Youth Pastor

Job Description

Worden Cornerstone Church (WCC) is looking to hire a full-time youth pastor to lead our church’s junior high and high school students by building a comprehensive, weekly ministry to this group (fellowship, worship, discipleship, missions and outreach). To be successful in this position, you will need to provide students with a place to belong that gives them the opportunity to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and influence those around them to do the same.

There will also be associate pastor responsibilities as assigned by the pastor (hospital visitation, occasional preaching, etc.). The salary will be up to $50,000 depending on experience, education, etc.

Worden Cornerstone Church is a healthy, loving church that is growing all the time. Baldwin City is a small town, but close to Lawrence (home of KU) and the Kansas City area.
