We're Hiring a Student Director

We're looking to bring a new Student Director onto our team. Below you'll find the Job Description and a way to express your interest.

Role: The role of this full-time staff position is that of Student Director, providing direct leadership to both the Junior and Senior High students of Redeemer Community Church, equipping them to joyfully follow Jesus and help others do the same
 
Reports to: Lead Pastor

 

We're looking for a man who...
  • Senses God's calling to work with junior and senior high students alongside their parents. Ideally we are seeking someone to serve in this role for at least three years.
  • Demonstrates that his character is consistent with the ideals Paul lays out for Elders and Deacons in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 (We're not looking for perfection, but direction!)
  • Has proven himself competent in leading or serving in an effective Student Ministry (We're hopeful to find a man with at least two years experience, though this is not mandatory.)
  • Resonates with the vision-culture of Redeemer Community Church. (We want a man who’s in harmony with our mission, values, strategy, and measures.)
  • Shows potential for relational chemistry with our existing leadership (We obviously hope for a good team player who's easy to get along with!)

 

We want to always seek to answer the question, "What's the very best way, at this time, in this context, to disciple our students to joyfully follow Jesus and help others do the same?" Therefore, a major responsibility will be developing and implementing a contextualized plan to grow our students in accordance with the vision of Redeemer. Still, at this time, it seems the position will include at least the following:
  • Organizing Ministry—Set goals and meet them, create and keep deadlines, delegate responsibilities, make schedules/calendars, manage projects, coordinate events, etc.
  • Communicating Effectively—Keep church family, parents, and students abreast of ministry activities through effective communication: printed and posted calendars, clear and regular emails, timely promotions, etc.
  • Loving Students—Meet regularly with them, be available, keep in touch, meet needs, counsel hearts, attend events, etc. Show initiative and creativity in this regard.
  • Building Effective Ministry Teams—Build at least (1) a team of adults to shepherd the students in our ministry and (2) a team of students to minister to their fellow students.
  • Leading Large-Group Gatherings—Oversee RSM Sunday School on Sunday mornings (establish curriculum, teach, recruit additional adult teachers, etc.) and the RSM gathering on Wednesday evenings. Continually cultivate solid Biblical knowledge/understanding and the ability to teach/communicate well to the students.
  • Organizing Smaller-Group Opportunities—Develop a strategy to go beyond large-group gatherings to small-group and even one-to-one shepherding/discipleship. Implement Small Group Leader Training that continually encourages and equips your leaders.
  • Supporting and Reaching Students through Event Engagement—Attend at least one student event each week to support current RSM students and build relationships with their friends; also, develop a system whereby RSM Team Members and other Redeemer volunteers are present at various student events around town. Note: the Student Pastor position will require being “out” at least two evenings per week: (1) Wednesday Evenings for RSM gathering, and (2) various evenings attending student events like those noted above. Because of this, Office Hours are expected to be flexible for this position, but you will be accountable for your work schedule.
  • Spearheading Outreach—Strategize, plan, and execute evangelism opportunities, service projects, mission trips, etc.
  • Cultivating Fun!—Shape all of your ministry with relevant joy and craziness, as well as plan fun events, retreats, gatherings, and more.

 

We also look for each of staff members to live the LEADERS lifestyle:
  • Leadership Development: Provide initial and ongoing training for the members of your ministry team(s). You’re responsible for doing leadership development for your team(s).
  • Empowerment: Delegate the roles and responsibilities that ensure your ministry area(s) is operating effectively.
  • Affirmation: Encourage your team members in the use of their gifts, their strengths, and their passions. Walk around, catch people doing things right, and always affirm them.
  • Direction: Cast a clear and compelling vision for your area(s) of ministry that’s in alignment with the overall vision of Redeemer.
  • Evaluation: Lead your team(s) to regular evaluations, identifying your team’s strengths, growth areas, and always working on a plan for continual improvement.
  • Recruitment: Work with your team members to continually enlist new volunteers and adequately staff your area(s) of ministry.
  • Soul Care: Encourage the spiritual health and spiritual development of those on your team(s). 
 
This description should account for 80% of your time. The other 20% is dedicated to using gifts that we are currently unaware of, but would serve the church.
