Associate Pastor/Director of Youth and Children

Trinity Church in Morton, Il., a church that was born out of the Charismatic Revival in the mid 70’s with a group of people who committed to God and one another to live as practically and powerfully as they could according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  With a commitment to the message of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and the Baptism of Holy Spirit, we have continued to vibrantly grow as a body of believers who have impacted the region spiritually, emotionally and physically.  Trinity is a passionate body of believers who prioritize the Presence of God in all that they do.  We are captivated by the truth that we have been called to impact the world through acts of service, mission and gifts of Holy Spirit.  We are looking for a minister to join a visionary team to lead the Millenial and Z generation to discover the adventure of following Christ as His disciples and to prepare them to impact the world that they will enter; school and the work force.  This conviction stands firm, that these generations, The Millenials and Z, are not the next generation, but the now generation.

This opportunity will challenge the minister to continue to grow by integrating into an established elder and youth team.  The freedom to explore vision, creativity and experience is celebrated, all to the glory of God.
