Full time Next Gen Director Youth/Student Pastor/ Director

Job Description

Pinelake is passionate about reaching students for Christ, and we're looking for the next lead student pastor to develop a full staff team (which currently consists of six team members) and pilot this ministry at our Reservoir Campus! As a church, our vision is to see Mississippi changed one life change story at a time! And, we are bold enough to believe that Jesus has an extraordinary plan for students (grades 5-12) in accomplishing this vision.

At our core, we believe that this vision comes to reality as we engage students to learn from Christ, live in Christ, and lead others to know Christ.

If the mission of your life is making disciples for Jesus Christ and the avenue God has gifted you to accomplish this mission is through students and the servant leaders who invest relationally in them, apply today!

We'll connect soon if you are:

  • Empowering a staff team of three or more to experience exponential growth in your ministry contexts;
  • Connected to youth culture and have at least five years of experience leading in a youth ministry with over 200 students;
  • Actively multiplying leadership by recruiting, developing, and inspiring student and adult leaders;
  • Great at communicating with others in large crowds and in small circles; and,
  • Already celebrating stories of life change in your current ministry context.

You'll thrive with us if you:

  • Lead leaders who lead others;
  • Have the drive to create and build;
  • Never settle for the status quo, and always rise to a challenge;
  • Enjoy leading a dynamic team toward a powerful mission;
  • Energetically lead teams; and,
  • Know what Faulkner meant when he said, “To understand the world, you must first understand a place like Mississippi.”

Educational requirements:

Bachelor’s degree minimum, master’s or seminary degree preferred.

Pinelake's Story:

The story of Pinelake Church began in February of 1971 in Brandon, Mississippi in a mobile chapel in a rural area near The Reservoir.

Weekly, we serve over 12,000 people, but we celebrate stories of life change one person at a time.
