Position: Youth Minister
Job Description for Youth/Associate Minister
Town & Country Christian Church

The Youth Minister, like any minister is called to a pastoral relationship with the church. This includes church members, regular attender, families, and individuals who God has placed in our care. These people should be cared for in a positive, caring, inclusive manner in order to promote a Godly lifestyle and heart. A minister therefore, should dedicate himself to God, and to others.

Develop, organize, administrate and supervise the Middle School and High School ministry.
Work alongside other minsters on staff, and commit to pastoral responsibility to the congregation.

Love God, His church, and the people He has placed in your ministry.

Reporting Structure
The Senior Minister is responsible for the staff on a daily basis, and all staff report directly to him. The Youth Minister reports to the Senior Minister on a daily (regular) basis, as well as to the elders as overseers of the staff and the church. All staff members should feel free to speak to any elder of Town and Country concerning their position and disposition of that ministry.
