern part of Miami-Dade County. Life in Miami is different – but in a great way! Think palm trees and 80-degree days in December; think multi-cultural foods coupled with sunny beaches. Life definitely moves at a different pace down here. Miami is a culture-rich community that is bustling and growing. It definitely does not have a “small town” feel. However, the valley that is Miami is surrounded on either side by the beautiful Florida Everglades, the only ecosystem of its kind, and world-renowned, crystal-clear water beaches. It truly is a one of a kind place with so much to see and do. Many locals often discover “new” activities to do on the weekends, even though those activities have probably been around many years.
By the same token, Sunset’s youth group is very diverse in their personalities, backgrounds, family life, race, etc. The unofficial motto for our congregation is “one church with two languages.” Sunset is pretty evenly balanced between English and Spanish speakers (many of whom are bilingual). The vast majority of our youth speak English, but we need someone who can communicate with parents and members in both languages. The ability to speak Spanish is not a requirement but we would respectfully ask any candidate to commit to learning the language and becoming conversant within two years of their start date.
First and foremost, our church is looking for a man with a strong faith and personal commitment to the Lord. We need a humble servant who loves people, has a passion for evangelism, and who has demonstrated an ability to lead group and personal Bible studies. The right man will be a self-starter with strong interpersonal skills and proven history of event planning and organizational skills.
Second, though not strictly required, we prefer a man who is married and who has a degree in one the following concentrations: Bible, Youth or Youth & Family Ministry. Additionally, we would prefer a candidate that has experience working with teenagers. Though these specific qualifications are not required, they would certainly be beneficial for a candidate to possess in applying for this position.
A complete Job Description may be found on our church website sunsetonline.com or at www.MinisterMatch.com/Sunset. Applications are being accepted from Thursday, October 8th, 2015 through Friday, December 11th, 2015. Send cover letter and resume to: SunsetMiami@MinisterMatch.com and be sure to note the Youth Minister Search at Sunset Church of Christ (Criminal Record & Background Check may be required).
