At Life Church in St Helen, we EXIST to Love God & Love People! We are a growing family of believers who desperately desire what's real and true!   The Presence of God means everything to us, and we are actively seeking ways to bring the Gospel to our community and surrounding areas.  We are located less than 1 mile from our community's school, and we have a legitimate need for a Young Adults Pastor for ages roughly 16-29 ish.
We would be honored to have a Husband & Wife team, but don't let that scare you away from praying over/pursuing this position if you're single!

Right off the bat, you will have a SOLID team of four Young Spirit-Filled Adults who are already leading what we call "YAM" (Young Adult Ministry). The ministry is currently the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of the month from 5-6 pm, along with YAM nights/events/lock-ins. They are beginning to minister & serve at the school when possible as well as developing human videos that tie in with current messages being preached! I am super blessed and excited about what God is already doing in our midst!! We WANT growth, but we aren't chasing numbers...we're chasing God's destiny for Life Church!

(Please don't let the following offend you or take it in the wrong way!)
From this Senior Pastor's heart to yours, I am not impressed by skinny jeans, or a Young Adult Pastor being "cool", "contemporary", or "relevant". I have no PROBLEM with these things in and of themselves, but they are absolutely NO substitute for the anointing and a true love for God & People!

Do you (and your spouse/children if applicable) want to become part of something that is REAL? Contact me.
Do you truly want to give your life for the Gospel and literally reach the lost? Contact me.
Do you want to be a part of something that is greater than yourself? Contact me.
There are many more details to discuss!!  It's truly an EXCITING time to be in the Kingdom of God!!  
I can't wait to meet you and seek God's will together!
