Student Ministry Director

Hope Church

240 Wolfpit Road, Wilton, CT 06897 USA   MAP
Demographic: suburban
Statement Of Faith: https://myhopect.org/about/#staff

Hope Church is looking for an energetic, biblically-based, high-capacity leader. This person will lead students into deeper relationships with Jesus and celebrate authentic life change. Oversight is 6th–12th grade with continued relationships beyond graduation.

The Oasis Student Ministry is in transition and looks forward to finding stability with its new Student Ministry Director. However, it continues to invest in students and families because of its ten active student ministry volunteers and student-led worship team.

Currently, Oasis has about 30 students (MS & HS) that meet for large group events and 20+ students who participate in a small group. Summer plans are being finalized but historically, an Oasis summer has included participation in the Creation (music) Festival, providing support for VBS, playing games at Lake Compounce, and serving on an international mission trip.

The OPPORTUNITY is tremendous!

There are not many other youth groups in town. Oasis is the place to go for students who are curious about Christ, and a place parents believe is safe.

Oasis has a strong foundation and a good reputation in the area and receives lots of support and encouragement from Hope Church.
