A Little About Us
Before you apply for a job, you probably want to know something about who’s hiring. For over 100 years, Easton has had a rich history of biblical teaching, passion for evangelism and missions, and commitment to multi-generational community. We believe that there is nothing more relevant than the gospel, that Scripture never gets old, and that life is better together. Today, we’re a growing church of around 350, located in Hainesport, NJ, about 30 minutes outside of Philadelphia. We’re a non-denominational, contemporary-styled church that is committed to helping people experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus.

We’re looking for a Pastor of Youth Ministries to provide:

  • Oversight, leadership and biblical teaching for the student ministry in alignment with the church’s mission, vision, and strategy.
  • Help create a safe and engaging environment and experience for students (middle school (6-8 grade) & high school (9-12 grade).
  • Recruit, train, and support student ministry volunteers.
  • Develop a strategy for reaching students outside the church.
  • Communicate with parents and staff regarding programming & events.

Big picture, we’re looking for the right leader to:

  • Provide biblical teaching to students in a relatable and applicable way.
  • Lead the student ministry team. Lead, recruit, train, and equip youth leaders to engage and build relationships with students and point them towards Jesus.
  • Develop youth ministry programming that makes a big deal out of Jesus.
  • Build on the current youth ministry foundation to create programs and events that are engaging, attractive, and fun, that will appeal to students and challenge them to take next step in their relationship with Jesus.
  • Care for students and their families.
    • Youth ministry is family ministry.
    • And nothing speaks louder to a parent than knowing that you love their kids.
    • Find creative ways to make authentic connections with students that make an impact on their lives.
  • Reach students who don’t know Jesus.
    • We believe that one of our greatest opportunities for reaching unbelievers in our community with the gospel is through the student ministry.

  • Self-starter, entrepreneur-type, who likes the idea of building new things and isn’t afraid to fail.
    • We’re not looking for someone to maintain what we’ve got; we want someone who’ll be excited to take our current student ministry to the next level.
