Student Pastor

Job Details

Imagine a church that’s not quite 5 years old, that started as a multi-site and is now a church plant with a young dynamic staff in a town that’s listed as one of the fastest growing cities in America. Imagine a place where the possibilities are endless, where there are two power-house high schools. They are both some of Iowa’s largest and rank highest in academics (not to mention having dominance in sports!). One of those schools sits directly across the street from our very visible church located on one of the main street of our town. The current student ministry is very healthy and has a solid volunteer leadership team. Imagine a place that just simply needs a ministry leader who has the ability to gather and equip students. Seriously… this is a dream youth ministry position and it could be yours!

Keystone Church in Ankeny, Iowa located just 9 miles north of DesMoines, Iowa is looking for a catalytic leader, who would be someone who can reach the harvest in our city and has the character and capacity to do something about it.


• Proven leadership of ministering to students in a full time staff role.

• A bachelor’s degree.

• Formal theological training. If none, must be willing to pursue.

Reaching the next generation is a high value of Keystone church. It’s evident from the moment you step foot on the property. If you have a desire to reach those far from Christ while equipping those in Christ, you are just who we’ve been praying for.


Keystone has a non-denominational feel but it’s roots are Southern Baptist. They have a heart to plant other churches and have already done so although they are under 5 years old.
