Carrollton First United Methodist Church is seeking a full-time Director of Youth Ministries (DYM) with a vibrant and authentic Christian faith and a call for making disciples of Jesus Christ among young people. Every week over 100 unique youth members (6th-12th grade) participate in Sunday School, Sunday evening worship, Bible studies, discipleship groups and fellowship activities. Overall, attendance at all weekly activities averages about 170 students. More than 60 adult volunteers and a Parent Council provide leadership in a state of the art youth center that was completely renovated in 2014. Youth grow in faith and discipleship through a developmental mission strategy that includes local and regional mission activities and trips, culminating in the junior year spring break international mission trip.
Carrollton First UMC is a leader in a vibrant downtown faith community. With four Sunday morning worship services, including a Spanish-language service, our youth are part of a congregation that engages them in a vital personal faith that is lived out in community and ministry with our neighbors. Carrollton is home to The University of West Georgia, one of the fastest growing units of The University System of Georgia. With excellent city and county school systems, Tanner Health Systems, Southwire and other leading industries, Carrollton and Carroll County provide small-town and rural life within an hour’s drive of Atlanta.
The ideal candidate possesses a bachelor’s degree, at least three year’s ministry experience, a collaborative work style, knowledge of and commitment to United Methodist theology and practice, great organizational and relational skills, and the ability to craft a vision and strategy (with the help of pastoral staff and church leaders) to grow this ministry. In addition, the Director of Youth Ministries is responsible for recruiting, training, and supervising volunteers and working with other staff as part of the overall ministry and mission of the church. Compensation is competitive and commensurate with experience. Please send a cover letter and resume with three references to Mr. Brett Carter at email@example.com.
