Loxley Church is going to be replacing the position called "youth pastor", but this position is more than preaching to 75 teens on Wednesday night.
Here is what we need:
*Someone willing to build meaningful relationships with people of all ages in the church.
*Someone willing to work on a TEAM that pursues excellence together, always looking to improve (which means you can't wear your feelings on your sleeve).
*Someone who has significant experience developing ministry teams and has the ability to mentor, train and shepherd today's awesome generation of dreamers.
*Someone who is willing to submit to pastoral leadership and be loyal to the vision of Loxley Church.
*Someone who wants to live in beautiful, amazing Baldwin County, Alabama, for many years because we need continuity in our leadership at this point in our journey. (If this is going to be a stepping stone opportunity until a bigger church opens up...do not respond.)
*Someone who is prompt for all commitments and is not in a hurry to leave after an event or service.
*Someone who has the skills to do things like teach and preach, but focuses more on people than he/she does on programs.
*Someone willing to be flexible in their job description as the vision of Loxley Church is subject to shift as the Holy Spirit leads us. (The Vision is not changing, but the way HE has us carry it out is ever changing.)
This is not a typical opportunity post, but Loxley Church is not a typical church. Check out our website at www.loxleychurchofgod.org.
If interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are replacing a fantastic "youth pastor" in a transition at Loxley Church. The standard has been set very high.
