Student & Family Ministry Director
3/4 Time Position

Salary: $18,000/year
Time Commitment: 30 hrs./week

Oswego Christian Church is looking for a highly relational leader to join our team as a 3/4 Time Student & Family Ministry Director. Our commitment as a church is that as we experience
growth and our finances expand, that we will work towards providing raises to make this position a full time salaried position.

Oswego Christian is a church of 120 that is trying to help people find their way back home to God! We are sold out to reaching the lost and making a difference in the lives of the community we live within.

Our staff operates as missionaries to rural Kansas - we see this as an opportunity to go to the least of these and impact entire communities with the Gospel.

Our youth ministry currently has 10-15 students from Middle School to High School but has run as many as 30-40 in the past under good leadership. Oswego is a small community of 2,000 people about 45 minutes from Ozark Christian College. We have a killer youth room (pool tables, snack shack, lighting, etc.) and a group of adults that WANT to do whatever it takes to ensure that our Student Ministry has the best! Our Senior Pastor was in youth ministry for 15 years and loves to mentor young leaders and says “yes” to about any crazy idea that has been thought through well.

If you have been looking for a fantastic place to get your feet into ministry. Look no further.
