Youth Worker / Youth Pastor
Mount Zion Baptist Church – Cardigan, Wales
Position: Full-time Youth Worker / Youth Pastor
Church: Mount Zion Baptist Church
Priory Street, Cardigan
Contact: Board of Deacons
Secretary: Tony Brookin
Mount Zion Church is trusting God for an individual who is called by God to serve youth and young adults in the Cardigan area. We believe God has blessed us with a growing church and a growing need to minister to youth and young adults. Our vision is to nurture the next generation – those who are already participating in the life of the church, and the young people of the community.
The right individual would know that they are called to work with young people and would be able to articulate this calling. They would also have a vibrant, growing faith, and would have relevant experience and training. Responsibilities would include: overseeing an active children’s ministry and supporting volunteer workers; working with youth and young adults in a discipling capacity; supporting the existing youth work as well as bringing new vision; bringing a missional heart to all that they do; and participating in Mount Zion community activities and Sunday services as appropriate.
Cardigan is a Welsh speaking area, so knowledge of the Welsh language is also an asset.
Call and Character:
These two things are top of our list – Call and Character. We want to discern together, and with God, a call upon the life of the individual right for our community. It is also paramount that this person be of godly character, fully devoted to living a holy life before God (not perfect, but holy – 1 Thes. 4:7 and 2 Tim. 1:8-9 and 1 Pet. 1:15). While Calling and Character top our list, experience and education are also important. We are seeking an individual with experience working with youth and someone who can lead and work well with the existing volunteers. Some formal theological education, or the desire to pursue such training, is preferable.
About Mount Zion Baptist Church:
Mount Zion is a Church seeking to live fully for God. Our website states: Real People. Real God. Real Life Change. And we believe it! God does transform us when we fully yield our lives to Him. We are also a very welcoming community, walking in God’s grace and his blessing. We gather as a community twice on Sundays (morning and evening) and mid-week in house groups (twice a month) and prayer and Bible study (twice a month). Our Sunday gatherings are multi-generational with a sensitive blend of old and new music. Our worship is God-centered and our emphasis is both on being disciples and making disciples. The preaching and teaching strives to be both biblical and applicable to life.
