Youth Pastor Needed – PT – Columbia City, IN

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Blue River Church of the Brethren, Columbia City, Indiana, is searching for a part-time youth pastor.

Blue River is one of the more conservative congregations in the Northern Indiana District, and we try to maintain faithful adherence to the historic teachings of the Brethren, including trine immersion baptism for all members, the full Love Feast, the prayer veiling for services, modest dress, and lifetime faithfulness in marriage. Our basic statement of faith is the Brethren Card.

We are seeking someone who will uphold and model these understandings to our youth.

Our youth are energetic, and some have experienced short-term missions trips over the past several years. They are seeking to honor the Lord, and are in need of discipleship, instruction in God’s Word, and worthwhile Christian activity. We are not interested in “baby-sitting” our youth, but in challenging them to live for the Lord now.

We have an active Youth Steering Committee, and supportive parents. The right man will find our youth a joyful challenge.

If you are interested in this position, please request a copy of our profile from the

Banquo Christian Church in Banquo, IN is seeking a part time youth pastor. Banquo Christian Church is an independent Christian church located 10-15 minutes from the towns of La Fontaine and Andrews; and 15-20 minutes from the cities of Marion and Huntington. Our vision is to glorify God by fulfilling the mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ in the power of His Spirit.

The primary focus of the ministry will be Jr. and Sr. High School students. Duties will include:

  • Modeling faithful service to Jesus Christ and His church
  • Teaching Sunday school
  • Teaching Wednesday evenings
  • Plan and lead in outreach and ministry activities
  • Plan and lead in recreational-fellowship activities

There are already ministries and leaders in place for younger children, so your responsibilities toward elementary age students would be extremely minimal. You would certainly be welcome to help out with younger children, but would not be expected to. The only exception would be the week of VBS during which you would be expected to help coordinate the involvement of the teens in the program. (Last year we used Answers in Genesis curriculum.)

Currently the group averages 6-8 in attendance. Latitude and empowerment will be given to the person who demonstrates faithfulness and responsibility. You will find a solid core of people who will be eager to do whatever they can to help your ministry and service prosper.

Qualifications include: Knowledge of the Bible and ability to teach it; demonstrated record of service in a local church; a desire to see Christ formed in the lives of the youth.

This will be a paid position, but you will almost certainly need another source of income.

Questions and applications may be directed to Pastor Brad Kelly.
