Oakwood Student Ministries Director

WE WANT SOMEONE AWESOME TO HELP US DO AWESOME THINGS. 

The Oakwood Student Ministry exists to REACH Jr. and Sr. High School students with the truth of the gospel, to CONNECT them with other Christ-followers, to help them GROW in their relationship with God, and to challenge these students to LOVE others and GLORIFY God with their lives. 

We’re a growing student ministry in the southwest Twin Cities Metro. We’re just a bunch of people trying to help each other become more like Jesus. We like to think of every meeting as a “come hang out and let’s talk about Jesus” kind of deal. It’s really all about Him. 

We’re looking for someone to help with the next season of our ministry. It’s hard to sum-up what that means because, well, youth ministry is a pretty odd job. It’s hard to condense “work hard, be faithful and let’s see where God takes us next” into a job description.

Honestly, the most accurate job description is to write “Help Teens Experience Jesus” on a post-it note and then get to work. 

That looks like a lot of different things on any given week. But basically, we’re looking for someone who: 

  • really loves Jesus 
  • no really, like… loves Jesus… like, “there’s no better way to live” type of love 
  • thinks teens are amazing 
  • wants to teach from the Bible 
  • is able to keep the “behind the scenes” stuff organized 
  • likes to dream big 
  • enjoys hanging out one-on-one with students 
  • is a team-player 

You know, someone who looks at Jesus’ life and says, “Yes! I want to live like that!” 

It’s a part-time job (which isn’t awesome, we know), so we’ll work to accommodate another work schedule. In general, it’ll be Sundays, Wednesdays, and one other “office day” each week, totaling around 20 hours a week. On those days you’ll be teaching, prepping lessons, training leaders, planning trips, hanging out with teens, praying for life transformation… you know, ministry stuff. 

For a complete job description (the kind you show your parents to prove this is a “real job”) you can click below. You’ll work alongside our seasoned volunteer team and our Associate Pastor, who’s been here for over 10 years and is eager to mentor and support an experienced or new up-and-coming youth pastor. 

IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN JOINING US ON THIS ADVENTURE, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.
