    Job Description

    New Valley is seeking a full-time assistant pastor or director to students. We have about 60 students in our ministry, including 6th-12th grade and we
    average about 35-40 in our main weekly gathering. We have a very strong team of youth leaders (nine currently).

    The Candidate
    The ideal candidate will have the following character, gifts and commitments:
    ● A life that is consistent with the gospel exhibiting spiritual maturity, integrity, and humility.
    ● A passion for student ministry as well as prior experience leading a student ministry.
    ● A multi-year commitment to student ministry.
    ● Gifts in teaching/preaching, gathering, and leadership/administration.
    ● Experience in recruiting, leading, and equipping volunteer teams.

    The ideal candidate will have a missional approach to student ministry:
    ● Adept and comfortable in walking with students in the real world struggles and issues they face on a daily basis and doing so with grace and patience.
    ● An ability to minister to students in a way that brings the gospel to bear on issues like anxiety, eating disorders, depression, sexuality and gender and to do so in a winsome loving way instead of an “us/them” approach.

    The ideal candidate will have ministry and cultural convictions that strongly resonate with our own:
    ● We are a politically and culturally diverse body of Christians who live in he unity the gospel creates.
    ● We have a deep appreciation for the role of women in our congregation, including a commitment to the guidance suggested by the 2017 PCA position paper on Women in Ministry.
    ● We expect skeptics and seekers to be present in our gatherings which is reflected in our philosophy of ministry.

    Our compensation and benefits packages are very competitive. Seminary/ordination is not required for this position, but would be appreciated. Ordained or ordainable candidates would be members of our preaching team. Potential candidates should email Carson Joyner (Executive Pastor), and please include your resume and a bio.
