Youth Pastor

Fairfield Christian church is growing.  We are looking for our next Youth Pastor to continue the growth and development of the Wave Student Ministry here in Lancaster, Ohio.

As we transition our current youth pastor to an associate pastor role, we are looking for someone to lead our student ministry to the next level.  Having a large Christian school on campus provides a unique opportunity for our youth pastor to minister each and every day without leaving the building.

Our multi-generational church has made student ministry a priority as we move forward in fulfilling our vision: Impacting every generation with the truth of Jesus Christ.

The ideal candidate will possess:

– A desire for a long-term student ministry position

– Experience managing volunteer leaders
– Experience running a ministry of 25+ students
