Student Pastor

Zarephath Christian Church

2 Ministry Center Drive, Zarephath, NJ 08890 USA   MAP
Demographic: suburban, multi-ethnic
Statement Of Faith:

The student ministry receives abundant love, attention, and leadership from the terrific ZCC volunteers (approximately 12 on the team) and lots of support from the pastoral team. The adults who serve the students love Jesus and love the students, and they want the students to love Jesus and share the hope he offers with others.

Evangelism and service are a high priority at ZCC and two things that distinguish them in the community. When they share Jesus and serve others, they expect people to say "Yes" to Jesus. The church would love to see the Student Ministry do more outreach in schools and serve the community. The right leader has a huge opportunity here.

Each Friday, 60-70 students in grades 6-12 gather in the gym from 6:30 - 9 PM for food, fun, student-led worship, teaching, and small group discussion. (Small groups divided by grade and gender.)
During their Z-Madness events, attendance grows to 100-115.

The nights are fun, biblical, worshipful, and a safe place to ask tough questions. Each week, ZCC invites students to attend a midweek D-Group where students go deeper into God's word and emphasize Bible application at home, school, and in their community.
Camps, mission trips, serving on Sunday, and on-site retreats also play a significant role in ZCC's student ministry strategy.

The opportunity to lead the student ministry is enormous for the right person. ZCC is a church with a "can-do" attitude. They love God, trust one another, and believe students are called to serve and change the world for Jesus TODAY!

You will get a lot of support from the staff and volunteers, and you will have the freedom to dream and try new things.
ZCC is not the church to land for a few years until something else comes along. ZCC is a church family looking for a teammate who wants to become part of its community. You will not be asked to babysit. ZCC is looking for a strong leader with a big heart and a desire to mold and shape the future legacy of ministry in the northeast.
This is a church family committed to love, live, and serve like Jesus, and they're looking for the right person eager to do the same.
