Director of Youth Ministry Job Posting

One of the largest Methodist churches in North Carolina is seeking a full-time Director of Youth Ministry.  First United Methodist Church of Cary (FUMC-C), a 3800 member congregation located in Cary, North Carolina, is committed to its youth and seeks a staff member who is able to help lead and fulfill the mission of the church to make disciples of Jesus Christ who grow in faith and love through worship, fellowship, service, and witness to one another and the world.


The FUMC-C Youth Ministry is a multi-staff ministry team who enjoys excellent support of clergy, staff, other ministry teams, and the congregation. 


The Youth Ministry Director needs at least five years in youth ministry leadership or equivalent and have evidence of gifts, graces, and an appropriate skill set to help discern, implement, and carry out the mission and vision of the church in the Youth Ministry.  This person will build up and lead a team of staff and adult servant leaders to create a vibrant and welcoming faith community.  FUMC-C has worked with Ministry Architects to build a sustainable plan and already has some viable goals in place, so there is a solid foundation of ministry and leadership upon which the church is re-building a sustainable infrastructure and team for doing effective and fruitful youth ministry.  Interested candidates should have a four-year college degree.


E-mail chris.sasser@ymarchitects.com to get an application.  Questions may be directed to Chris via e-mail.
