Youth Minister

Dayspring Baptist Church is currently looking to complete its staff team with a part-time Youth Minister. Dayspring is a moderate sized, vibrant congregation committed to following Jesus with open hearts and minds. We are generous in our theology, progressive in mission, and contemplative in spirituality. We’re looking for someone to join our staff team and become part of our church community. Dayspring has experienced recent growth in young families. In 2017 we added a new children’s wing, prayer chapel, and office to our buildings. In 2019 we are adding a playground and outdoor pavilion.

Our current youth group is made up of 5-10 mostly middle school and early high school students. An additional 4 to 5 students will be eligible to participate next fall. They meet on Sunday evenings for food, games, fellowship, formation, and study. Traditionally, our youth programing has also included Sunday school, summer camps, fall retreats, social outings, and service opportunities.

The Youth Minister will report directly to the Sr. Pastor. They will primarily be responsible for coordinating and implementing a meaningful, engaging, and formational ministry to our students in grades 6-12. This will include recruiting and leading volunteers within the congregation, creating opportunities for play and fun, selecting curriculum, and crafting meaningful opportunities for spiritual growth and development.
