The Student Ministry Director is responsible for creating and maintaining a healthy and effective ministry environment that will attract and lead students into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. The Director will do this by creating and inspiring a team of leaders, partnering with parents, and prayerfully following where God is leading in the process.

The Director will be ever conscious that there are those students that are far from God that need to be reached. At the same time, the Director must invest in those that are already believers so they can be equipped to reach those students far from God, and invite them in. The Director will also provide service opportunities for the students, so that every student has an opportunity to change and invest in the community around them.
