The Girls Discipleship Coordinator (GDC) will play a vital role through supporting the Director of Student Ministry (DSM), directly discipling female students, equipping leaders and engaging with parents.

    1. Relational Engagement with Students: Lead students (both from within and without the church) from one stage of their faith journey to the next through intentional time spent in the world of teenagers, being where they are, doing what they do, talking with them, interacting with them and building relationships with them. Tasks include (but are not limited to):
    o Attend student sports events, concerts, activities, etc.
    o Disciple students individually and in small groups
    o Train students to reach their friends
    o Provide counseling and spiritual direction to students on an individual basis

    o Serving with students in Wednesday evening large group (Connect),
    o Leading and teaching girls in small groups
    o Leading and teaching Sunday morning Discipleship Classes
    o Discipling girls through camps, retreats and missions trips

    3. Developing Leaders: The GDC will pray for and seek out godly caring female adults to volunteer on the student ministry team. Tasks include (but are not limited to):
    o Identify, recruit and train adults in incarnational ministry to students and effective discipleship of students
    o Meet regularly with female volunteers to encourage and equip them to serve

    Working Conditions:
    1. Full Time: Approximately 43-47 hours per week (open to PT for right candidate)
    2. Office Hours: Four weekdays per week to be coordinated with the DSM, with the understanding that the kind of relational ministry we desire will require being out of the office frequently
    3. Day Off: As this position requires night and weekend responsibilities, the GDC will have one day off during the week to be scheduled in conjunction with the DSM
    4. Evening and Weekend Activities: The nature of Student Ministry requires a flexible schedule to include some evening and weekend activities
