    Youth ministry is VITAL and those called to pour into the lives of students and their families are in high demand right now. At Chemistry Staffing, we understand the importance and the challenge of student ministries. We know that a strong, healthy Youth Pastor is foundational to serve as an example, confidant, discipler, and multiplier during these critical years.


    We are working with churches all over the United States and have SEVEN incredible Student Ministry positions that we're working on filling here at Chemistry Staffing as we're heading into the new year.  

    When you apply, we'll be comparing your information to what each church has told us they are looking for in four key areas:


    1. Theology

    Take a look at each of these student ministry opportunities, and before you apply, please consider:


    1. Are you qualified for this position?
