Youth Minister

What Makes Shell Knob, MO the place to be? 

A place to work hard in ministry and play hard on the lake and in nature. 

Great local K-8 school system. 

A beautiful country in the Ozark mountains filled with caring neighbors. 

A conservative base, yet so much ministry still needs to be done. 

A bit isolated from the woes filling the big city. 

Conveniently located around an hour from Branson, MO (live entertainment capital of the world/ one of the fastest-growing tourist destinations in America), Springfield, MO (3rd largest city in MO), and Bentonville, AR (birthplace of Walmart; has many cultural and culinary attractions). 

What is unique about Shell Knob? 

Surrounded by Table Rock Lake. 

Mix of full-time residents and weekenders. 

The population quadruples on nice weather and holiday weekends. 

Lakeside Christian Church is the only church in the area to have a full-time Youth Minister position. 

LCC also has its own pontoon boat to use for ministry. How many churches have their own boat? We have been blessed by our amazing, loving group of people. 

What are the challenges here? 

Large population of families below the poverty level. 

Large youth population not being ministered to (LCC is the only church focused on youth and children. Two vans go out to pick up kids whose parents are largely un-churched.) Serious drug problems, mostly meth. 

Major gap between the haves and have nots, yet LCC’s motto is “You belong.” 

Looking for someone to administrate the bi-weekly youth and children’s programs; guide and grow volunteers; provide youth service and connection opportunities; plan, promote, and fundraise for camps, CIY, and other events like Dare2Share; etc. 

We are looking for someone to be the Youth Minister that has obtained a four-year ministry degree or currently only has one year left working on a degree at a Restoration Movement college. LCC can consider either a full-time youth ministry candidate or a full-time candidate this summer, part-time during the school year, and full-time after graduation in summer 2023. 

Please email your resume and cover letter to If you would like a copy of the job description, please request it when you send your resume and cover letter. 

Come help us reach one more and then one more.
