At Starpoint Church, everyone’s welcome. Starpoint’s mission has always been about people joining together to share & show the love of Jesus with everyone they know.

About the Student Pastor:

We are looking for a Student Pastor to take our Middle School (6th-8th) and High School (9th-12th) ministries to the next level. We have a great team of Student Ministry Volunteers who are excited and ready to move into this new season of our church.

We recently moved into a brand-new building with great new student space that allows us huge new opportunities to see students come to know Jesus and to grow in their walk with Him.

You would be leading a youth group of over 120 students and ministering in an extremely unchurched and post-Christian area. This student ministry could easily double with a great leader.

If your heart and experience is in Student Ministries and for the unchurched, we would love to talk to you about this critical position in the life of our church as we look to pour into the next generation.
