(In addition to this overview, please see the detailed job description in the file attached below.)

As a vital part of Salem’s spiritual formation ministries for all age levels, this position will establish a relational ministry that supports the spiritual development of the youth and young adults–middle and high school through age 30–of our church and community. The individual in this role will create an atmosphere of welcome and belonging as they plan and lead activities that foster Christian education and fellowship. This position will facilitate positive experiences that build good memories for participants of being engaged in a culture that fully integrates them into the life of the church.

The efforts of this position will align with the values of Salem Church and The Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church and will be focused on fulfilling the calling of numerous passages of the Bible including, but not limited to, the following.

“And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.” Matthew 18:5 (NIV)

“Start children off on the way they should go and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)

“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.” Colossians 3:16 (NIV)

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” Acts 2:42 (NIV)
