MARYVILLE, Tenn. -- Coordinator of Student Ministries

MARYVILLE, Tenn. -- Coordinator of Student Ministries

First United Methodist Church of Maryville, Tennessee, seeks a full-time coordinator of student ministries to lead our congregation's ministries with students from sixth grade through college. Beyond the congregational student ministry, we have a great opportunity to engage United Methodist students on the campus of Maryville College, only blocks away from our site.

Responsibilities
This person's ministry enables students to grow along a path of discipleship through:
  • spiritual formation ministries, including Sunday school, small groups, and studies;
  • activities and events that allow students to build connection and relationships;
  • intergenerational opportunities for worship, service, and growth in community; and
  • intentional, invitational opportunities for entry points.
The youth ministry coordinator should:
  • engage students and their families through effective communication;
  • equip and deploy adult volunteers to work effectively with students;
  • cooperate and collaborate with staff and volunteers to make disciples; and
  • have a mindset for multiplication--always mentoring and apprenticing.
Qualifications
Clearly, the student ministry coordinator must have a deep, vital, vibrant faith in Jesus Christ and clear sense of vocational call. This person should have a college degree and previous experience in effective youth ministry. The person who fits this role best should have success stories in helping volunteers to live out their calling by equipping, encouraging, and deploying them faithfully and effectively. Leaders leave a trail!
