We are looking for a Director of Student Ministries
Headland United Methodist Church, Headland, Alabama
HUMC seeks a fun-loving, Christ-centered individual for a full-time salaried position interested in guiding, mentoring, and loving our youth (grades 6-12) and college students as they grow in their faith. As a United Methodist Church, we seek someone who understands our doctrine, has a strong faith, and a love for and can work with teens in groups and individually. The Director will need to be present on Sundays for Sunday School and worship, Sunday evenings for UMYF, and Wednesday evenings for youth activities and other church and youth events.
Qualifications: While a college degree in ministry or education is preferred, we would also consider an individual with post-secondary education who has experience in youth ministry or teaching. The Director must be self-motivated, have a Christ-like attitude in words and actions, and have the desire and ability to interact with various youth. They will need organization skills, communication skills, and the ability to recruit, encourage and manage a team of volunteers while working with youth, parents, staff, and the community. Musical talents would be a plus as we hope to start a praise band and a new Sunday Contemporary Worship Service.
Description of Duties: We are looking for an individual to plan, promote and direct the Christian education of our youth through a wide range of studies and activities, including but not limited to mission trips, retreats, Bible studies, holiday programs, and summer events. Our Director will need to work within the guidelines of our church’s Safe Sanctuary policy while holding youth and volunteers responsible.
