Job Description

Student Director/Pastor

Full-Time/Benefits Eligible
Location: Albuquerque, NM

Would you enjoy pouring into the health and the wellbeing of students in middle and high school?  How about providing thought-provoking, spiritually uplifting worship experiences? Then this opportunity is for you!

We are in search of a youth pastor (director) who has a passion for pouring into student life and coming alongside students and their relationship with Christ. You'll join a fun-loving, energy-drinking, denim-wearing team known as Remix, our student ministry.

  • Create a fun and exciting service experience for students. If we're not fun, we can't talk Jesus with them. In student ministry, you'll have to be able to turn on the goofy and the relational.
  • Spend time building life-changing relationships with students through social activities such as school visits, outreach events, and community get-togethers.  
  • Bring your energy as you'll need to connect with students quickly while communicating clear biblical truths.
  • Have a blast building up and partnering with a team of Remix volunteers and leaders to reach into the lives of students by whatever means possible.
  • Work together with a passionate team of other student pastors to plan gatherings that bring students together and create space for them to share their story.
  • Be a disciple-maker, pouring into students each week and encouraging them to bring a friend. 
  • Facilitate weekly gatherings for discipleship and small group conversation.
  • Thrive on the creation of biblically accurate, culturally relevant, and high-attraction teaching programs and content.
  • Be a trailblazer when it comes to inspiring others about their relationship with Jesus Christ and have your own dynamic and ever-growing relationship with Christ.
  • A Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies, Youth Ministry, Christian Studies, or Christian Leadership. Other coursework will be considered.
  • Thrive on the details of a plan of action, not letting one side of the tasks drop, yet flexible enough to change direction in the moment.
  • A thirst for a fast-paced, challenging work environment with multiple competing priorities but offers loads of fun while you win one more for Christ.
  • An energetic persona to connect with youth and lead students to the church community.
