About Us: Goshen Baptist Church is a Southern Baptist church in growing Spotsylvania, Virginia. Spotsylvania is about an hour north of Richmond, VA and an hour south of Washington, DC. We average 120 for Sunday morning worship with a mix of ages from babies to senior adults. Our children and youth ministries are active, but are in need of committed, consistent leadership as we seek to disciple our students into mature followers of Jesus.
You can find out more about us on our website at goshenbaptistchurch.net.
Position Summary: We are presently looking for a part-time or bi-vocational Director of Student Ministries. This person will be responsible for providing leadership to our children and youth ministries. This will include direct discipling of children and youth through teaching and relationship building. It will also include recruiting, training, and mobilizing volunteers. He/She will partner with parents and student ministry volunteers to make disciples for Christ by developing and implementing a comprehensive approach to student ministry (including group building, worship, discipleship, mission, and outreach.)
Time Commitment: This is a part-time or bi-vocational position. We are willing to be flexible regarding both the number of hours worked and the schedule of when those hours are worked. These parameters will be discussed during the interview and hiring process and agreed upon by both the candidate and the search team. We would expect that any candidate for this position would be able to commit at least 10 hours per week to the position with a maximum of 30 hours per week.
This position would be perfect for a college or seminary student who is looking to gain valuable ministry experience while still in school. Our church is able and willing to work with a seminary or college for you to gain academic credit through your work (such as the EQUIP Network at SEBTS). The position would also be a great fit for someone further along in life who has another primary source of income.
Requirements: Any candidate for this position must be in full agreement with the Baptist Faith & Message 2000 and willing to become a member of Goshen Baptist Church. While education and experience will be looked upon favorably, there are no minimum requirements in these areas to be eligible for this position.
