Director of Youth Ministries


Jonesboro First UMC seeks an energetic, committed disciple of Jesus to lead our youth ministry.  Jonesboro First celebrated its 175th anniversary in 2020, and we have a long history of supporting children and youth in our community.  Our youth group is small, but creative leadership will foster growth and deepened faith.  We are a diverse congregation and encourage diversity in our staff and leaders.
This part-time position includes planning mission projects and fellowship opportunities, but the most important component is helping our youth discover the life-changing power of following Jesus.  The youth director has responsibility for dynamic programming on Sunday mornings, Sunday evenings and Wednesday evenings.  The director also plans various special events throughout the year.  Successful candidates will demonstrate an understanding of United Methodist theology; knowledge of the UMC’s Safe Sanctuaries policy; a commitment to working with others in a diverse setting; and experience managing budgets and volunteers.  
A bachelor’s degree in a related field is preferred.
