Moraine Valley Church (MVC) is searching for its next Student Ministry Director. MVC is a mission-driven, future-focused, and world-changing community of believers in the Palos Heights area of Illinois (southwest suburbs of Chicago) that started over 75 years ago. They are centrally located between affluent and economically struggling communities and almost every
in-between. The diversity in their community provides an incredible opportunity to put the gospel on display in visible and tangible ways as they seek to reach everyone in every situation with the life-changing hope of Jesus.
MVC is in a “reset” in its student ministry. In a sense - they are creating a “start-up” culture in an existing framework. The students who currently attend have high loyalty and love for the program. Small group ministry is a core component of helping students feel loved, connected, and spurred on. At the core of it all has been a leadership community of students who have helped set the culture and tone. There are a healthy number of leaders and students to be inspired with a God-sized vision to reach their peers for Jesus.
The responsibilities of this position include the following: setting and implementing goals for the department; creating winsome environments for the students; developing and coaching student and adult teams for ministry success; crafting messages and worship times; and implementing outings, camps, and summer service experiences.
If you are a coach-minded self-starter and learner who appreciates humor and is passionate about reaching students in the broader Chicago area and beyond, consider applying for this position!
P.S. If this job isn't exactly what you're looking for, feel free to check the job board of open positions.
