Pastor of Student Ministries

Quaboag Church is a 30-year-old congregation with around 140 people in attendance on Sunday mornings.  In a given month, there are around 200 people that attend.  We are currently rebuilding momentum post-pandemic and excited about new growth through salvations and those searching for God in the aftermath of a very difficult year-and-a-half.  As such, our church body is a mixture of those searching for God, those who are new to the faith, and those who have known Christ for decades.  A high priority is placed on building disciples through relational, in-home life-groups.  This applies to both students and adults.  We are a contemporary church that is driven to be a valuable member of our community that creates an authentic space to Worship, Connect, and Serve.
We are seeking a full-time pastor to partner with as we build toward what we know will be a bright future.  Our Jr. High/Sr. High ministry, Catalyst, currently has around 35 students that represent several schools in our area. There is a great core of students that are currently in the early stages of a year focused on being disciple-makers.  Our vision is #4100, which represents the total number of students we have the opportunity to reach in the schools in the communities around our church.  Coming on staff would mean taking this vision and continuing to reach out into our schools with the hope of Christ.
This new pastor will also oversee our KidZone ministry, supporting a dedicated team of leaders. Additionally, he will give leadership to our Director of Communications, who ensures our reach online is both creative and intentional.
Student ministry will be a major component of this position, but we currently have a couple of needs in addition to youth ministry: church connections/administration and worship ministry.   Applicants need not possess strengths in these other areas to apply, but they are desirable.  However, through the application and interview process, we will determine with the applicant if their skill set is a good fit.  Our goal is to leave these additional needs up to God and to the individual strengths of applicants to this position.

Overview:
Quaboag Church seeks a community-minded leader of students who will cultivate within the church body a passion for loving God, loving others and sharing Christ.  For student ministries, this means leading leaders well, as there is a great team in place.  For worship ministry, this means leading and developing a diverse, talented, and contemporary worship ministries team that currently serves the church.  Alternatively, for church connections/administration, this means leading and developing systems for a diverse team of volunteers to help people connect to church life through outreach, membership, groups and service.
